Dr. Funk's Son

Dr. Funk's Son is yet another delicious drink created by the great, Trader Vic. Dr. Funk's Son is Trader Vic's version of the original drink Dr. Funk that swaps out 151 rum for Pernod. The drink is served in a spectacular tower of ice which helps to super chill the beverage inside. Due to needing a special mold to create this wonderful mound of ice, Trader Vic's is very limited to how many of these drinks they serve per day.  If you haven't tried one before and would like to, which we highly recommend, make sure to get there early and put this magnificent drink order in on your first round. You won't be disappointed!

Or if you can make your own mound of ice, try it at home!

1 cup crushed ice
2 oz dark Jamaican rum
1/2 oz lemon juice
1/4 oz lime juice 
Dash of grenadine
2 oz sparkling water
1/2 oz 151-proof rum
1 sprig mint for garnish
squeezed lime half reserved for garnish

Put the ice in a mixing glass. Add the dark rum, lemon juice, lime juice, grenadine and simple syrup. Stir to combine. Pour into a highball glass and top with sparking water. Float the 151 rum on top. Garnish with the fresh mint and squeezed lime half.
