Bronxathon: Bronx Deco

Inspired in part by another cacao cocktail, the great Twentieth Century, I got to thinking about something Dr. Cocktail wrote about how it’s what Art Deco tastes like.

The borough of the Bronx has many fine examples of Art Deco architecture.

Bronx Deco

  • 1 1/2 oz Tanqueray London dry gin
  • 1/2 oz Punt e Mes
  • 1/2 oz Lillet
  • 1/4 oz white creme de cacao
  • 3/4 oz orange juice
  • 2 dashes Bittermens Xocolatl Mole bitters
  • 1 dash Fee Bros orange bitters
Stir with ice and strain into a chilled cocktail glass.

I went for a subtle chocolate note here. The bitters adds some cacao and complexity without sweetness. The housemate says this is his favorite Bronx variation so far.
