2 oz Apple brandy, Lairds Bonded (Calvados would work too)
1⁄2 oz Amaro Nardini
1⁄4 oz Oloroso sherry (Or Amontillado)
1 twst Lemon peel (As garnish)

Stir with ice, strain into a coupe glass, and garnish with a lemon twist.


After having Death & Co. Denver's Five Points, I began to think about its similarities to the Carroll Gardens -- both maintained the combination of Punt e Mes and Amaro Nardini but had different base spirits and nutty accents. To make my own riff, I swapped the spirit to aged apple brandy, and for a nutty ingredient instead of Maraschino or walnut liqueur, I opted for an oxidized dry sherry. As I learned from the It's a Long, Long Way at Wit's End, a little bit of that sort of sherry goes quite a ways. The apple element made me think of Orchard Street in the Lower East Side in Manhattan that is less than a mile away from the Five Points neighborhood.
