Refreshing Alabama Slammer cocktail in a highball glass garnished with fresh orange

The Alabama Slammer is a 70s Southern creation, perfect for summer entertaining. Thought to have been invented at the Univeristy of Alabama as a shot (hence the name ‘slammer’), it eventually evolved into the tall and fruity cocktail that we’ve come to love today.

QUICK TIPS

01

The Alabama Slammer cocktail is easy to pre-batch to serve a crowd at parties.
