Pickle Back Rears its Head Again

pickleback.jpgA little bit ago we told you about the Jameson's Pickle Back, and expressed our nervousness about the shot. We have been overwhelmed by reader response since the story ran, telling us we need to sack up and give it a try. We will, but we'll plan on still waiting until St. Patrick's Day before we take our Pickle Back virginity, so to speak. What pushed us over the edge to wanting to try it, you might ask?

It was partially the parade of drunks who emailed us with sentiments along the lines of "DUDE IT'S AWESOME!!1!" but the real convincer was the article we found today from Jason Wilson at the Washington Post. He included all sorts of great info about Irish whiskey, but here was the kicker for us about the Pickle Back:

As a pairing, that might sound less than promising, but here's the surprise: A Pickleback is simply awesome. Brine and whiskey make one of those mysteriously wonderful combinations, and it doesn't hurt that pickle juice is second to none in preventing dehydration (thus helping to stave off the post-St. Paddy's Day hangover).
Avoiding hangovers FTW!
