    Re: Bourbon with a Pickle Back

    I have a couple of neighbors that bust out Picklebacks with Jameson. I cannot stand pickles in any form, so I typically just opt for the Jameson. However, they love them.

    Re: Bourbon with a Pickle Back

    Guys, this is the kind of stuff I made pledges do back in college. Just nasty.

    Re: Bourbon with a Pickle Back

    I decided to try this last night. Both as bourbon shot followed by pickle shot and mixed 50-50. I was surprised that it wasn't so bad. Mixed you cannot even taste the bourbon.

    Re: Bourbon with a Pickle Back

    My first memories of bars are the "what the hell" moment I had when I noticed that most all of them had very large jars of pickles and pickled eggs on them. I always thought that was the oddest thing. It wasn't just a bar, or two, but almost every bar of my youth in the south.

    I never quite got it....until now.

    Yeah, I'd re-up for it...
    Yikes! I should note that I have a number of Irish whiskies which I am officially declaring to be totally pickle free zones!

    Sheesh, like you wouldn't WANT to taste it...

    I did however pick up a lovely Knockeen Hills 120 proof poteen (the only poteen/poitin I can find in a store in town. Think Irish moonshine.) which you are welcome to pickle to your hearts content!

    That yella whiskey runnin' down my throat like honey dew vine water and I took another slash…

    The bars I frequented around Clemson had jars of pickled mountain oysters...you got a free beer if you ate one...

    Re: Bourbon with a Pickle Back

    My first try tonight seemed to line up with Joe's take - it completely wipes out the finish of the bourbon, but the aftertaste isn't like just shooting PJ - it is different (this is a guess on my part, I haven't tried this without the bourbon ) I'm curious how the next sip of bourbon would be (I mean, is this an awesome palate cleanser or what?) Need to have that lined up for next time. Now I didn't shoot my bourbon though - I sipped it like I normally would, but immediately shot the PJ after finishing my last sip. Is that what y'all did, or was this like college days with one shot/two shot in a few seconds?
