Monkey Gland

1 12 oz Gin
1 12 oz Orange juice
1 t Absinthe
1 t Raspberry syrup (or grenadine)
Shake, strain, straight up, cocktail glass
Original calls for "raspberry or other sweet juice." I assume a syrup was intended. Grenadine is usually used today.

Two variants of the Monkey

Two variants of the Monkey Gland were combined. The other variation called for only 1/2 tsp of Absinthe and Grenadine.
