A trend that seems practically made for St. Patrick’s Day is the Pickle Back — a shot of Irish whiskey followed with a shot of pickle juice. It may sound strange, but it’s a phenomenon that’s hitting New York hot spots like the Breslin and the Randolph and making national news and getting attention.
And you know what? It actually is pretty amazing! I tried it with some Jameson and Krugerman Frischgurkens and the flavors really complemented each other.
So if you don’t see this at your favorite St. Paddy’s Day pub, you may want to try it at home.
