In Marcel Pagnol's play "Marius," Cesar tries to show Marius the right way to make a cocktail.
Since I know next to nothing about mixed drinks, I'm stuck as to what it is. Any ideas?
"CÉSAR: First of all you put in one third of curaçao. Just a little third. Right?
Next, one third of lemon juice, a slightly bigger third. Got that? Then, a generous third of orange Picon. Look at the colour. That's exactly how it should look. And finally, a large third of water. And there it is!
MARIUS: That makes four thirds.
CÉSAR: Exactly. I just hope that this time you've got the idea. (He takes a swig of the drink.)"
