Author Notes

A cocktail from the Nineteenth century, pretty up thus a ways for contemporary tastes. Bijou is French for jewel because the three ingredients theoretically represented jewels: gin for diamonds, candy vermouth for rubies, Green Chartreuse for emeralds. Orderly! I fancy this drink nevertheless it is a ways more or less unheard of and intense and herbal. If the mix of gin and chartreuse is correct too herbaceous for you, that you just can moreover strive changing the gin with rye whiskey (which would in most cases produce the cocktail identified because the Greenpoint) or with Irish whiskey (to provide the drink identified because the Tipperary). —fiveandspice
