Winter Cocktail — Bronx & Income Tax Cocktails

In which I post the fourth of my experiments with a winter cocktail, all in the name of my monthly missions (#32).

These cocktails are very similar, so I’m presenting them at once. From the left, we have the Income Tax Cocktail and the Bronx Cocktail. I’ve made these a couple of times now. I think they are yummy, but orange juice doesn’t hit the right notes for a winter cocktail for me. Maybe they are more fending-off-winter-cold cocktails? At any rate, the recipes:

Bronx Cocktail
2 oz. gin
1 oz. orange juice
1/2 oz. sweet vermouth
1/2 oz. dry vermouth

Pour all ingredients into a cocktail shaker filled with ice.  Shake, then strain into a glass.

Income Tax Cocktail
Add a dash of bitters to the Bronx Cocktail.

I prefer mine without the bitters, the hubs likes his with. Give them a try and let me know what you think!
