The Alabama Slammer cocktail is a drink invented in the 1970s, and it has been popular ever since. It is whiskey-based, with orange juice and gin, and some Amaretto liqueur to give it an appealing orange color. The Alabama Slammer Cocktail can be served either on ice or without ice.
Pour all the ingredients into a cocktail shaker with ice cubes. Cover and shake until the outside of the shaker is frosty, about 30 seconds.
Strain the drink into a highball glass over crushed ice or serve up in a cocktail glass without ice, depending on preference.
After a successful run-through in the 1970s, 1980s, and 1990s, it seems that Alabama Slammer has lost some of its appeal. But this fruity drink continues to find eager patrons at college bars across America who appreciate its flavor and heady effects in certain parts of their home state.
