Classic bar shot – The pickleback is for all you pickleheads who love everything pickles.

The pickleback is a shot of whiskey with a chaser of pickle juice. Pickle juice is like nature’s gatoraide, loaded with electrolytes to help with dehydration. Alcohol is a diaretic (makes you dehydrated) so pickle juice is a natural way to restore water. It also has a variety of antioxidants and Vitamin C and E.
