2 oz Compass Box Asyla Blended Whisky (Cutty Sark Prohibition)
1 oz Lustau Manzanilla Sherry (Lustau Fino)
1/2 oz Benedictine
2 dash Orange Bitters (Regan's)

Stir with ice, strain into a cocktail coupe, and garnish with a lemon twist.
Two Tuesdays ago, I returned home from work and selected the PDT Cocktail Book as my nightcap inspiration. There, I spotted the Woolworth that seemed like it would make good use of my open bottle of Fino sherry. The recipe was crafted by John Deragon circa 2007 and was named after the Woolworth Building that at one time was the tallest building in Manhattan. Once prepared, the Woolworth cocktail rose to the nostrils with lemon, briny, and herbal aromas. Next, honey and white wine notes swirled on the sip, and the swallow gave forth apricot, smoke, and herbal flavors with a crisp wine and chocolate finish.
