Alabama Slammer Recipe
. . . not just for football season!Here's a recipe I know everyone needs in their repertoire.
The Slammer has become known a favorite of frat boys, spring breakers and nautical aficionados of "boat drinks," although "Boat Drinks" singer Jimmy Buffett, himself an Alabamian from Mobile, of course immortalized a different drink, the tequila-based Margarita.
The Alabama Slammer comes in two versions: the cocktail, which is made in a highball glass, and the shot. While there are several variations on this Rama-Jama drink, I think this one is perfect.
