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.
