The boy and his poison: The Right Hand

First up this week is the Right Hand. If I'm guilty of one thing it's my total obsession with a certain juniper based spirit. So when I found a recipe that presented the opportunity of sharing a gin-based classic with even the gin-naysayers, I couldn't help but go for it.    

The Right Hand is essentially a rum based negroni enhanced with a few dashes of Xocolatl Mole bitters (better known as chocolate bitters and available here). So not only will you be drinking a rum fuelled negroni but you'll be getting a boozy chocolate hit as well.

You'll need:
  • 50ml aged rum 
  • 25ml red vermouth
  • 25ml Campari
  • 2 dashes chocolate bitters
Make it:
  • Add all your ingredients to an ice filled shaker
  • Shake for 10-15 seconds
  • Strain into a cocktail glass and prove the gin-naysayers wrong.

    1. The Negroni is traditionally made with gin, Kate. This is a twist on it.
