Alabama Slammer

An Alabama Slammer – also known as a Southern Slammer –  is a cocktail made with amaretto, Southern Comfort, sloe gin, and orange juice. The Alabama Slammer was first written about in the 1970's but became popular in the 1980's after being served in TGI Fridays.

The orange juice brings together the variety of spirits and turns them into a fruity and refreshing cocktail.

  2. Pour the rum, amaretto, gin and juice into the shaker.
  3. With the lid on, shake it vigorously until cold to the touch.
  4. Pour into a tall glass.
  5. Optionally garnish with the fruit.
