The Bijou is a strong, herbaceous and decadent cocktail, which gets its name from the french word for jewel.

It’s great to batch for your Bastille Day soiree, because all of the ingredients are shelf stable, so all you need to do at party time is measure three ounces over ice, stir and strain, or make them three-at-a-time with a 1-cup ladle.

Bijou

1 ounce plymouth gin
1 ounce sweet vermouth
1 ounce green Chartreuse
2 dashes orange bitters

No garnish; that would be totally bourgeois… or would it be gauche?
