Two Fridays ago, I made a drink that I spotted on Eric Witz's tumblr that he created called the Red Right Hook. The recipe was a mashup of a Manhattan variation, the Red Hook, and a Rum Negroni, the Right Hand, with a nod to Nick Cave's Red Right Hand song for a name. The only substitution I made was using Smith & Cross in place of the Trinidadian rum he called for; perhaps, I should have reached for a less aggressive rum though.
