Bronxathon: Obligatory Raspberry Cocktail

There’s already a drink out there called Bronx Cheer, a highball of sorts with apricot brandy and raspberry soda. (Would you like a lollipop with that?) The one below is more of a cocktail in the original sense, and something else entirely—or almost entirely. It also has the raspberry.

The Bronx Cheer Cocktail
  • 1 1/2 oz gin (Bombay)
  • 1/2 oz sweet vermouth (Dolin Rouge)
  • 1/2 oz dry vermouth (Dolin Dry)
  • 1/2 oz raspberry liqueur (Mathilde Framboise)
  • 1/2 oz orange juice
  • 1 dash Fee Bros Aromatic Bitters
Stir with ice and strain into a chilled cocktail glass.

This one’s OK—easy to drink though maybe not my favorite so far. Raspberry easily dominates the basic Bronx recipe but there’s still some complexity underneath.


  1. Your photos are magnificent! I don't know much about various libations, mixing this and that, but if I were ever going to experiment, I know right where I'd go for help--Fogged in Lounge!

    Thanks for the help with the kale.

  2. I like taking the photo of the drink almost as much as I like drinking it. Glad you enjoy them.
