Bronx Cocktail

The Monkey in New York

© Jochen Hirschfeld

If you think that the Bronx Cocktail is only drunk by tough guys, to the sounds of hip-hop, then think again. The mild-mannered Black Forest monkey also enjoys its sweet and fruity taste. How and where this particular mix originated, however, is the subject of many tales: The most popular theory is that Johnnie Salon created the cocktail in the bar of the Waldorf Astoria. He is thought to have come up with the idea for this refreshing drink in response to a customer’s request to be surprised with something “new”. And so a genuine classic was born: uncomplicated, clear and fruity, with that distinctive flavour. Shake 6 cl Monkey 47 Schwarzwald Dry Gin, 1.5 cl dry vermouth, 1.5 cl sweet vermouth and 3 cl orange juice on ice. Served in a coupette, the Bronx Cocktail is one of those aperitifs that is pretty much guaranteed to get your evening off to a great start.
Cheers!
