1/3 jigger Bacardi (1 oz Ryan & Wood Folly Cove)
1/3 jigger Calvados (1 oz Morin Selection)
2 dash Apricot Brandy (1/2 oz Rothman & Winter Orchard Apricot)
1 dash Lemon (1/2 oz)

Shake with ice and strain into a cocktail glass. I added a lemon twist.
After the End of Days, I opened up my copy of Boothby's 1934 World Drinks And How To Mix Them and spotted the Sonora which seemed like an intriguing split spirits Daisy. Once mixed, the twist's lemon oil joined the fruitiness of the apricot liqueur and prepared the mouth for the lemony sip. The swallow then alternated between rum and apple flavors and ended with an apricot finish.
