Calvados Cocktail Recipe

So this is a modified recipe from the original one in the Savoy Cocktail guide. The original recipe is 4 oz brandy, 4 oz orange juice, 2 oz orange liqueur and 2 oz orange bitters. That sounds awful. So I modified it to the size of a single cocktail and cut the bitters down to a reasonable level.
