Fascinating takes on good ol' Dr. Funk and his namesakes in the Tiki drink world.

HUGE appreciation to BigBroTiki for hours of enjoyment in reading through the many interesting, twists, turns, and tangents on this post. The ultimate compliment, you have inspired me to create cocktails! Since we already have versions of the Dr. Funk and well as Dr. Funk's son, I now give to the world, Dr. Funk's First Wife and Dr. Funk's Second Wife. With faithfulness to the original ingredients, here they are:

DR. FUNK'S FIRST WIFE
(Fiery and passionate, like I imagine his marriage to Lenora was.)
1 ¼ Smith and Cross rum, ¼ El Dorado 15 year old rum, ½ B.G. Reynolds passion fruit syrup, ½ Stirrings grenadine, ½ lime juice, 5 drops absinthe. Shake. Top with 2 club soda' Serve in a Collins glass.

(Had to put a 15 year old rum in there as an homage to the 15 year old Lenora.)

DR. FUNK’S SECOND WIFE
(Smooth and pleasant, like I imagine his second wife was.)
2 Flor d’Cana silver rum, ½ Appleton Estate gold rum, ½ Licor 43 liqueur, ½ lemon juice, 1/4 Stirrings grenadine, 3 sprays absinthe. Shake. Top with 1 club soda. Serve in a Collins glass.

More fun - as a tribute to other topics raised in this post, I offer:

** TROPPENKOLLER REMEDY
(My cure for the dangerous malady, Going Troppo.)

1 Cruzen dark rum, ½ Lemon Hart 151 rum, 1/8 allspice dram, 1½ pineapple juice, ¼ lime juice, ¼ Licor 43, 1/8 Becherovka bitters, 3 cherry bitters, 4 Angostura bitters. Shake. Add a dash of nutmeg and top with 1 soda. Serve in a Pilsner glass.

** JAMES MURRAY’S MISTAKE
(Named after poor James Murray, whose mistake was not to grab for this cocktail. It is an homage to the famous Ray's Mistake, the signature drink of the Tiki-Ti in Los Angeles, containing several ingredients thought to be included in that cocktail.)

¾ Appleton Estate gold rum, ¾ Plymouth gin, ½ lemon juice, ½ B.G. Reynolds passion fruit syrup, 1 pineapple juice, 8 drops vanilla extract. Shake. Add ½ Coruba dark rum float. Serve in a double Old Fashioned glass.

Cheers.



I just unearthed the beginnings, and Tom ran with it - for pages and pages! I love it when folks get inspired thus. So to see your collection of yummy sounding recipes carrying the concepts of the drink and its history further is a real kick, thank you

Buried in an obscure photo album in the State Library of New South Wales, Australia was this photo of Dr. Funk… the album contains personal photos dating from 1890 to 1899 of Paula and Moses David, early British traders in Samoa… their nearest neighbor was none other than Dr. Funk!





The entire photo album may be found online at:

nice! "Resident doctor at Samoa"

lmao, Dr. Funk is looking a little portly, i fear that walking stick may have been a prop! but at least he had that hand-rolled cigarette to keep them hiking legs moving!

thanks for the great find!!
