Warning: This Cocktail May Make You Want to Dance
I was talking to my sister Robyn this weekend and told her that I made this cocktail for the blog. She relayed to me that once when she was visiting my sister Denise they made a pitcher of the Alabama slammer cocktail. I think she said my mother was there too.
She had a funny look on her face when she told me. Therefore that led me to wonder whether they may have, I say may have, imbibed too much of this cocktail.
I am not surprised because it is easy to do. Also, it’s sweet. Hence, one can easily forget there is booze in it. That is why I decided to name it the shamalama Alabama slammer cocktail. Because when you forget about the booze, you may, I repeat, you MAY just so happen to get up and start dancing something that I named the shamalama dance.
I got this dance from World of Warcraft. Each of the humanoid races in the game has its own set of dance moves. One of the races is called Draenei. Accordingly, female Draenei dance with their arms raised in the air and their hips swiveling as they turn in a slow circle.
So this cocktail will make you do that dance, all the while thinking, “I’m shamalaming while I drink my Alabama slammer! Look at me go!”
At least that’s what I’d be doing.
This lovely Alabama slammer cocktail was also imbibed by my sister Nancy. She loved Southern Comfort and would order this occasionally when we went out together.
