Not everyone likes cocktail onions. I do. They’re not included in our starter bar, but for ten bucks you can get a small jar that will last a very long time whether you use them or not.
By the way, be careful ordering a Gibson in a bar or restaurant; more than once I have been served a Gimlet.
And unless specifically requested, use only one onion. It’s a garnish, not a snack!
Here’s my recipe:
- 2 oz Plymouth Gin
- 1/2 oz Noilly Prat Dry Vermouth
- Cocktail Onion garnish
Shake or stir the ingredients; serve in a Martini glass and spike the onion with a garnish pick.
