If you're looking to try something completely out of the ordinary next time you go out for a cocktail, the Liquid Diet cocktail offers foodies a delicious whiskey cocktail topped with several outlandish savory garnishes.

The Liquid Diet cocktail begins with a White Castle rye whiskey for an aromatic and classic taste. Added to the whiskey is a splash of tomato juice, liquid smoke and pickle juice. The addition of pickle juice is a clever nod to the infamous Pickle Back shot that comes with a shot of whiskey followed by a shot of pickle juice. The glass is then rimmed with decadent burger salt and garnished with a red tomato cherry and a slice of dill pickle. The best part is this cocktail is meant to be sipped through a bacon -- I repeat, bacon -- straw.
