Bijou Cocktail Riff: La Joya

Bijou cocktail riff

Mezcal brings new depth to the classic.

For this Bijou cocktail riff, The Standby‘s Joe Robinson reached for mezcal and PX sherry to take the classic in an extra-rich direction. “The deep fruit of the PX sherry stands up to the intensity of the mezcal, resulting in a smoky, medicinal, and hard-hitting cocktail,” Robinson says of the drink.


  • 1 1/2 oz. mezcal
  • 3/4 oz. green Chartreuse
  • 3/4 oz. PX sherry
  • 6 dashes Bittermens Hopped Grapefruit Bitters
  • Tools:mixing glass, barspoon
  • Glass:Nick and Nora


Combine all of the ingredients in a mixing glass, add ice, and stir. Strain into a chilled glass.
