So the other day we gave the instructions for your basic Dirty Martini, which of course is a Martini, Gin or Vodka with olive brine and an olive in the mix. And at the end we mentioned how personal cocktail. We stand by all of those claims and I’m sure there is someone out there who is asking about other “fruit” to be substituted. Absolutely, but that doesn’t make it a classic dirty martini. For instance The Gibson.
3 parts Vodka or Gin
1 Part Dry Vermouth
Light splash of Cocktail Onion Brine
So, a Gibson is a twist on the Dirty Martini, but with Cocktail Onions. In our efforts to educate and inform on the full cocktail lexicon, it seems every cocktail has its own name, even if its only the slightest bit different than some thing very similar.
Sadly, today I don’t have any jokes about Joseph Stalin.
