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.

An awesome cocktail app with curated recipes

I'm shocked that there are no reviews listed for this app. I found it on reddit's cocktails forum. The drink list in this app is much shorter than in many of the other apps I've seen, but the quality and reliability of the recipes is much much higher. These are more like the drinks you would get at a good mixology bar instead of the drink equivalent of your aunt's jello fruit mold that people just "love." I much prefer a list of cocktails that are reliable, good and repeatable than a huge pile of garbage recipes. This app is great and delivers great, reliable cocktails.
