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.

Really Good App

We downloaded the app after seeing it as one of the top posts on /r/cocktails, and we've been playing around with it and adding our ingredients to the list. While it's not an all inclusive list of ingredients (missing some creme de ), it's a solid overall app and tosses out some truly spectacular recipes based on what you have in your liquor cabinet. Minor quibbles for an otherwise fantastic application!
