Other Left

Other Left cocktail with bourbon and Campari

Cocktail Party owes much to Reddit user “Hebug,” who writes a weekly-ish article exploring a classic cocktail in all of its many variations. His experimentation has led directly to better drinks in Cocktail Party, and for that we’re grateful. The Other Left, then, is a special treat: Hebug steps out on his own and makes his own drink, a wonderful riff on the Revolver and the Boulevardier (and of course, the Left Hand).

Ingredients

Instructions

Stir with ice, strain into a chilled cocktail glass or ice-filled short glass, and garnish with an orange peel.

If you really want to do it justice, flame the peel by heating it up and then squeezing it over the flame, into your drink.

Game Changer

This is a game changer. When you're at the liquor store, thinking, "Yeah, ok fine what does Ancho Reyes liquor get me?" you open the app, look up Chile liquor and see that it gets you like 11 new cocktails. This is addictive, and indeed worth the price. We're having a blast under quarantine. While some of the ingredients are kind of anonymous, the icons look like the Campari bottle, and the descriptions often tell you if Campari will work or if you need Aperol. If you <3 cocktails, get this.
