Brief Historical Timeline:
Think of Southern Comfort as if it were a whiskey for mixing in cocktails!
Here's a Southern Comfort cocktail I learned in bartending school:
1 1/2 oz Southern Comfort
3/4 oz Amaretto
3/4 oz Sloe Gin
2 oz Orange Juice
Build over ice and garnish with an orange wheel, a cherry, or whatever citrus fruit you may have handy!
