An Alabama Slammer is a cocktail made with amaretto, Southern Comfort, sloe gin, and orange juice. It is served in a Collins glass. It is also sometimes known as a Southern Slammer. It is claimed to have been made famous by quarterback, Brett Favre; however, this drink was popular with college crowds as early as the 1980s, when it was served as a shaker shot in many bars and was also available as a 'pitcher' in T.G.I. Fridays and other chain restaurants.
Alabama Slammer is a song by the Casey Donahew Band on the Live-Raw-Real In The Ville Album, 2008
A Red Death can be made by mixing an Alabama Slammer with a Kamikaze. This drink is made in the same glass as the Alabama Slammer; the Kamikaze is added into it immediately after making the first drink. Made famous by hall of fame quarterback Joe Namath.
