I asked you, gentle readers, for ideas on what to do with the rest of my pickled ramps, and you gave them to me (thank you!). One of the suggestions–and how the hell did it never occur to me to do this? –was make a COCKTAIL!
Make a Martini with the Vodka or Gin of your choice
Garnish with a ramp or two.
….and that’s it.
Seriously, a Gibson is nothing more than a Martini with a pickled onion garnish in lieu of an olive or a twist.
This is a very, very, yummy drink. And the ramp is an excellent sub for a regular ol’ cocktail onion because the pickled ramps are slightly sweet.
Mmmmmmmmm. Watch out! These go down easy.
And a word of warning: don’t drink them if you’re planning on making out with someone later. Because you will have some monster ramp breath afterwards.
Making out is not a problem for me right now–in that I am not doing any of that at all.
So I guess I’m saying that making out is a problem for me right now….?
Now, after the jump is an excellent infographic to give you the low down on the ins and outs of the Martini, via FIX.COM
Highly informative. You’ll be an expert!
Happy mixing, kittens!
