Yes- a pop up shop. Just for pickles. But not just cucumber pickles-pickled asparagus, green tomatoes, grapes, oh my!
I adore Pickles. But you get left with this container of wonderfully salty "juice." When I was a kid the ice skating rink they used to turn this into "pickle-sicles" (yes frozen pickle juice popsicles) but i never really dug that. So I was going to toss it until I picked up Bon Appetite, and was inspired by their new Bloody Mary. So I made some tweaks and voila! my new favorite Bloody Mary!
(for 2. Because it's funner to drink with at least 1 other person)
- 2 cups 100% tomato juice
- 1/2 cup Grillo's Pickle Juice (i prefer the HOT variety. But that's me)
- 4 oz vodka (or try cucumber or vegetable infused vodka to make it even better)
- juice of 1/2 lemon
- Smoked sea salt
- Worcestershire sauce
- Black Pepper
- 2 celery sticks
Now run, don't walk, to Grillos before they (possibly) close at the end of March!
And cheers to the weekend!
