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).
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.
