Loud Speaker Cocktail

1/8 Lemon Juice. (1/4 oz Lemon Juice)
1/8 Cointreau. (1/4 oz Cointreau)
3/8 Dry Gin. (3/4 oz North Shore Distiller’s Gin #6)
3/8 Brandy. (3/4 oz Osocalis Brandy)

Shake well and strain into cocktail glass.

This it is what gives to Radio Announcers their peculiar enunciation. Three of them will produce oscillation and after five it is possible to reach the osculation stage.

Dictionary.com gives 4 possible definitions of “osculation”.

os·cu·la·tion
–noun
1. the act of kissing.
2. a kiss.
3. close contact.
4. Geometry. the contact between two osculating curves or the like.

The wikipedia gives an additional definition for osculate, “to bring into focus or tune, to attune.” Which makes the most sense to me, at least in this context.

Kind of a pain in the ass to measure, but an enjoyable light, dry cocktail, all the same.

This post is one in a series documenting my ongoing effort to make all of the cocktails in the Savoy Cocktail Book, starting at the first, Abbey, and ending at the last, Zed.
