1/2 oz Lemon Juice
1/2 oz Lime Juice
1/2 oz Raspberry Syrup
1/4 oz Absinthe (Kübler)
Shake with ice and strain into a highball glass filled with fresh ice. Top with ~2 oz soda water, garnish with both a wide lemon and lime peel, and add a straw. Variation: use Bourbon instead of gin.
Later in the evening during Mixoloseum's TDN: Charlie Sheen, I discovered a lesser known phrase from Charlie's rants where he mentions a "Dr. Clown Shoes." The name immediately made me think of the classic Tiki drink Dr. Funk that Scott Holliday introduced me to. Instead of the Dr. Funk's rhum agricole base, I was considering Bourbon before switching last minute to gin. When I was still considering whiskey, I thought of the famous New Orleans highball drink, the Roffignac, that uses raspberry syrup and thought it would make a good substitution for Dr. Funk's grenadine. Moreover, with the absinthe in the drink, it would further the New Orleans' feel.
