Behind the Bar: Hot Rye Bijou

Behind the Bar: Hot Rye Bijou

Bijou, meaning “jewel” in French, is a classic cocktail traditionally made with equal parts gin, sweet vermouth and green Chartreuse. This contemporary version, perfect for those last blustery winter days of snow and ice, can warm up anyone who has been in the harsh cold. Feel free to enjoy on a night during the last of Wisconsin’s snowfalls.

1 ounce rye whiskey

1 ounce sweet vermouth

1 ounce green Chartreuse

dash of bitters

orange twist

Mix all ingredients and heat. Be careful to not burn off alcohol while heating. Serve in mug and garnish with orange twist.
