Stir ingredients for 2 minutes in ice, then strain into a coupe glass that has been pre rinsed in Absinthe.
Lemon twist. Coupe.
Use home-made grenadine if at all possible. Commercially available grenade tends to drown out the other flavours (probably use only 1/4 oz then)
Cocktail created by Giovanni Martinez in 2009 at The Buffalo Club, Santa Monica and is named after Lake Pontchartrain in New Orleans.
