Halley's Comfort

This drink is pretty gross. It doesn't surprise me to find bad Southern Comfort and peach schnapps cocktail in the New York Bartender's Guide published back in 1997, but it surprises me with just how bad this one is.

The Halley's Comfort is just too sweet. It would be one thing if the Southern Comfort, a peach liqueur, were the sweet part and a stronger whiskey was used. But the worst part is that in stead there's equal parts of peach schnapps. The best you can do is squeeze that lemon wedge into the drink as soon as possible and hope that the acid balances all that peach liqueur.
  • 2 oz. Southern Comfort
  • 2 oz. peach schnapps
  • sparkling water
  • lemon slice
Pour liqueurs into a Collins glass full of ice. Top with sparkling water and stir gently. Add lemon slice as a garnish.
