All hail the mighty Gibson

A Gibson!

For me a Vodka Martini is usually with olives, and a Gin Martini is for a lemon twist. In some circumstances, my pining for a cocktail onion leads me to smash down a Gibson, which is a Gin Martini with those little pearls of joy.

This is a good drink to order if you want to figure out if a bar knows their onions.

How To Make: Gibson


  • 50ml of Fine Gin
  • A dash of Dry Vermouth
  • Garnish with cocktail onions on a stick
  • Preferred glass would be a frosted Martini glass

Stir the gin and vermouth with ice in a cocktail mixing jug. Strain into a chilled Martini glass.

Garnish with cocktail onions, preferably on a bamboo stick.

Drink it fast while it's still frosty, preferably listening to Jazz music, and optimally in NYC with a guy named Angus Loten.
