Originally from Hugo Ensslin, you may substitute a quality applejack or apple brandy for the Calvados if you wish.  Germain-Robin Heirloom Apple Brandy comes to mind.

I have dialed up the amount of lemon juice somewhat from the original recipe as i found equal parts of Benedictine, Orange Curacao and lemon juice a bit on the sweet side.
