Snackshot of the Day: Pickleback

Photos of all things food and drink from The Daily Meal

A pickleback is a shot of whiskey chased with a shot of pickle juice.

The Daily Meal's editors, contributors, and readers dig into some pretty great restaurants, festivals, and meals. There's not always enough time to give a full review of a restaurant or describe in depth why a place, its food, and the people who prepare it are noteworthy, so Snackshot of the Day does what photographs do best, rely on the image to do most of the talking.

Today's Snackshot is of a pickleback. A pickleback is simply a shot of whiskey, chased with a shot of pickle juice. I know it sounds gross, but it's actually a perfect combination. For my first pickleback experience, I was neither a fan of whiskey nor pickles, and I still loved it. The shot pictured comes from The Grove in Toronto, but picklebacks can be found in most bars, though are more commonly ordered in the divey ones.
