Cocktail Recipes Using a Classic Summer Essential

by 1-877-SPIRITS.COM 16. August 2011 09:51

Try something new at your BBQs and summer parties with cocktail recipes that call for pickle juice. It sounds odd, but pickle juice really pairs well with some types of liquor and also keeps you hydrated, so drink up! These concoctions are great complements for burgers, hot dogs, grilled chicken and much more. 

                             Bushmills Irish Whiskey Pickle Back Shooter
The pickle juice tames down the burning sensation from the Irish whiskey for a surprisingly smooth finish.

Simply pour Bushmills Irish Whiskey or your favorite Irish whiskey into a shot glass. Pour your choice of pickle juice into another shot glass. Shoot the Bushmills Irish Whiskey followed by the pickle back. 

                            Grey Goose Vodka – Dirty Pickle Martini
The Dirty Pickle Martini is a uniquely refreshing version of the traditional dirty martini with olives.

Mix 8 oz. Grey Goose Vodka, 1/2 tsp. Martini® Extra Dry Vermouth and 1 tbsp. dill pickle juice with ice in a shaker and shake vigorously. Strain into 2 chilled martini glasses; garnish with 2 dill pickle spears.

These easy-to-make cocktails are unique and brilliant ideas to serve at a last minute birthday party, housewarming, bridal shower or any other summer party.

Can I make a suggestion?  I think youve got something good here.  But what if you added a couple links to a page that backs up what youre saying?  Or maybe you could give us something to look at, something that would connect what youre saying to something tangible?  Just a suggestion.

Thanks for your suggestion! We have an image of what a pickle back shot looks like on our Facebook page here:

Have you tried any pickle cocktails? They’re an interesting deviation from the norm, but very good!
