Know your onions

Vino’s Cocktail Hour continues on Thursday when we’ll be preparing delicious Gibsons, a tasty Martini cocktail combining Plymouth Gin, Dolin dry vermouth… and an onion. This variation is believed to have been invented by American graphic artist Charles Dana Gibson, who simply substituted the Martini’s traditional olive garnish with a pickled onion, although numerous theories abound. Whatever its origins, you can try this classic cocktail yourself this Thursday from 5:30pm!
