Excuse me, waiter - I think there's pickle juice in my martini

I'm all for adventurous drinking (in moderation, of course) but I think I may have had the most awesomely awful drink of my life at Vegiterranean in Akron, OH.  I had a pickle juice martini.  Why do such a thing to myself, you ask?  I do love pickles.  And pickle juice.  (it's great for athletes, according to this article) And I really like martinis, so I thought trying those things together would be a good idea.

And it kind of was.  Maybe?

I'll never do the drink justice with any sort of description.  Think extra strong vodka and with a hint of homemade pickle. And I say homemade pickle because the level of saltiness wasn't quite what you'd find in a jar of Claussen's pickles.  And unlike a jar of Claussen's pickles, I didn't have to stop myself from quickly gulping down the whole drink.  

I'm not going to lie.  It was a weird drink.  A really weird drink.  I'd take a sip and think, "Ooh!  Pickle!"  And then I'd take another sip and think, "Ewww!  Pickle!?!"    

But you can try anything once, right?  What's the strangest drink concoction you've ever tried?

  1. you know, I do love a dirty martini, but I can't say that I've ever had a pickle martini. Hmmm... I did make some pickles over the summer. Now I'm dying to try this, even if it's just once!
