Pineapple Bronx

August 23, 2013 (Day 106) – Pineapple Bronx

It seems to surprise many people that exotic fruits such as pineapple were featured so prominently in pre-prohibition cocktails. However, as more and more people became flush with money, access to these fruits became easier, not to mention the status it instilled in those who could fork out the dough. The Pineapple Bronx is one drink among many that takes standard cocktails and simply adds fresh pineapple juice, completely changing the tipples that had become so popular in years past.

  • 1 oz dry gin
  • 1 oz French (dry) vermouth
  • 1 oz fresh pineapple juice

Combine the ingredients in a cocktail shaker filled with crushed ice. Shake heartily. We usually are anti-gin-shaking, but if you’re using fruit juices you really want to shake the crap out of these cocktails.
