“[This drink was] inspired by the Bijou which I first found in the PDT book,” Jake Sutton.
30 ml (1 oz) gin (Half Moon Orchard, Sipsmith, or Uncle Val’s if you’re feeling freaky)
30 ml (1 oz) Suze
Stir over ice and strain into a chilled cocktail glass. Jake says that he usually skips the garnish, “but a lemon twist would probably be lovely”.
gaz sez: I’m breaking my own rule here by featuring a drink created by a non-bartender, but hey, that’s the beauty of being a somewhat benevolent dictator. I get to break the rules whenever I damned-well please, right? This drink runs right up the clock, and the clock can strike one, two, three, or eleven, but this baby’s staying exactly where she wants to be. Superb concept, Jake. And nicely executed. I love that you didn’t get tempted to over-think this. It’s absolutely perfect as is.
