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 give it a shot. 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.
Every summer we go 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.
What better way to fully enjoy the fruits of you labor than by mixing up a drink made with homemade ingredients. Moonshine and pickle juice doesn't seem like it'd be a great combination, as it turns out, the pickleback ain't too bad. So head to the store and pick up your favorite kind of white whiskey, grab that old jar of pickles from the fridge, and get ready for a good time...
Drinking one right now. Hot damn!
This sounds so good….
Pickle juice and shine is my favorite!!!
