Comfortable Sour

The Comfortable Sour turns Southern Comfort peach liqueur into a sour by adding lemon juice, orange juice and a touch of gomme syrup to keep the tartness just right.

Comfortable Sour in short glass

This drink is great to relax with. It’s mellow – not too sweet, nor too tart. It’s light and easy to take – not bursting with flavor, but not boring either. It’s also a nice choice for guests because it’s the sort of drink most anyone enjoys.
