    Re: Bourbon with a Pickle Back

    I mean, i do enjoy Dill Pickle chips as a snack while having a drink....but not sure i could chug the juice. At the very least i'd have nobody but myself to blame in the morning.

    But the electrolytes in the pickle brine are GOOD for you. Actually may help w the hangover symptoms.

    wasnt there the story of some pro ball player a year or two ago who said his secret to endurance was pickle juice?

    Re: Bourbon with a Pickle Back

    Years ago UGA football coach Jim Donnan (before he was organizing ponzi schemes) would have players drink pickle juice to avoid cramps.

    Re: Bourbon with a Pickle Back

    Nolan Ryan used to soak the fingers on his pitching hand in pickle juice to speed the healing of, and also help prevent, blisters. An affliction that is a nightmare for a baseball pitcher.

    The eagles under Andy Reid all drank it before opening day in 100 degree Dallas. They won and said it helped.

    Re: Bourbon with a Pickle Back

    Ok, tried this today with OGD114 and enjoyed it more then with the Jamesons, I was still able to have some of the whiskey flavor, I am attributing this to the higher proof. Also tried a shot of half OGD114 and half pickle juice but did not care for this that much, prefer to do the whiskey with the pickle shot after.

    Best regards, Tony
