Appetizer Cocktail

A simple twist on the Bronx Cocktail.

Appetizer Cocktail:
  • 3/4 oz. gin
  • 3/4 oz. Dubonnet
  • Juice of 1/4 of an orange
Shake and strain into 3 oz. Cocktail glass.

This one is simple enough, and delightfully, doesn't have any Creme de Cacao in it. That said, I've never been a huge fan of Bronx-style cocktails. They're good and everything, but in my opinion, orange juice just doesn't add much to a cocktail, particularly in small amounts. Maybe it's because I'm so used to drinks composed solely of a glass of orange juice with some alcohol in them (Screwdriver, Tequila Sunrise, etc.) where the orange juice is a huge part of the drink's flavor profile. But honestly, this isn't bad. It's a standard, and I'd recommend it if you don't have any experience with this kind of drink.
