Good moonshine doesn't need help from mixers, but we recently heard about a crazy drink made with pickle juice and hot sauce. Well, it's not normally made with hot sauce, but we couldn't resist adding some. It's called a pickleback, and it's pretty darn good.
1 part moonshine
1 part pickle juice
A couple drops of "O" face hot sauce.
Last summer we went a little crazy with food preservation. Countless evenings and weekends were spent canning, pickling, and freezing. Our goal was to make enough grub to sustain us through the entire winter and we have an entire deep freezer full of food to prove it. We also have an abundance of canned pickles, roasted tomatoes, and jam...oh, and moonshine...we've got a bit of that too!
What better way to fully enjoy the fruits of our labor than by mixing up a drink made entirely from homemade ingredients. Moonshine and pickle juice doesn't seem like it'd be a great combination, but what the hell, we figured we'd give it a shot. As it turns out, the pickleback ain't too bad.
