Southern Comfort Drinks

Southern comfort drinks are exceptionally popular party cocktails. Southern Comfort was created in New Orleans in 1874 and is available today in multiple varieties with the 100 proof and 70 proof formulations the most popular. If you want some drinks that are a little different for your next party, the cocktails below might just fit the bill. These drinks are smooth and sweet enough to satisfy ladies who like to sip their beverages slowly, but they have enough bite to titillate the male palate as well. Southern Comfort drinks are often very strong, so make sure that neither you nor your guests drink to excess. All recipes are intended for the 100 proof version of Southern Comfort, but the 70 proof version works, too. One shot is equivalent to 1.5 fluid ounces. 

1. Cyclone Sex. Although this is a drink that is primarily intended for girls, guys seem to like it, too. Amaretto is an almond or apricot liqueur, and a liqueur is a heavily sweetened, flavored form of alcohol that is usually not as strong as a true spirit. Cyclone Sex is a sweet, tasty cocktail that can entice you into drinking one after another.

2. Trashy Ash Hauler. This drink is so good, it's hard not to have too many of them. The cranberry juice adds just of bit of tanginess to this cocktail, but after a few sips, it becomes really smooth. Have a few of these and your ashes are likely to get hauled.
