Pickle Juice is juice that has been used to pickle a food item.

Though it's usually presumed to be juice that cucumbers in one form or another were pickled in, that's not strictly true: the juice can be from beets, pickled peppers, etc..

It can be re-used to make pickled eggs and pickled bologna. It is probably best, though, not to re-use it though for anything you are going to store on shelves, as water from previous vegetables in the pickle juice may have diluted the acidity making it less capable of staving off botulism. Consequently, re-use it for refrigerated pickled items only.

In fact, there are so many uses for Pickle Juice once the pickles are gone, that you'll wonder why people just pout it down the drain:
