Yes You Can Re-Use Leftover Pickle Juice

Mr. Nag is fond of good quality pickles. I usually throw the brine down the sink when he's finished eating them but it seemed wasteful so I went to my good friend Google and found some uses for leftover pickle juice. This is one I wouldn't have thought of.

Make a “pickleback,” essentially a shot of pickle brine designed to follow a shot of (usually) not-so top shelf whiskey. The flavors are surprisingly simpatico, which explains why you’ll find the pickleback offered at many hipster and non-hipster drinking establishments.
If you're so inclined, listen to Nickleback when you're drinking it.

Funny that you mention this. I was kinda watching The Chew yesterday and one of the recipes used leftover pickle juice.

Thanks Jackie. You know what would go good with that? A pickleback.
