Don’t walk away, seriously! This works. If you like your drinks a little stronger, then this one is for you. No one in my family likes what basically amounts to drinking straight spirits, apart from me. So I got to enjoy this one all to myself. I was in one of those situations where everyone tried it, pulled a face, said it was nice but too strong and handed it back to me. So I got one compliment and that’s all I need.

This drink doesn’t taste like onions… much. It won’t make you smell like onions, is what I should have said. The pickle juice is a wonderful mixture of sour and sweet which works really well with the floral notes in the gin and balances out the dryness of the vermouth. Just give it a go and stop questioning me!

You will need:

2 Parts Gordon’s Gin

1  Part Dry Vermouth

1/2 shot of Pickled Onion Juice (just from the jar, trust me)

2 Pickled Onions (for garnish)

How to make:

  1. Fill your cocktail shaker with ice
  2. Pour in your spirits and the onion juice
  3. Make sure your Martini glass is nice and cold
  4. Strain your drink into your glass
  5. Drop in your garnish and away you go!

And just so that you know this isn’t an elaborate prank, here’s a picture of me thoroughly enjoying this drink
