Pickled Cocktail Onions

Pickled Cocktail Onions

This flavorsome — and relatively fast — recipe comes from Los Angeles-based bartender Gabriella Mlynarczyk. Pickled onions are the classic garnish for the Gibson cocktail, but if you love these briny, crunchy, little alliums as much as I do, you might find yourself tossing them into your gin and tonics and vodka and sodas, too (and adding them to cornichons and mustard as accoutrements for pâté).



    1. Step 1

      Stir together until sugar and salt dissolve before using. Add onions, brine and 2 tablespoons of pickling-spice blend to a heavy-bottomed pan. Bring to a boil, then remove from heat immediately. Pour onions and liquid into a sterilized Mason jar. Cover and store at room temperature for two days before using. Refrigerate after opening.
