At the Baldwin Bar at Sichuan Garden II, Andrea started with a more straight spirits drink called the Rumble Bee. Bartender Vannaluck Hongthong described how this recipe was Nika Orlovsky's first menu contribution; she originally had Benedictine and the PX sherry, but it was too sweet, so she switched to two sherries and utilized amontillado's drying qualities. Overall, it reminded me of a split rum and split sherry Arawak from 1940s era Trader Vic books.
