“I see America drinking the fabulous cocktails I make,
Americans getting stinky on something I stir or shake,
The Sex on the Beach,
The Schnapps made from peach,
The Velvet Hammer,
The Alabama Slammer.”
Immortalized by Tom Cruise’s bar-poet character Brian Flanagan in the movie Cocktail, the Alabama Slammer is a staple drink in the South; a favorite of frat boys and cocktail enthusiasts alike. Originally made up of equal parts of Sloe Gin, Southern Comfort and Amaretto, along with orange juice, a cherry and an orange slice for garnish, the Slammer is served both on ice in a Collins glass or as a killer shot.
