To help us get in the jolly spirit, today's cocktail on our Crimbo Calendar is incredibly festive with tasty bold trimmings to match, created at this bar in London which boasts a tasteful 1920s decor, and takes it's name from the famous gin martini.
The Gibson in London present their Christmas cocktail.
