Bronx Cocktail


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.
