I was at the bar this weekend and saw kids chasing shots with pickle juice. I asked them why, and they told me that "everybody is doing it."
Then I went home and saw Sonic is going to start selling pickle juice flavored slushes, and I now believe the kids I saw at the bar.
Foodbeast.com got to sample the new Pickle Juice Slush and they say it's, quote, "a unique syrup that provides a punch of briny acidity, but has enough sweetness to take the sharpness out of the flavor."
Oh, and if you don't want a straight pickle juice drink, they say you can add the syrup to any drink you want . . . so you could have a pickle juice Coke or something.
It will hit their stores in mid-June. I'm not anticipating lines out the door...
