About this Cocktail

When your handle is @thepicklefreak and it's your birthday there isn't any such thing as "too briny". Showing the love for the person who makes Launch Pad run, the the team at Capdeville created a specialty cocktail using their house-made pickles and some of the brine. It's definitely geared for those who seek out "a jarring experience".

  • 2 oz Hendricks Gin
  • .5 oz fresh lemon juice
  • .5 oz half-sour pickle brine
  • 1 slice Cucumber - pickled
  • 1 clove Garlic - pickled
  • 1 slice Onion - pickled
  • a tiny pinch of Jalapeño - pickled
  • Splash of soda water
  • Spicy pickled green beans for garnish

Muddle the cucumber, garlic, onion, and jalapeño together in a cocktail shaker. Add the gin, lemon juice along with crushed ice and stir until chilled. Add a splash of soda water and pour (unstrained) into a pint glass. Top off with ice and garnish with at least 3 spicy pickled beans and a single slice of half-sour pickle.
