3⁄4 oz Genever
3⁄4 oz Batavia Arrack
3⁄4 oz Sweet vermouth
3⁄4 oz Campari
1 Cherry (As garnish)

Stir with ice, strain into a cocktail coupe, and garnish with a cherry.


Quirky and complex. Genever puts it somewhere between a Negroni and a Boulevardier and the Batavia Arrack close to a Right Hand all in the same glass.


Inspired by the Right Hand at Milk & Honey and riffs like the Tres Hands, I decided to create a Genever and Batavia Arrack variation that I dubbed the Dutch Hand. The Dutch besides distilling Genever are major importers of Batavia Arrack dating back to the Dutch East India Trading Company and now with rum merchants like E&A Scheer. Moreover, the combination of Genever and Batavia Arrack was one that worked well in two drinks that I have had in the past.
