The Bijou Cocktail, two ways 17 Feb 2009

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.
