Bijou Cocktail Rezept

The Bijou cocktail was first mentioned in Harry Johnson's 1900 book "New and Improved Bartender's Manual" and was a popular drink during the cocktail's heyday in the early 20th century.

The drink is sometimes referred to as a "triple" cocktail because it combines three different spirits: Gin, Vermouth (or vermouth) and Chartreuse.

Ingredients (for 2 servings):

  • 6 cl gin
  • 6 cl sweet vermouth
  • 6 cl green Chartreuse

  1. Fill the cocktail shaker with ice.
  2. Pour the gin, sweet vermouth, green Chartreuse and orange bitters into the shaker. Shake vigorously for 10-15 seconds.

    Garnish each with a lemon zest.

Für mich geht nichts über das Entdecken kleiner Manufakturen. Ob das der Micro Craft Brauer aus Bayern oder die sächsische Brennerei ist, die es bereits seit Jahrzehnten gibt - hauptsache klein, regional verwurzelt und mit Sinn für's Handwerk!
