Every day a different drink. Not just how to make them, but a detailed review of how they actually taste, photos of the drinks, and stories along the way. Starting from the beginning, The Bartender's Black Book will be our guide, taking us
(and our livers) on a journey from which we may never recover. Cheers!

#27: Alabama Slammer 2
1 oz Southern Comfort
Dash of Sloe Gin or Grenadine
Combine all ingredients in a tall glass filled with ice, fill with orange juice, shake, and garnish with an orange.
By dropping the Amaretto, the drink has a lighter, more orange color. With slightly more vodka, this is a bit stronger than the original Alabama Slammer. It also seemed to lose a touch of the spice from the Southern Comfort, even thought there was actually a bit more. Perhaps the larger quantity of orange juice masked the spices. It was slightly less sweet as well, without the Amaretto. This was still very good though.
Still hanging out on the porch. This is a good option if you don't have any Amaretto around.
