The Alabama Slammer has been around since the 70s, and there are a few minor variations on it. The most common version blends Southern Comfort with amaretto, sloe gin and orange juice.
It’s a delicious fruity cocktail. In this recipe, the amaretto’s cherry notes are emphasized. This is one of those drinks where you can’t easily identify different notes – it all blends wonderfully into one sweet, fruity flavor.
Alabama Slammers are perfect for drinking by the pool or serving at a barbecue. They’re great for hot afternoons, but they’re also terrific for unwinding at the end of a long work week. Some restaurants mix them up by the pitcher, which is also something you can do at home for a get-together.
