The Bijou Cocktail is very simple and quick to prepare. If you want to prepare this gin cocktail, add the gin, vermouth and green Chartreuse one after the other in a mixing glass. It is best to measure out the spirits with a jigger. Now add a few ice cubes to the mixing glass and stir everything with a bar spoon for about 20-25 seconds. Strain the drink through a sieve into a tumbler filled with ice and garnish with an orange zest. And that’s it. You can prepare and enjoy a Bijou Cocktail so quickly and easily.
