2/3 Rye Whiskey (2 oz Old Overholt)
1/3 Apricot Brandy (1/2 oz Rothman & Winter)
2 dash Lemon Juice (1/2 oz)
1 dash Angostura Bitters

Shake with ice and strain into a cocktail glass; I added a lemon twist.
For my Monday evening nightcap two weeks ago, I began searching in Pioneers of Mixing at Elite Bars: 1903-1933 for a recipe. There, I uncovered the Lasting that reminded me of a Pendennis Club in feel (and perhaps the Fine and Dandy as well). In the glass, the Lasting gave forth a lemon and apricot bouquet. Next, a dry lemon and malt sip moved into rye, apricot, and clove on the swallow.
