Alabama Slammer

I love the assonance in the name of this drink. Makes me want to call it Alabama "Slamma!'" It is strong and sweet too. Don't be fooled--it's no Negroni. What we have here is an all-liquour drink that is nutty and fruity. There's a hint of gin spice, too, from the sloe gin, but it is mostly cover over by sugar.

Lazzaroni Amaretto is an Italian amaretto from the town of Saronno, where they make cookies with the almond cordial flavor. The spirit is supposedly an infusion of these cookies in the spirit. Sounds like a "chicken and egg," situation when it comes to determining which was first.
  • 1 oz. Amaretto (Lazzaroni used)
  • 1 oz. Southern Comfort
  • 1/2 oz. sloe gin
  • squeeze of lemon wedge
Combine all ingredients in a rocks glass with ice. Stir gently and squeeze lemon wedge over the drink before dropping it in.
