Left Hand

Left Hand cocktail with bourbon and Campari

This creation of Milk & Honey bartender Sam Ross is a great “entry-level” level drink for folks looking to get into bitter citrus apertifs (like Campari, which Ross specifically calls for in this drink). If you like this, check out the Right Hand, the sister drink created by Michael McIlroy, another Milk & Honey bartender.

Ross’ original recipe calls for Bittermens’ Xocolatl Mole bitters, a spiced flavor reminiscent of Mexican hot cocoa. Regular chocolate bitters really won’t cut it here; you need something with a bit of a kick, like the Xocolatl Mole or Fee Brothers’ Aztec Chocolate bitters.

Cocktail Party app on tablets and phones

Get the App

The Cocktail Party app puts this drink – and hundreds more – in your pocket, and tells you what you can make from the ingredients you have at home. It's the best $3.99 you'll ever spend on a drink.

Terrific Design!

Absolutely love this app. Gives a great visual representation of the ingredients and the user interface is well designed. Been using it to learn how to make cocktails, the descriptions are great about the drinks. As a novice barman, I love that I am learning the origin of the drink and alternative ways to make the drink. Be prepared to have a wide range of alcohol at you disposal! I can make heaps of drinks with the decent home collection I have, but seeing all the recipes what I could make gets me excited! Highly recommended, everyone loves the person who makes excellent drinks!
