Nice one, Robert.  I’ve never been too familiar with this drink, and it looks like it’s right up my alley, especially if I tinkered with the ratios in the original.

Any chance of an RSS feed for this blog?

And the drink is included in Johnson’s 1900 book.  I looked it up this morning.
Bijou Cocktail
(Use a large bar glass)
3/4 glass filled with shaved ice;
1/3 wine glass chartreuse (green);
1/3 wine glass vermouth (Italian);
1/3 wine glass Plymouth gin;
1 dash or orange bitters.
Mix well with a spoon, strain into a cocktail glass; add a cherry or a medium-size olive, squeeze a piece of lemon peel on top and serve.
