I agree, surprisingly delicious! If you love pickles, you will love this drink. When I shared this with followers there was some negativity, but this is not that far off from the dirty martini. Definitely garnish with a couple pickle slices. :) I used home canned pickle slices. Will definitely have it again! My motto: Don't knock it til you've tried it. Read More

i guess the key here is of course the dill pickle juice i tried both ways with actual pickle juice from a nice home made preserve pickles and the one you just buy from your local liquor store let me tell in my personal experience the formal was awesome but the latter i couldn't drink it was really salty and just lacked the nice flavor so i guess try it both ways then decide.

As others have stated, the success of this depends on the pickle juice yo use. I've used Claussen whole pickles/juice with the most success. Steer clear of any of the green colored pickle juices as they are just not right for this drink. I also make sure to put a couple of the pickle rounds in the bottom of the glass as well. Read More

As I was saying. I followed the recipe to the T. I loved it as is. I have a few suggestions. 1. If you do not “love” (and I do mean “love”) pickle juice, do not make this drink. 2. Use a good quality vodka. It is a martini mind you. Bottom shelf/Plastic bottle vodka and pickle juice will hurt. I used Ciroc. Next time, I will use Grey Goose. I think that would be perfect. 3. If you are a light weight when it comes to vodka, decrease the ratio of pickle juice to vodka. Instead of 1 to 4, try 1 to 2. Otherwise, enjoy! Read More
