FAQ's

ORIGINS_HISTORY

What is the origin of the Right Hand cocktail?

The Right Hand is a variation of the classic Negroni cocktail, tailored to give it a unique twist with the inclusion of chocolate bitters and Jamaican rum. It's believed to have been created as a bartender's take on making a Negroni more palatable to those who favor the deeper, richer notes found in rum and chocolate.

INGREDIENT_SUBSTITUTIONS

Can I substitute a different type of rum in the Right Hand cocktail?

Yes, you can substitute a different type of rum in the Right Hand cocktail, although Jamaican rum is recommended for its rich and robust flavor. If you opt for a different rum, consider using one that has a full-bodied taste to maintain the cocktail's character. A dark or aged rum could be a good alternative.

NON_ALCOHOLIC_VARIATIONS

Is there a non-alcoholic version of the Right Hand?

While the Right Hand is known for its blend of alcoholic ingredients, you can create a non-alcoholic version by substituting the Aperol, red vermouth, and Jamaican rum with non-alcoholic aperitifs and rum alternatives. The chocolate bitters, due to their minimal alcohol content and usage in small amounts, can still be used or substituted with a non-alcoholic chocolate flavoring.

FAQ

What makes the Right Hand different from a classic Negroni?

The Right Hand differs from a classic Negroni primarily due to its use of Jamaican rum instead of gin and the addition of chocolate bitters. These substitutions change the drink's flavor profile significantly, offering a cocktail that leans towards sweeter and more complex chocolate and rum notes, in contrast to the Negroni's more balanced and slightly bitter taste.

OCCASION_SUITABILITY

What is the best occasion to serve the Right Hand cocktail?

The Right Hand cocktail, with its rich and slightly sweet profile, makes it an excellent choice for evenings and cooler weather. It's particularly suited for after-dinner drinks or at cocktail parties where sophisticated, complex cocktails are appreciated. Its unique flavor profile also makes it a great conversation starter.
