This cocktail gets its name from the French word for jewel, because its ingredients resemble sparkling gemstones. A combination of gin (diamonds), Chartreuse (emeralds), and sweet Italian vermouth (rubies), the Bijou can trace its roots back all the way to the late 1800s. We switched out the vermouth for our very own jewel, Mommenpop Seville Orange aperitif.
1.5 oz Mommenpop Seville Orange
.75 oz gin
.75 oz green chartreuse
2 dashes orange bitters
Combine all ingredients in a cocktail tin with 5-6 ice cubes.
Stir for 10-15 seconds.
Strain into a chilled coupe glass and garnish with a lemon twist.
