The Cocktail

Not as well known as the Manhattan cocktail, the Bronx was created in the very early 1900’s, inspired by the newly opened Bronx zoo. A straight-up cocktail with a ‘perfect’ balance of vermouths lifting the Gin base and fresh orange juice.

 

Bartender Tip:

Freshly squeezed Orange Juice will make all the difference in holding the flavours of this cocktail together. Use Blood Orange for a Bloody Bronx!
