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?
