One exciting night in the Bronx with Minnehaha and Maurice

I ask you. Find the differences among:

One Exciting Night

1 part gin
1 part dry vermouth
1 part sweet vermouth
1 dash orange juice

Bronx (sweet)

2 parts gin
1 part dry vermouth
1 part sweet vermouth
Juice of 1/4 orange

Minnehaha

2 parts gin
1 part dry vermouth
1 part sweet vermouth
juice of 1/4 orange

Maurice 

1 parts gin
1 part dry vermouth
1 part sweet vermouth
juice of 1/4 orange
1 dash bitters -- use orange bitters, and it becomes the Maurice Chevalier

All these tipples are taken from our Calvert Party Encylcopedia, direct from the Mad Men era (1961). The note about the Maurice Chevalier comes from Charles Schumann's American Bar.

Bon weekend -- if you're not there, imagine yourself at the Lake. Like so.
