The challenge, and indeed the opportunity, with the Bronx is to strike the perfect balance between the botanical flavours of the gin, vermouths and zesty fresh orange. Classically, where the vermouths are concerned that's between rosso (sweet) and dry vermouth. However, I find it better with bianco in place of dry vermouth. If you prefer a less orangy, more punchy Bronx, then you may prefer to cut the orange juice back to 15ml( ½oz).
