Calvados Cocktail
Richmond and Annette gave me a bottle of Calvados (French apple brandy) for my birthday. I love Calvados, but I seldom have enough to spare for cocktailian experiments. This surprise windfall enabled me to try a few forgotten cocktails from Ted Haigh's Vintage Spirits and Forgotten Cocktails
The Calvados Cocktail was an obvious starting point. It's delicious, in a very oddball kind of way. It finishes with an unbelievable blast of orange bitters that makes it spectacular... or just weird. Try it, and then decide for yourself.

Ingredients

1 1⁄2ozCalvados
1 1⁄2ozOrange Juice
3⁄4ozOrange Curacao
3⁄4ozOrange Bitters (yes, that's a lot!)

Instructions

Combine all ingredients and shake with ice. Garnish with an orange wheel.
