Bronx Cocktail | Classic Pre-Prohibition Waldorf Astoria Recipe

Bronx Cocktail Waldorf Astoria Recipe

This cocktail was named after (surprise) the famous neighborhood in New York. This version I have included is not the original. The original version came from Hugo Ensslin in his 1917 book Recipes for Mixed drinks. This recipe is the Waldorf-Astoria’s version from the 1930s which substitutes orange juice for orange bitters. Even though this is the newer version of the two Bronx cocktails, it is actually the lesser known of the two and 9 times out of 10 an online search will return the Hugo Ensslin version. I just personally like this version more.
