The glorious pickleback shot.

Nothing chases a shot of whiskey quite as well as pickle juice. You don’t need it, but it just tastes fuckin’ awesome. Oh, and pickle juice is hydrating…

Is there anything better than a few big swigs of pickle juice the morning of a hangover? It helps with upset stomach, re-hydration, nasty burps, etc. Getchya self a big ol’ glass.

7. Marinades and other food stuff.

The options are endless. Basically, any time you might use vinegar, you can use pickle juice. This goes for dressings, marinades, pickling other stuff, poached fish, potato salad, deviled eggs, and so on and so on.

8. Go poop.

A glass of pickle juice should loosen you right up.

9. Alcoholic Beverages.

Did I mention booze?

Pickle juice goes great in a Bloody Mary, a pickle version of a Dirty Martini, and of course, the great pickleback shot.
