Bijou Cocktail

The Monkey and his Jewel

© Jochen Hirschfeld

In French, bijou means “jewel” – an appropriate name for this gem of a cocktail. Developed by Harry Johnson, according to legend the ingredients reflect the resplendent colors of three jewels – gin as a diamond, vermouth as a ruby and Chartreuse as an emerald. A true classic, this precious delicacy is one of the oldest cocktails. To make, combine 2 cl Monkey 47 Schwarzwald Dry Gin, 2 cl green Chartreuse, 2 cl red vermouth and a splash of orange bitters over ice. Stir and then strain into a coupette glass. A drink in which our Monkey feels right at home – after all, who doesn’t enjoy a bit of sparkle?
