I was in the liquor store & something seemed out of place. It was jars of dill pickles!

Upon further inspection it said they were pickled in shine! As some people know I enjoy the occasional Caesar cocktail . I've put what are called drunken beans in them before. They're spicy hot pickled green beans & they're great.

It turns out the dill pickles are to put in drinks or to eat with a shot of pickle shine. I'm not sure about this.

Has anyone tried these?

I don't need any $26 pickles!------- (says the guy who paid $20 for Luxardo cherries for his Old Fashioneds)
They look interesting, if you try them, let us know.

I've had moonshine cherries, and they are pretty good. The pickles??? If someone else buys I'll try one. Got talked into deep fried dill pickles once - won't do that again.

Oh man, love fried dill pickles! Better done as chips than spears but either way works. Needs a tasty sauce for dipping.

I like fried pickles & have made Atomic Cherries when I lived down East.

We got our shine in gallon molasses jugs.

You dump out all the juice in a jar of Marechino cherries & fill the jar back up with shine. Put it in a sock or tape up the jar & hide it on yourself a few months before Xmass.

I hope that I am never so hard up for a drink of any kind.
The drink in a glass and the pickles on a plate, please and thank you.

I do like little fruity bits marinated in dark rum and rye.
Raspberries in rye. Wait a few weeks, if you can.
I tried dark rum in cold coffee the other night. I could grow to like that.

I knew an older Mother & Daughter that made what they called Rum Pot in crocks before Christmas.

High proof rum & different fruits in season. Cherries, plums & berries steeped in rum.

They put it on cake & icecream. Dessert could be the start or end of the evening!

They used to heat up brandy & light it on fire. It wouldn't light one year so one of them got some Grappa in an old 7Up bottle & lit dessert & the tablecloth up pretty good!

What about the Bloody Mary's you guys have down there? It's an engineering feat to stack all that food on one drink.

A Caesar is a morning after breakfast drink for people having brunch. They come with a salted/spiced rim, tomato & clam juice, hot sauce & Worcester or Maggi sauce & a slice of lime and or lemon.

A Bloody Mary is breakfast & lunch. I've seen them with fried chicken & sliders pinned to them!

We used to go for brunch at a local historic pub. They had the Sea- Sar.   It was made in a 1 litre wine carafe with a half dozen fat prawns around the rim.

The brandy won't go unless everything is preheated to get a good alcohol evaporation going.
OP rum satisfies my impatience.

Except on my brother's black rum pudding with hard sauce.
If we have any manners at all, we sit and enjoy the flaming ritual that is has become.

I could do those, easy. Inhale a few servings like a tornado.
You know how a shrimp tail goes from thick to thin at the tail end?
Heidi-cat will eat only 1/2 . The thick body end. Raw or cooked. We share.

Years ago, I used to feed her a few chopped 71-90 shrimp tails every night at 5PM.
Then one night, I ran out. So, opened a tin of chunk tuna and served 1/3 of it.
That disappeared like Houdini on a good night. Ever since, 5PM is tuna time.
I eat a lot of fishy stuff. We share.
Curried tuna with frozen peas is an old, old tropical favorite of mine.

Perogy with bacon and onion again tonight. Thought of you eating the boozy pickles while
I had a glass of Merlot. 3 parts Kraft Miracle Whop and 1 part Dijon is good on perogy.

cobra1 I can't find it now but I saw on their site where they had little tester bottles of all different flavours. We like cream liquor's in nice strong coffee. That cookies & cream sounds interesting.
Who knows! Maybe peanut butter whiskey is good!

We get seasonal chocolate and pumpkin spice rye whiskeys here.
Just an ounce on ice is quite a treat.

I know that as 'rumtopf' Bob (which i suspect translates to rum pot!!).  Bloody good way of enjoying a dessert and getting gently sozzled!

I love pickles and would love to try these, but I don't put pickles into any drinks. I don't make bloody marys or anything like that. Do they stand on their own without a beverage? I would try to make them with vodka but I don't want to waste the cucumbers. I make fantastic Dill Pickles and the season is winding down in terms of cucumber production.

Perfect Bloody Mary recipe. Pour original Zing Zang over ice, with a grind of fresh black pepper and a lemon slice. Pour icy cold vodka of choice into shot glass. Sip the vodka, drink the Zing Zang. If you want a buffet put it on a plate and not piled up all over your glass.

Tabasco is for when making from scratch. Zing Zang does not need it.
