The Story Behind The Dorsey Gibson

This Martini variation is made with Belvedere’s Single Estate Rye: Smogóry Forest. This vodka is very robust and savory, so it pairs well with the saline profile of fino sherry. A pinch of salt and a cocktail onion further enhance the cocktail’s saltiness. It’s a great variation for anyone interested in branching out from Dirty Martinis.


  • 2 1/4 ounces Belvedere Smogary Forest
  • 3/4 ounces fino sherry
  • Small pinch salt


  1. Combine all ingredients into a mixing glass with ice, stir, and strain into a chilled coupe
  2. Garnish with a cocktail onion
