I'm surprised my fellow monkeys haven't adopted the affectation of ordering a Bronx with each meal:
* 2 ounces gin
* 1/2 ounce dry vermouth
* 1/2 ounce sweet vermouth
* 1 ounce fresh orange juice
I'm surprised this article doesn't mention one of the most historically important facts about the Bronx--it was the first drink Bill Wilson got smashed on. He was nervous at a party, and had a few of them, and said "I had found the elixir of life."
Bill Wilson is better known as Bill W., the co-founder of Alcoholics Anonymous.
I'll pass that along to my pop, a "friend of Bill W." lo these 30+ years. :o)
Is there another Summer of Gin in store?
Warning: Do not go drinking on Staten Island. In fact, don't be on Staten Island.
I will go you one further and just steer clear of the NYC area in general. Better safe than sorry!
