Bar manager Nicole Lebedevitch creates this highball with Armagnac, a robust brandy produced in the Armagnac region of Gascony, France. "You'd think the bold flavors of apricot liqueur, fortified wine and bitters would mask the nuances of Armagnac in this cocktail," she says, "but the Armagnac comes through."

In a cocktail shaker, combine the Armagnac, apricot liqueur, Bonal, lemon juice and bitters. Fill the shaker with ice and shake well. Fine-strain into a chilled ice-filled highball glass, stir in the ginger ale and garnish with the lemon twist.
