A pickle shot to toast the unofficial goodbye to summer 2014! Heard this one? Guy walks into a bar and orders a shot of whiskey followed by a chaser of pickle juice. Except, it’s no joke. The lip-puckering combination, called a pickle back, is morphing from insider’s secret to trendy drink.
Originally created at Brooklyn’s Bushwick Country Club, the Pickle Back has developed a cult following. Particularly popular in New York, this combination adds a twist to your basic shot of whiskey. Raise your glass, toast the Irish and then chase that whiskey burn with a pickle brine back.
The Pickle Back recipe:
1 ounce shot of Jameson or you favorite Irish whiskey
1 ounce shot of pickle brine
Garnish with a pickle (optional)
