08 Oct The 5 Pickle Juice Cocktails That’ll Convince You to Save Those Empty Jars
You might be wondering about pickle juice cocktails, and if so, you’re not alone. Pickle juice is being feted everywhere as the new super food, and rightly so. Pickle juice contains vitamins and minerals, and because it’s a fermented food, it’s good for your gut. Plus it’s got a great salty taste, which makes pickle juice or pickle brine an excellent flavor addition to cocktails. You want to use it where the salt in the brine is either the focus of the drink or balances with the other flavors.
Mixing pickle juice with something like smoky scotch or sweet rum might not work so well. But replacing olives with pickles in a martini is a winning idea. If you’re into creating your own ingredients for your cocktail bar, pickles are a good place to start. You can use the juice straight, use the pickles themselves, infuse liquor with pickles, or create things like pickle salt to use on the rim of your cocktail glasses.
