#DOTW: Pickle Juice Whiskey Sour

I love pickles, I love Bulleit Bourbon. I wasn’t sure if I would like it together, but you know what? It’s pretty good! Lately I’ve been hearing about people doing shots with pickle juice back, I got very curious, and this cocktail is the result of my booze and pickle juice research. Don’t get it twisted, it’s not your average Vodka Cranberry, and some of you might scoff at this, but it’s what the kids do these days, and they’re definitely on to something. I like it!



What you’ll need:

  • 3 oz Bulleit Bourbon (or quality Bourbon of your choice)
  • 1 oz dill pickle juice
  • juice of half a lemon
  • Old Bay seasoning for rim
  • Cornichons for garnish
  • lemon slices for garnish

Combine Bourbon, pickle juice, and lemon juice in a cocktail shaker with ice. Shake well. Wet the rim with lemon juice and dip into Old Bay seasoning. Fill with ice and strain the drink into the glass. Garnish with a lemon slice and a Cornichon.

Hello there, fellow foodies! My name is Erica, I was born and raised in Germany, and moved to the US, New York City to be exact, in July of 1987. I have worked most of my time here in the Big Apple as a bartender, but my true love is food. I cook just about every day, I search for good food everywhere, and pretty much always find it. I don't consider myself a food critic, I don't have the culinary background for that kind of expertise. I do however know good food, good chefs and good restaurants. I report back about my culinary adventures, and I choose to leave out my unsatisfactory experiences. We have enough negativity in our daily lives, I don't want to add to that. All the recipes in my FROM MY KITCHEN and DOTW blogs are cooked and prepared by me. All pictures are taken by me. I don't always eat everything you see in my pictures, but you bet your buns, I do try everything. Last but not least, you should know that I am a huge Top Chef fan. I have never missed an episode of the Bravo TV show. I have at this point visited almost 20 restaurants run by Top Chef contestants, and I'm continuously impressed by their skill, drive and passion. So I will continue to seek them out, and I hope you join me in my journey!
