The Gibson cocktail is a classic gin cocktail that’s sophisticated and simple: like a dry martini with an onion garnish instead!


  • 3 ounces (6 tablespoons) gin
  • 1/2 ounce (1 tablespoon) dry white vermouth
  • For the garnish: Cocktail onions


  1. Combine the gin and vermouth in a cocktail mixing glass (or any other type of glass). Fill the mixing glass with 1 handful ice and stir continuously for 30 seconds until very cold.
  2. Strain the drink into a cocktail or martini glass (purists chill the glass first). Garnish with cocktail onions.
