I love a good dry martini, and my father preferred a Gibson. Because I was an obedient daughter, I came to love a Gibson, too, and switched, always ordering a Gibson just like he did, with an extra cocktail pick skewered with pickled cocktail onions. When I tasted the pickled crosnes, I knew I had to make a pickled crosne martini. I prefer mine stirred, icy cold, and dry. Plan ahead and put the gin and a martini glass in the freezer.
