Hey Robert;  A late follow up but check out Jason Wilson’s column in the Washington Post today: http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2009/06/08/AR2009060803353.html?hpid=smartliving

Not only a nice piece of writing but also some great recipe ideas.

Robert, the Bijou is my favorite cocktail ever since reading about it in Jason Wilson’s spirits column in the Washington Post.  I tried the Ritz Bijou last week but it didn’t have the flavor of the original for me.
