Combine the popular shot and chaser combo for a fun pickle juice cocktail! Garnish your pickleback cocktail with fresh dill and pickle spear.
Where are my pickle lovers at?! Y’all are going to love this fun and easy homemade cocktail.
One of my favorite shots of all time is a pickleback. It’s simply a shot of whiskey followed by pickle juice.
This pickle juice whiskey sour takes it to the next level. It’s unexpected but somehow works brilliantly. Don’t knock it till you try it!
Easy Pickleback Recipe
Pickleback shots originated from The Bushwick Country Club bar in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. Reggie Cunningham is thought to be the originator of the popular shot back in 2006.
Here’s what you’ll need to make my pickleback inspired cocktail at home:
- Whiskey or bourbon
- Pickle juice
- Fresh lime juice
- Simple syrup
- Cocktail mixing glass
- Cocktail glasses
To make this simple cocktail, stir the whiskey, lime juice, and simple syrup together in your mixing glass. Pour into 2 cocktail glasses filled with ice. Garnish, if desired, and serve.
