A Bijou is a classic cocktail and is often referred to as one of the first cocktails made with gin, red vermouth, and Chartreuse Verte. The ingredients are usually mixed in a 1:1:1 ratio, then shaken with ice and poured into a cocktail glass. The presentation is often adorned with an orange or lemon as a garnish and a maraschino cherry. The name "Bijou" means "jewel" in French and refers to the colors of the cocktail, which are meant to resemble gemstones.
