Anyone ever had a Pickleback shot?

We're going to Fado in Buckhead tomorrow night, and they're advertising these as a shot special. It's a shot of Jameson Irish Whiskey followed by a shot of pickle juice. I'm not sure what to think of this.

That sounds like it would produce instant barfage.

That was my first reaction. Apparently those two combined together are quite tasty, but any other whiskey will result in certain puking.

Found this about it:

quote:

When I asked TJ Lynch, who is New York City’s "Prophet of the Pickleback", how his customers react when he offers up the unusual shot of Jameson and a pickle juice chaser to his patrons, he said that he gets three reactions. “The most popular is that they think I’m kidding, followed by thinking I’m crazy and some people say that there is no way they are going to try it.” Luckily, Lynch is very persuasive and I can attest that the combination of Jameson’s Irish Whiskey and pickle juice, while sounding odd, can be a delicious combination. Lynch attributes the success of the drink to Jameson’s slightly wood, sweet taste, which, combined with the pickle juice, leaves a rich, umami flavor on the palate. I will warn you, do not accept a pickle back without Jameson’s. Every substitution I have tried has had disastrous results. As for the pickle juice itself, I have tried everything from canned pickle juice in a neighborhood tavern to homemade pickle brine from Michael Mina’s Bourbon Steak in Scottsdale and just about everything in between. I prefer a homemade brine, but the juice from commercial pickles works just fine. Just try to avoid brine from pickled beets, the combination ends up tasting like a week old sweatsock

I can't stand the smell of pickles. I can't stand the taste of pickles. The thought of pickles makes me queasy. The thought of pickles and irish whiskey make me want to curl up in a ball and die.

why do people ruin a good shot of whiskey like this? Kind of like pouring red bull in a perfectly good shot of Jagger. Drink the shot plain and if you do not like it then find a fruity drink you like.
