Pickles and booze are an unexpected dynamic duo. Just look to the Pickleback shot or gherkin-garnished Martini for proof. But sometimes breaking out the bottles, the pickle jar and the shot glasses or mixing glass just seems like too much effort. So, to more quickly and efficiently deliver that harmonious duet of brine and booze, we decided to skip the whole “cocktail” thing and make spiked pickles.
We made three different variations: funky-fruity, vodka-spiked Koolickles (Kool-Aid-spiked pickles), spicy, tequila-spiked pickles and an edible take on the classic Pickleback. Try one, two or all three at your next happy hour, or take them on the go for a picnic-perfect, noshable cocktail.
