Silver Bronx equals Gin, Vermouth, Orange Juice and Egg White, From Gatsby Cocktails

After sensual Silver Stocking recipe from Gatsby Cocktails, Classic Cocktails from the Jazz Age (Ryland, Peters & Small) here comes a Bronx specialty harking back to prohibition days.


The Bronx dates back to the days of Prohibition, when gang bosses reigned and booze played an important part in the economy of the underworld. Different areas of New York became known for the
special cocktails they offered, such as this speciality of the Bronx.

50 ml/2 oz. gin
a dash of dry vermouth
a dash of sweet vermouth
50 ml/2 oz. fresh orange juice
1 egg white

Serves 1

Shake all the ingredients vigorously over ice and strain into a chilled cocktail glass.

Parisian Spirit, Vintage Paris, Coffee, Wine and Tea in Hollister, Missouri

Aug 30
While coffee and coffee shop roaming, I discovered a little piece of Paris in Missouri. In Hollister, Vintage Paris serves coffee, wine, tea and creature conforts. Prior stop on my coffee excursion was Classic Cafes ('The best of London's Vintage Formica Cafes'). Site is bit of a museum itself as it has not been updated since March 2010.
