2/3 Applejack (2 oz Laird's)
2 dash Sherry (1/2 oz Lustau's East India Solera)
2 dash Pineapple Juice (1/2 oz)
1 dash Orange Bitters (Regan's)

Shake with ice and strain into a cocktail glass.
A few Thursdays ago, I reached for Pioneers of Mixing at Elite Bars: 1903-1933 and stumbled upon the Hillside. Since sherry and pineapple juice are a great pairing, this Algonquin-like number seemed worthy of a spin. In the glass, the Hillside proffered pineapple and nutty sherry aromas. The pineapple then filled the sip and was followed by apple and sherry notes on the swallow.
