The jeans and white t-shirt of your cocktail wardrobe.Gather Journal Classic Gibson Cocktail
Two of TV’s most iconic glass ceiling-breakers, Mad Men’s Peggy Olson and Murphy Brown, were separated by decades, but they had much in common: confident, driven, unconcerned with people-pleasing, and reliant on smarts, not feminine wiles. Because they wouldn’t have the time or desire (or ingredients) to whip up something elaborate, we envisioned simple eggs accessorized with a tangy relish culled from those condiments lingering in the fridge—including cocktail onions, which Murphy still has on hand from her pre-Betty Ford days, and Peggy always has ready for a Gibson cocktail.
