The Right Hand

Mickey McIlroy, Milk & Honey | New York

Mickey McIlroy’s The Right Hand, created during his tenure at Milk & Honey, reads like a rum-based take on the Negroni. Sam Ross, another Milk & Honey alum, and co-owner alongside McIlroy of Attaboy, created the Left Hand as a complement, spotlighting bourbon in place of rum.
