To all those who’ve ever sipped pickle brine right out of the jar after the last gherkin was gulped: your time has come. Washington, D.C.-based pickle purveyor Gordy’s has recently launched a line of brine, appropriately called Fine Brine.
The product is meant to be used in cocktails and comes in a shipment of four 12-ounce cans. The juice is the real deal—it comes from the company’s Hot Chili Spears, which are made with hot chili peppers and garlic. Gordy’s co-founder Sarah Gordon told Tasting Table: "It's literally a burst of acid and flavor all in one that brightens cocktails and dishes in a very subtle, balanced way. It rounds out cocktails and cooking recipes similar to how a pinch of salt does."
We’ll drink to that, whether it be cocktails, picklebacks, a plain old glass, or in conjunction with one of the many other ways this glorious by-product can be repurposed.
