Well since we broke out a spirit from across the pond in a prior podcast, we felt it was time to jump back across the pond and talk about some Irish Whiskey. We brought in the always infamous but never changed Irish Whiskey, Jameson. With this weeks spirit, we got to know a lot of great ways to enjoy Jameson, some firsts by one of the hosts and a new hipster way to enjoy Jameson as a shot. However, how you order your Irish Whiskey is completely up to you, for our hosts, we proved that anything is possible when you start you day with a shot of Jameson.
You will hear about some great ways to enjoy this whiskey during the podcast but we are going to talk about one of the new ways to enjoy Jameson as a shot. A trend that has become popular is enjoying a shot of Jameson with a shot of pickle juice. Yes, we are talking about a pickleback. As bartenders, we have seen this shot growing more popular around St. Patrick’s day but it is still ordered during the normal drinking days (364 of them outside of St. Patrick’s day). As I said above, a pickleback is a shot of Jameson, chased with a shot, a sip or just a taste of pickle juice. Now the second part, completely goes towards your enjoyment of pickle juice in general. I am sure there isn’t a high demand for it as a beverage but I have known some people in the past to enjoy the taste so much, they made popsicles out of pickle juice. Yes, that is a true story.
However for our last round of tasting, we brought this shot into Whiskey On The Rails with a very special guest. While we shall keep the guest a secret until the podcast comes out, we proved that if you sit around a listen to a recording, we gotta bring you into the mix at somepoint during the podcast. Our guest, not only stepped up to the plate and did the shot but “she” actually enjoyed it. It was identified that she wasn’t a whiskey girl by anymeans but the extra addition of pickle juice really helped her palette of enjoyment with doing it and really out of the three people who did the shot, it was approved by two of the three.. Stay tuned for the podcast to find out who was the “biggest loser”…
Now, at the end of the day, we added another whiskey to the shelves of whiskey reviewed on Whiskey On The Rails. A very common Irish Whiskey which everybody should have in their stock of spirits.
