The Bronx

The Bronx makes an appearance in Burke's Complete Cocktails and Drinking Recipes in 1934. In that book it was described as the third most popular drink in the world, after the martini and the Manhattan. It's fame was probably due to the fact that it was one of the first cocktails on the scene to use orange juice.
