Marianna’s Martini of the month

by Archives January 17, 2001
Just because the holidays are over does not mean the festivities must come to an end. It’s a whole new year full of changes, possibilities and of course new martinis. My first shaky shaky of this year is a classic martini called a Gibson. It is a tribute to the original martini usually seen in the hands of Hollywood movie stars. Basically, a Gibson is a dry martini with a cocktail onion instead of an olive or lemon peel. This martini is a great way to deviate from the usual mixed drinks and beer. The Gibson has spunk and is sure to give you a ‘zing!’


3-4 cubes ice
3 parts Gin
1 part Dry Vermouth
1-2 cocktail onions – to be added post shaking (can sub stitute green olives if preferred)

Combine all ingredients (in the above order) in a martini shaker and….

*Pour in shnazzy martini glasses and enjoy!
