Rachel Maddow Does Shots With Jimmy Fallon

By: Jessica Wakeman / January 6, 2012

Rachel Maddow isn’t just good at looking cute and making politicians look like idiots. She is also an amateur mixologist. (Good skill to have if that whole MSNBC hosting gig falls through.) Last night on “Late Night,” Rachel taught Jimmy Fallon how to do “pickleback” shots, which is one shot each of Jameson and pickle juice. “It’s a little weird,” she says. The word she’s looking for is revolting. [I find them delicious, actually. -- Editor] But I’d still drink them, because Rachel Maddow made them. And also, there’s something in pickle juice that makes it a good hangover cure. I’m sold. [Hulu.com]
