Old Hagbech Bronx

I'm fond of the odd cocktail, Negroni is one of my favourite martinis, but here is another favourite that uses Antica Formula, in my opinion the best of all sweet vermouth available. Here is my version of this classic cocktail.

You will need,
60ml of gin, my favourite is Plymouth
30ml of Antica Formula, sweet vermouth
20ml of Noilly Prat extra dry vermouth
30ml of freshly squeezed orange juice.
3 or 4 ice cubes

Place all the ingredients in a large glass and stir for 1 minute, I'm a stirrer rather than a shaker, though I'm an admirer of their furniture, strain into a cocktail glass and enjoy.

A Bronx is a perfect drink to enjoy with marcona almonds.
A Bronx is usually made with dry vermouth rather than the extra dry Noilly Prat but I prefer the lack of sweetness, hence my fondness for Negroni.


  1. I would love to have some Old Hagbech Bronx this weekend :-)
