The Bronx Cocktail


Tonight I had no idea what I wanted for our Saturday cocktail, so I hit one of many cocktail books and headed up to the liquor cabinet and this is what I decided on. A strong drink with a hint of orange, perfect for a tired mommy and daddy.

2 parts Gin
1 part sweet vermouth
1 part dry vermouth
Juice of one orange
Orange curls for the glass

Pour all but orange curls into cocktail shaker, fill with ice, shake for 1 minute and serve. I make mine in advance pour out of the cocktail shaker into a measuring cup – discard the ice and pour the cocktail back into the shaker and put it in the fridge until it is time to drink.
