Sarai wanted something with gin the other evening. We’ve made a number of gin drinks lately but wanted to try something new this time.
* 1 1/2 ounces gin
* 1/4 ounce Italian sweet vermouth
* 1/4 ounce French dry vermouth
* 1/2 ounce fresh orange juice
* 1/2 ounce fresh lemon juice
* 1/2 ounce simple syrup
* Orange twist for garnish
Combine all liquid ingredients in an ice-filled cocktail shaker. Shake until cold, then strain into a chilled cocktail glass. Garnish with an orange twist.
The Bronx Bomber is a variation of the Bronx Cocktail, created by Johnnie Salon and which appeared in the Old Waldorf-Astoria Bar Book, 1935. The main differences here are that this version adds the lemon juice, which does not appear in the original recipe, and then balances it with the simple syrup. This recipe omits the optional dash of Angostura bitters. As a big fan of gin and lemon, this one is a winner.
