Fallen Leaves

This is a lovely drink that I think reminds me of walking through an apple orchard on a crisp fall day after an early morning rain. I first encountered this drink when a bartender asked me if I happened to know its recipe (a customer having asked her to make one just a few days prior). After looking through countless books from my library to no avail, I finally found it in "American Bar" by Charles Schumann.

3/4 ounce calvados
3/4 ounce sweet vermouth
1/4 ounce dry vermouth
1 dash brandy
