The Alabama Slammer is a 70s Southern creation, perfect for summer entertaining. Thought to have been invented at the University of Alabama as a shooter (hence the name ‘slammer’), it eventually evolved into the tall and fruity cocktail that we’ve come to love today.
The Alabama Slammer cocktail is easy to pre-batch to serve a crowd.
For a more potent cocktail, build the drink in an ice-filled glass, stirring well before serving.
Replace the sloe gin with grenadine and add more orange juice for a slightly lighter drink.
