The Bronx Cocktail Recipe

Updated: Oct 17, 2022

The Bronx cocktail is described as a simple variation of the perfect martini with the addition of orange juice. Though the origin of the Bronx is questionable it is generally accepted that it was the rival to the Manhattan cocktail and invented by Johnnie Solon from the Waldorf Astoria, New York, sometime shortly after 1900 and named after the Bronx Zoo.
