1. Bloody Mary

A Bloody Mary is a quintessential breakfast drink. Whether you prefer it extra spicy or no spice at all, a flavorful option for this tomato juice drink is to add pickle juice. The addition of dill pickle juice adds a wonderful briny flavor. The next time you want to whip up this appetizing cocktail, grab your favorite vodka, Bloody Mary mix, and pickle juice.

2. Dill Pickle Martini

Skip the olive juice and enjoy your next dirty martini with dill pickle juice. It’s an unexpectedly enjoyable pickle juice cocktail. Take a good quality vodka, dill pickle juice, and add to a shaker filled with ice. Shake then strain into your chilled martini glasses. Voila, a fabulous twist on a dirty martini.  

3. Pickle Juice Whiskey Sour

Whiskey sours are a classic cocktail that gets an exciting, fun makeover with pickle juice. This recipe uses dill pickle juice and lemon instead of a sour mix. The tart mix added to the whiskey creates a refreshing, briny cocktail that is a palate-pleasing delight. Garnish with small dill pickles, and a lemon or lime wedge.

4. Pickled Caesar Cocktail

Similar to a Bloody Mary, the Caesar is a briny cocktail using clamato juice. It gives the cocktail a wonderful umami taste. A pickled Caesar takes this classic cocktail up a few notches with the addition of dill pickle juice. The dill pickle juice and clamato create a tasteful libation that isn’t overly salty. So, get your favorite vodka and try this pickle juice cocktail that is bursting with craveable flavors. 

5. Pickleback

A pickleback shot is a shot of pickle juice taken after a shot of alcohol, usually whiskey. This trend has been around for decades and you’d be surprised at how delicious it is. The tart and briny flavor of the pickle juice complements the whisky flavors. It’s a unique combination that will delight your senses and please your taste buds. 

6. Pickle Juice Tequila Shot

Tequila and pickle juice go amazingly well together. Simply take an ounce each of dill pickle juice and tequila and pour over ice in a glass or shaker. Shake, then strain into a glass and take your shot. The salt in the pickle brine complements the tequila. It’s especially good with a salted rim. 

7. Pickleback Cocktail

This fun recipe takes the pickleback shot and turns it into a lovely cocktail. With the addition of lime juice and simple syrup, this pickle juice cocktail is a tasty beverage to enjoy. It’s a briny cocktail with a little zing to it, yet balanced in flavors with the sweetness of the simple syrup. Flavorful, delicious, and a superb pickle juice drink. 

8. Vodka Pickle Shot

Similar to the martini, this is a simple two ingredient shot with pickle juice and vodka. Try rimming the shot glass with Tejin, salt, or a combination of celery salt and chili powder for added flavor.
