This Southern Comfort Southern Breeze is tart and sweet and is a great way to relax at the end of the day while enjoying the garden.
Southern Comfort is one of my favorite drinks. I normally have it mixed with diet coke, but I like to use it in cocktail recipes, too. If you add lime and a mix of juices to it, you get a refreshing drink that is perfect for a warm summer evening.
What is Southern Comfort
Southern Comfort is a whisky basked liqueur made in the USA. It is flavored with fruit and spice and has a sweet finish. The brand was created by a bartender named Martin Wilkes Heron in 1874 in New Orleans. The drink was originally known as Cuffs & Buttons.
I don’t use it as a liqueur when I drink it, although it is nice that way. I mix the spirit with other liquids to come up with sweet tasting cocktails
Southern Comfort Southern Breeze Cocktail
Making cocktails for friends is easy if you follow a few steps, and a fun way to get a party started in a festive way.
The drink combines both pomegranate and lychee juices to the popular alcoholic drink and the lime adds a nice zest. This gives the drink an Asian flair that is very nice.
You don’t even need a cocktail shaker for this drink. Just pour each of the ingredients over ice and give it a swirl and you are ready to enjoy.
Pull up a patio chair and relax. It’s summer! Now where is that southern breeze we were talking about?
