If ever there was a cocktail with an interesting history it has to be the Bronx. While its origins are disputed, with some claiming it was invented in Philadelphia and subsequently brought to the Bronx and others claiming it was invented in Manhattan and dubbed the “Bronx” after the weird inhabitants of the Bronx zoo, one certain thing is that the founder of Alcoholics Anonymous says it was the first drink he ever had. This popular cocktail was ranked as the third best cocktail in the world in 1934 with the Martini coming in first and the Manhattan second.
