While many people are creating cocktails at home, there is something powerful about recreating that special cocktail you once enjoyed at a bar and putting a spin on it.
I recently started drinking the Gibson cocktail on a regular basis, as I visited the Gibson bar in Singapore back in March 2019. I forgot how much I love this cocktail!
The Gibson is essentially a martini with a pickled onion garnish, and how could you not just love the pickled onion garnish?
I couldn’t just stop there, as I decided to top this martini with champagne. It may be a bit extra, but in 2021, taking your cocktails to the next level is a requirement.
