After spending many months developing the recipe Florence came up with a blend that is brewed for a minimum of twelve weeks with sliced cucumbers and spices to create a flavour that is both sweet and savoury. Allowing the pickle juice to brew for a minimum of 12 weeks softens the acidity in the vinegar adding a new depth of flavour to the juice.
Pickle Juice is full of electrolytes which can help rehydrate your body with nutrients; and the turmeric works as a great anti-inflammatory.
Pickle House - Pickle Juice - 500ml
A few years ago Florence was on holiday in New York and had been told by some friends she had to try a Pickleback; a shot of whiskey followed by a shot of pickle juice. The whole concept seemed completely strange but once she tried it she was hooked and wanted to find a way to bring it back to London.
Florence started playing around with different pickle recipes to come up with a pickle juice created specifically for drinking in cocktails and smoothies; not just the left over brine from a jar of pickles.

For months I have been hearing about people drinking pickle juice and like many I assumed they were talking about the left overs from a jar of pickles.
Having come across The Pickle House at a recent food and drink fair I can confirm that this isn't the case. Pickle Juice (produced for drinking) is a refined drink with complexities across many levels.
The Bloody Mary Mix is also something that, thanks to the addition of pickle juice, provides a challenging but delicious take on the traditional Bloody Mary...
Note: Whilst there are many suggested benefits to Pickle Juice, one should remember that this is a vinegar and should be drunk sensibly.
