Bijou Cocktail Recipe

Bijou Cocktail

Bijou is a french term meaning “jewel,” and the jewel of this drink is the emerald that is Green Chartreuse.  Made of 130 herbs and spices, Chartreuse has a distinct flavor that gives this cocktail an aromatic, dry nose that is balanced by the sweetness of Plymouth Gin and orange bitters. You may have noticed the Bijou popping up on cocktail menus everywhere, and for good reason.
