The Bronx Cocktail, a Pre-Prohibition Drink, Gets Gussied Up

Bronx cocktail
Carpano's modern take on the classic Bronx swaps OJ for fresh tangerine juice and uses their Dry Vermouth and Antica Formula.

The old-school Bronx Cocktail, which was essentially an equal-parts martini with the addition of orange juice, was wildly popular in the mid-1930s. This iteration from Carpano freshens up the old formula with tangerine juice, and uses both their Antica Formula and Dry vermouths.


  • 2 ounces gin
  • 1 ounce fresh tangerine juice
  • 12 ounce Carpano Antica Formula
  • 14 ounce Carpano Dry Vermouth
  • 1 dash Angostura bitters
  • 1 dash orange bitters


Shake all ingredients with ice and strain into a chilled coupe or cocktail glass. Garnish with an orange zest and a wide orange twist.
