Pickle Back Shot

It's Friday following a long and productive week at the PPAI Expo and we couldn't be more excited to dote on our good pals over at Bel Promo today as they bring to you our brandivate beverage of the week! We are in love with these little 2 oz. ARC Square Shot Glasses (Item #A19188) adorned with an imprint you can see for miles. Crisp, clean, bold. We opted for a clear bottom, but this item is available in six other colors to accent any artwork you wish to showcase! 

So, what are we swigging today? Glad you asked! We've got a classic pairing and a duo sure to kick your Friday up a notch. This, friends, is the greatness that is the Pickleback shot! Never heard of such a thing? Well, apparently the brine in pickle juice is an incredibly effective chaser as it instantly neutralizes the burn of any alcohol. A pro tip for the shot lovers out there!

The road to enjoying this pair couldn't be more simple. 


  • 2 oz. Jameson or any Whiskey you so fancy 

  • 2 oz. Pickle Juice

  • 1 Mini Pickle 


Pour the whiskey into one of those gorgeous Bel Promo ARC Square Shot Glasses and the pickle juice in to the other. Shoot the whiskey followed immediately by the pickle juice and take a wee bite of that garnish and get back to the party!  

How are you all turning yourselves up for this fine and much deserved weekend? #bbotw

It’s the first full week of the year and we are most certainly ready for the brandivate beverage of the week! Today we are celebrating the Orange Bowl victory by Bill Petrie’s Texas A&M Aggies by enjoying Yuengling Hershey’s Chocolate Porter. This partnership between America’s oldest brewery and America’s most iconic chocolate has created a fresh take on Yuengling’s 200-year-old Dark Brewed Porter. While it’s thinner than most porters, both the aroma and flavor are bold with cocoa without being overly sweet. Not a bad way to toast a great football team and the end of the week!


How are you rushing into the weekend? #bbotw

Happy New Year to all of our brandivate beverage of the week fans! We had a feeling that celebrating the end of 2020 might require some good old fashioned hydration today, so join us as we sip on the bubbliest of all bubbly waters, Topo Chico!

How are you rolling on into 2021 today? Cheers! #bbotw
