Pickleback Shots…in a PICKLE!

These pickleback shots are made for the true pickle fans!

Recipe made for bulk shots…


  • 1 1/4 cup of pickle juice
  • 1/2 cup of J.T. Meleck vodka
  • 2 packages of plain gelatin
  • 12 large pickles
  • 1 tablespoon of chopped fresh dill


  • In a small saucepan over medium-high heat, combine pickle juice and vodka, and bring mixture to a simmer. Remove saucepan from heat then whisk in gelatin. Let mixture cool slightly.
  • Make pickle shot glasses: cut off the ends of each pickle so that both ends are flat, then cut each pickle in half crosswise. Using a quarter teaspoon, scoop out the middle of each pickle to create a well.
  • Carefully pour vodka mixture into each pickle then sprinkle dill on top. Refrigerate until jello is set, about 2 hours.
