Picklebacks

August 14, 2013


Author Notes: The first time I took a pickleback shot, the brine came from a Costco-sized jar of generic brine and the whiskey was one step up from a plastic bottle. You could make this classier by using artisanal pickles and small-batch whiskey. Or you could not.Marian Bull

Tried this tonight with my homemade pickles and like them better with vodka-I also reuse my pickle juice per Food52 and add red onion, red/yellow pepper strips and Romaine "stalks"-so good. However, I had made pickled cherries last summer and I liked that very much with the bourbon-but I will buy more pickles to try it again!

Bourbon with a Homemade Caraway Pickle juice chaser. Delicious, and I don't usually like bourbon!
