The appearance of pickle cocktails in San Antonio shouldn’t come as much surprise given the city’s love affair with briny bites. Here are a handful of other pickle-infused drinks and snacks that have become local staples:

Pickle Shots at Hi-Tones // Billed as “the original pickle shot” on its website, the St. Mary’s music venue’s go-to libation may not be fancy, but a salted rim combined with the dual bite of pickle juice and high-proof alcohol makes for a bracing bar experience. 621 E Dewey Pl, hitonessa.com.

Piccadilly Raspas at Big Daddy’s Eats & Treats // Sure, these shaved-ice concoctions are found at plenty of South Texas snack shacks, but Big Daddy’s elevates it to a flavor extreme. The mix of chopped pickles, chamoy and Kool-Aid is a salty-sweet-sour-spicy workover for the taste buds. 228 E Cevallos St, facebook.com/BigDaddysEatsTreats.

Pickle Paletas from El Paraiso Ice Cream // Fruit-based ice pops can hit the spot on a summer day, assuming you crave a trip to Sweet City. El Paraiso’s sharp and salty pickle variety offers up a savory alternative to beat the heat — including real bits of shaved pickle. 1934 Fredericksburg Road, (210) 737-8101, elparaisoicecream.com.
