The Bijou, meaning “jewel” in french, was named for the three gem stone colored ingredients: gin for diamond, sweet vermouth for ruby, and green chartreuse for emerald. It was invented by Harry Johnson “the father of professional bartending,” dating back to the 1890’s.
The Tipperary is a riff on this cocktail for its use of sweet vermouth and green chartreuse.
