12 Cocktails of Christmas | Cocktail 6: 505 GIBSON
On the sixth day of Christmas, 505 Spirits gave to me… the 505 Gibson! The most simple, effortless cocktail you can make… yet, so effectively delicious! And of course, we love supporting our friends at ABQ’s Nikle Spirits; their gin is just so, SO good.
If you’ve watched The Queen’s Gambit, you have seen Beth Harmon ordering this cocktail time and time again. She clearly knows her stuff when it comes to chess AND cocktails! The 505 Gibson is equal parts gin and dry vermouth, garnished with a pickled onion. Made with our Aristology White, it is out of this world.
Ashley Smith, one of our distillers has always HATED gin. Until the 505 Gibson. She came into work one day and said, "Guess what I bought a bottle of yesterday..." We guessed gin. We were right.
See recipe below.
