Gibson

Gibson cocktail with gin and cocktail onions

This is just a Martini with a different garnish, so why come up with a whole new name for it? We think it should stand as a testament to Charlie Connolly, henceforth known as The Laziest Bartender Who Ever Lived. In the 1930s, a customer asked Connolly for “something different,” and this is what he made: a Martini with a cocktail onion, named after the customer (perhaps as an ironic scolding, for daring to order off the standard menu?) The cocktail onion really does add a certain something, though, so if you like Martinis you oughta give the Gibson a shot.

Ingredients

Instructions

Stir and strain into a chilled cocktail glass. Stick a few cocktail onions on a skewer and garnish the drink with it.
