According to the 1931 book Old Waldorf Days, the Bronx Cocktail was created around 1900 by a teetotaling bartender named Johnnie Solon who worked at the Men’s Bar at the Waldorf-Astoria in, yes, Manhattan. You can still order this refreshing citrusy martini at the historic, mahogany-paneled Bull and Bear Bar.

Adapted from Imbibe, who adapted it from The Savoy Cocktail Book, 1930.

Ingredients

  • 2 Ounces gin
  • 1/2 Ounce sweet vermouth
  • 1 Ounce fresh orange juice
  • Ice cubes
  • Orange slice for garnish
  • 1/2 Ounce dry vermouth

A cocktail historian would probably tell you that the Bronx cocktail is a direct descendant of the Martini. Fortunately, you don’t know any cocktail historians, so you don’t have to listen to a long-winded saga full of apocryphal stories and nitpicky distinctions. Just know that this is pretty much a perfect Martini with orange juice. And, yes, “perfect Martini” is a real, technical term. It means a Martini made with equal parts sweet and dry vermouth, and, if you were wondering, you can also make a perfect Manhattan - which is actually a much more common drink than a perfect Martini. Oh god, we’re cocktail historians now.

How It Tastes: Crisp, Juicy, Strong

Drink If You Like: Martini, Gimlet
