Cocktail Hour: The Bronx

This cocktail dates all the way back to the 1905. It was created at the Waldorf Astoria by Johnny Solon. but you don't see it on menus very often. Still, any cocktail bar worth their paper napkins will shake one up for you if you ask nicely. The Bronx is essentially a martini, with a splash of orange juice. Sounds strange, tastes wonderful.

You'll need:
  • 75ml gin
  • 25ml dry vermouth
  • 25ml sweet vermouth
  • 25ml Orange juice
Make it:

Pour everything into a cocktail shaker over ice. Shake, strain into a martini glass. Garnish with a twist of orange and imagine yourself sipping at the Astoria with a jazz pianist tinkling in the background.
