GIBSON Martini with Hendrick's Gin

Updated: Jan 2, 2022

Gibson Martini with Hendrick's gin. Gibson, Martini's savory cousin, is a cocktail from the end of the 19th century, when a bartender made a Martini with a pickled onion instead of an olive, as requested by a San Francisco businessman Walter D.K. Gibson. In this episode, I made one from a parallel universe, using Hendrick's Orbium gin, dry vermouth, lemon bitters, and homemade pickled onions. All of that gives this drink an oddly exquisite taste. And I can humbly say this was the best Martini I have ever tried. So far.

Exquisite Gibson:

· 60 ml (2 oz) Hendrick's Orbium gin

· 10 ml (1/3 oz) dry vermouth

· dash of lemon bitters

· pickled shallot
