1 1/2 oz Copper & Kings Aged Brandy
3/4 oz Cocchi Sweet Vermouth
3/4 oz Carpano Antica Sweet Vermouth
1/2 oz Giffard Apricot Liqueur
2 dash Fee's Whiskey Barrel Bitters

Stir with ice and strain into a small white wine glass. Garnish with a cherry and a lemon twist.
For my first drink at the Baldwin Room at Sichuan Garden, I asked bartender Anthony Vibert for the Domina. Anthony mentioned that it was created by bartender Joel Atlas and featured an American brandy made in Kentucky by the Copper and Kings distillery. Once prepared, the Domina offered a lemon and cherry aroma from the garnishes. Next, the grape notes from the two vermouths paired up on the sip, and the swallow continued with a medley of grape flavors with an apricot and cinnamon finish.
