Gibson Gin Dry Vermouth Shaken Cocktail

Considered a cousin of the Martini, the Gibson distinguishes itself with the use of an onion as a garnish instead of an olive. Variations of it can also be found with vodka replacing gin or a citrus twist instead of an onion. While its origin is debated, it is believed that it was first created by a businessman who wanted to stay sober while at the proverbial three-martini lunches with his clients. He asked the bartender to serve him cold water in a glass with an onion so he would be able to identify his drink from the others with their olives.
