Ti’ Bijou

This twist on the Bijou cocktail was created by Shannon Mustipher, the head bartender at Glady’s in Brooklyn. She pairs Haitian rhum agricole and London dry gin for a drink that’s equal parts earthy, bracing and herbaceous.

  • 1 oz Boukman botanical rhum agricole (or Barbancourt blanc)
  • 1/2 oz London dry gin
  • 1/2 oz Dolin blanc vermouth
  • 1/2 oz Chamomile tea syrup*
  • 1 pinch Salt
  • 2 drops Orange bitters
  • Garnish: Orange peel
  1. Rinse a rocks glass with absinthe, empty, then add 1 large ice cube, and stir until chilled.

  2. Pour the remaining ingredients into the glass.

  3. Garnish with an orange peel.
