Use In Cocktails:

With “cocktail” in the name, you might have guessed that they are delicious in drinks. Use them as garnishes in your favorite cocktails. Instead of using a Martini Olive or a lemon twist, The Gibson Martini uses Cocktail Onions as a garnish to add a unique savory twist to a classic. In fact, the San Francisco Gibson Martini began to grow in popularity around the same time that Mezzetta began importing and selling them.  That can’t be a coincidence, right? If martinis are not your preference, these Cocktail Onions also pair perfectly as a garnish in a Bloody Mary.

Use In Cooking:

Did you know that pearl onions are close relatives of leeks? And they are more tender with a subtle tang than the common onion. This makes them a great addition to cook with. Add these flavorful, tender, pearly white onions to bring more flavor to your recipes. You can bring variety to your antipasti platters, chop them up to add texture to your meatballs, add them to stews, or use them to complete your pot roast. They also complement grilled fish perfectly!  See some of our favorite recipes to use these in below.
