Since today is National Irish Coffee Day, I wanted to post something about Whiskey! Well, I don't know if you have ever tried this, but this cocktail is "a little bit like drinking a Big Mac- smokey and savory in the best possible way!'
The pickleback began life in Philadelphia where a shot of Irish whiskey was "chased" with a shot of pickle juice, to neutralize the heat of the alcohol. The trend spread to New York and then London. We were producing so much pickle juice as a byproduct of all the pickles we used at Pitt Cue Co., that it made sense to re-use it for something else, and so the pickleback became our signature drink.
