Pickle Shots Recipe

You have to try the pickle shot if you enjoy whiskey and a drink with a unique flavor. There’s nothing complicated about this drink the shot of Jameson is followed by a shot of pickle juice, and it is, without a doubt, one of the most popular shots in bars worldwide. Pickled brine is nothing new when it comes to chasing whiskey The ‘hair of the dog’ remedy is one of the oldest hangover remedies. However, it wasn’t until 2006 that Brooklyn bartender Reggie Cunningham introduced the shot at Bushwick Country Club to its now-renowned name. As soon as that happened, the drink became a smash and spread across America. I promise to go the extra mile. Even though the combination seems odd, it turns out to be quite effective. It’s a drink you should try even if you are not a fan of pickles because of the rich, umami flavor it delivers that you won’t find in any other beverage. Additionally, you do not have to go to the bar to get a drink. There is nothing stopping you from trying the pickleback at home, even if you have a jar of Vlasic pickles in your refrigerator.
