The Bijou is a classic cocktail first introduced in France in the 1880s. The original recipe calls for chartreuse, but a current worldwide shortage of this bright green spirit has inspired us to devise ways of substituting for it. Turns out, Batch 22 is an excellent, more mellow stand-in; it has the herbal qualities of chartreuse, without the aggressive anise and fennel.
Combine in a mixing glass with ice:
1 oz. Batch 22
1 oz. London Dry Gin
1 oz. Sweet vermouth
3 dashes orange bitters
Stir to chill and strain into Nick & Nora glass, Garnish with orange peel.
