The Gibson Cocktail Recipe
The Gibson is a classic cocktail that is similar to a martini but with one key difference - it is garnished with a pickled onion instead of an olive. This simple twist gives the Gibson a unique and slightly tangy flavor that sets it apart from other cocktails.
To make a Gibson cocktail, you will need:
- Dry vermouth
- Pickled onions
Here is how to make a Gibson:
- Fill a mixing glass or shaker with ice.
- Add 2 ounces of gin and 1/2 ounce of dry vermouth.
- Stir the mixture for about 30 seconds to chill and dilute the cocktail.
- Strain the cocktail into a chilled martini glass.
- Garnish the cocktail with one or two pickled onions on a cocktail pick.
- Serve and enjoy!
The Gibson is a sophisticated and elegant cocktail that is perfect for those who enjoy a classic martini but want to try something a little different. The pickled onions add a burst of flavor that pairs well with the botanical notes of the gin and the dryness of the vermouth. Whether you're hosting a cocktail party or simply want to unwind after a long day, the Gibson is a timeless choice that is sure to impress.
