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.

Get the App

The Cocktail Party app puts this drink – and hundreds more – in your pocket, and tells you what you can make from the ingredients you have at home. It's the best $3.99 you'll ever spend on a drink.

Terrific Design!

Absolutely love this app. Gives a great visual representation of the ingredients and the user interface is well designed. Been using it to learn how to make cocktails, the descriptions are great about the drinks. As a novice barman, I love that I am learning the origin of the drink and alternative ways to make the drink. Be prepared to have a wide range of alcohol at you disposal! I can make heaps of drinks with the decent home collection I have, but seeing all the recipes what I could make gets me excited! Highly recommended, everyone loves the person who makes excellent drinks!
