Gibson de Provence

A Gibson is essentially the same recipe as a martini. The garnish is an earthy pickled onion with a hint of acidity, instead of a briny olive. In our version we play up the flavor of the pickled onion by adding a bit of shallot infused red wine vinegar from France. The vinegar gives the cocktail a slight blush.
