The Bronx Cocktail
A little old school citrus glamour, the Bronx Cocktail.
Like all good cocktails, The Bronx came about from a challenge. In this case, from a lunchtime customer propping up the bar at the Waldorf-Astoria. Spanish-American War vet and master bartender Jonnie Solan slung it together and it was an instant hit.
This recipe, adapted from The 1930 Savoy Cocktail Book, is essentially a martini, with orange juice. Its a punchy little number that, if the Bloody Mary and Bucks Fizz aren't quite cutting it, can cure all manner of hangovers.
You will need
- 1 1/2 ounces Wheadon's Mandarin Lime & Hibiscus Gin
- 1/4 ounce dry vermouth
