Drinking Bronxes right now, thanks to, well, what I have in my liquor cabinet. The claim to fame for a Bronx is that that was the drink Nick Charles was referencing in The Thin Man.

The proportions on this drink are very strange, but I think I have lucked onto a decent combination. My usual was a 2:1:1:1. I actually found one that called for four different proportions (roughly 1 : 3/4 : 1/2 : 1/4, with the addition of orange bitters) which seems to work pretty well. :drink:

I'm sure most mixology is more of an art than a science as it comes down to individual taste.

First time having a Negroni tonight, and it isn't bad. Quite bitter. Unfortunately I have no oranges, so I can't garnish it.

This was the trendy cocktail of about, oh, 2017 or so. There's still a trend towards the simpler classics going on, though again, millenials seem to go for vodka over anything else; I was definitely the only person at the Second Chance to drink gin.

Seems a bit off-balanced, and uses that gimmicky DeKuyper's schnapps product, which are sort of like alcoholic SweeTarts. :drink: I'll pass. :yeahno:

Incidentally, has anyone had Aviation? Greg from How to Drink was using some on his show and made reference to it being "not really a London Dry", so I'm wondering about its pedigree :dunno: - I would gather just a distilled gin, as many U.S. brands are.
