Blastoise's fearsome cannons pump some pleasant briny pickle juice into our drink here, creating a delicious blend of salty, sweet, and refreshing. Feel free to dose as you see fit, from a Water Gun sized addition all the way up to a Hydro Pump.
Add the pickle juice in before shaking so that the flavors can all marry, then pour over the mint and stir to incorporate, as before. If you feel the urge, garnish with either pickle or cornichons for added flavor. It's a perfect beverage for those times you're being carried across the sea by an animal you force to fight for you.
Muddle mint leaves in a glass with fine sugar. Add 1.5oz vodka, 1/3oz sweet vermouth, and 1/3oz dry vermouth, 1 egg white, and pickle juice to taste into an iced cocktail shaker. Shake the mixture for a full minute, then strain into your glass and garnish with a pickle or pair of cornichons.
