Alabama Crimson Tide: Alabama Slammer

The Alabama Slammer is a fun and fruity cocktail. Having been invented at the University of Alabama in 1975, it’s only right that this recipe be the signature drink for the Alabama Crimson Tide. It can be enjoyed as a shot or as a full size drink. “Some” residents of Alabama feel that a drink representing them should contain bourbon or at least be stronger. For those individuals I would suggest opting for the Southern Comfort 100 Proof AND adding 1/2 oz of Jack Daniels to the recipe. Better? Roll TIDE !

1/2 oz Amaretto Almond Liqueur
1/2 oz Southern Comfort
1/2 oz Sloe Gin
1 Splash of Orange Juice
1 Splash Sweet n Sour mix

Pour ingredients in a stainless steel shaker and shake until ice cold. Stain into an old fashioned glass and garnish with Orange wedge.
