Bronx Cocktail

Bronx Cocktail
Contributor

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.

Cocktail Shopping Tip

Buy your booze in bulk – transfer what you need into smaller bottles to stock your bar – you’ll save money and have enough leftover for your next party.

Cocktail Cooking Tip

Add another layer of flavor to your cocktails by making your own simple syrup – combine equal parts sugar and water with whatever aromatics you like – fresh herbs, whole spices, citrus, or chile peppers – heat to dissolve sugar and strain before using.
