As with most classic cocktails, the Gibson’s origin is a topic of debate. Was it an East Coast creation at New York’s Players Club for illustrator Charles Dana Gibson? Or a West Coast one at the Bohemian Club for W. D. K. Gibson? No matter—stir your preferred martini and garnish with a cocktail onion.

This recipe was featured as part of our DIY Home Bar photo gallery.

Instructions

Fill a cocktail shaker or pint glass two-thirds of the way with ice. Add gin or vodka and vermouth and stir with a cocktail spoon until chilled, about 30 seconds. Strain into a chilled cocktail glass and garnish with an onion or two.
