How to Make a Bijou Cocktail

How to Cocktail: Bijou

The Bijou is a robust, spirit-forward gem from the pre-Prohibition era. Learn how to make this twist on the classic gin cocktail from top bartender Jamie Gordon.



Add all ingredients to a mixing glass and fill with ice. Stir, and strain into a rocks glass over fresh ice. Garnish with an orange twist.

Note: The traditional Bijou recipe calls for equal parts gin, sweet vermouth and Green Chartreuse, plus a dash of orange bitters.
