Hemingway, super lush, enjoyed these a lot. He wanted them in frozen shot version. I prefer a more gentle version, it comes in a glass and is larger than a shot.
1 measure Dry Vermouth
3 measure Gin – I prefer Baltimore Long Shot
1 or 2 dashes Orange Bitters
Stir well. Strain into a cocktail glass. Add Olive.
For a Gibson, forget the olive. Use a small cocktail onion.
