Carpenter's Hand from Lolinda

Lolinda bar manager Chris Lane adapted this cocktail from an old Playboy bar book, and particularly likes the balanced blend of a very dry flavor with something rich and sweet.

Armagnac plus the honey-sweetness of Drambuie and a splash of dry sherry makes for a boozy but balanced drink, "a great pre or post-dinner tipple," per Lane's recommendation.
