The Bronx origins are unclear, as with other cocktails. Some sources clearly point New York, while others think it?s from somewhere else. For example, some attribute it to Joseph S. Sormani, a restaurant owner of a restaurant in the Bronx, who invented or discovered it.
Some versions suggest that the origin is a bartender of the skyscrapers city which produced a somewhat different combination because a customer so requested so. In that case, the name would come from the zoo city name, Bronx. The Bronx was very popular in the twentieth century and it was really highly demanded in the United States.
