    it has to be drinking in the dinner only

    Does a "traditional" gibson include bitters by default, or no?

    By traditional I mean, what am I most likely to get if I order a Gibson by name in most bars without specifying?

    I have been substituting Onion brine for Vermouth for over 50 years in a Tanqueray Gibson and have found that most customers preferred them that way. Never wash the onion.

    Thank you, Historender, for giving the actual history of this drink. How quickly we forget, and make up snobby stuff to replace it.

    I personally consider the brine of either olive or onion as part of the flavors of the drink.

    What I want to state here was more about the story behind this drink.
    Without any documented research only from my notes from mixoligy class at a famous international culinary school.
    The story goes Mr. Gibson was a Madison Ave. advertising man who was a tea toddle and he drank water disguised as a cocktail and the onion was an indicator to distinguish his beverage from the rest

  • ginmarsni posted 6 years ago

    ....As I do when substituting a Gibson for an In & Out Martini with lemon twist, does anyone wash the cocktail onion to keep the brine juice from ruining the taste of the gin........
