Spicy Whiskey Pickle

"Where are all the pickleback shot lovers at?"

Pickleback shots originated from The Bushwick Country Club bar in Williamsburg, Brooklyn in 2006. This cocktail is based off this popular shot, but end result tastes similar to a whiskey sour, but less sweet, more savory, and tangy. If you are not a fan of whiskey you can use vodka or tequila instead.

Recommended glassware: Highball glass
