Cocktail Recipe Recipe

Gibson

2 oz. Gin or Vodka, Dash of Dry Vermouth*

Stir with ice & Strain into a chilled cocktail glass

Garnish with skewered cocktail onions

*Omit vermouth if ordered dry

 

Put two cocktail onions on a skewer in a Martini and you have a Gibson, which was named after Charles Gibson creator of the corseted Gibson Girls. Although the original drink did not call for the the onions, Gary Regan, author of The Martini Companion believes these were added in the 30's by a bartender at NY's Player's Club, for Gibson himself.
