We’ll add this to NY Barfly’s news that the Breslin is serving off-the-menu pickle backs: The surprisingly effective combination of whiskey with a chaser of pickle juice is also being served (much cheaper, we’re guessing) at the venerable Nancy Whiskey Pub. One of the bartenders recently added it to her repertoire after a visit to the home of the original pickle back, Bushwick Country Club, and will gladly do a shot with you if you ask for it. Just be careful with these — too many of them will turn you into a real dill weed.
