Ti’ Bijou

This twist on the Bijou cocktail was created by Shannon Mustipher, the head bartender at Glady’s in Brooklyn. She pairs Haitian rhum agricole and London dry gin for a drink that’s equal parts earthy, bracing and herbaceous.

This recipe originally appeared as part of “This New York Bartender Thinks You Should Drink More Rum.”
