Bronxathon: Bronx Discotheque

This third cocktail in the Bronxathon series I’d like to send out to all you Wallbangers. (Wall Bangers? Wallbanger Bangers? Whatev.) The first time I made this, I had spotted it browsing Galliano recipes in the CocktailDB and just couldn’t resist. It turned out to be not unlike other Bronxes in general character, and to have the same balancing issues. So I adjusted it a little. It might’ve seemed like cheating to use a blood orange in a Bronx, but since that Galliano was already in there....

Bronx Discotheque

  • 1 oz gin (1 oz Bombay)
  • 1/2 oz Galliano (3/4 oz Galliano)
  • 1/4 oz sweet vermouth (1/2 oz Dolin Rouge)
  • 1/4 oz dry vermouth (1/2 oz Dolin Dry)
  • 3/4 oz orange juice (3/4 oz blood orange juice)
Shake in an iced cocktail shaker and strain.

This is fruity without being sticky, and increasing the vermouth and Galliano helps the overall roundness as well as the whammy of the thing. Blood orange is one of those hybrids that’s a bit like a red grapefruit, so it’s a little friendlier than the standard juice orange in a drink like this.

Seems like it should appeal to those who love the nightlife.
