The Jameson Pickelback
American bartenders are serving up the hottest most fashionable drink in the US today - the 'Pickleback'. We became aware of the Pickelback in South Africa after it was reported in our press that Justin Timberlake ordered this two shot drink - one shot Jameson Irish Whiskey & one shot pickle juice.
'This drink is both surprising and tasty. Some cutting edge bars have begun to create their own signature pickle juice to pair with Jameson. Portland bartender Jacob Grier offers up pickled nectarine juice as his accompaniment.' extracted from About.com.Jameson Irish Whiskey and pickle juice is a delicious combination. There is no substitute for Jameson Irish Whiskey when it comes to the Pickleback. Jameson's slightly wood sweet taste combines fantastically with the pickle juice, leaving a rich, umami flavour on the palate. Do not accept a Pickleback with anything other than Jameson as substitutes are disappointing.
At the rate the Jameson Pickleback is spreading in popularity across the US States, it won't be long before it reaches South Africa shores. Like the US it may even challenge major shooters like Jagermeister or Ramazzotti Amaro - it may even challenge the Kamakazi cocktails.
