First, let’s clarify: What exactly is SoCo? Southern Comfort is an abbreviation of Southern Comfort. It is a type of flavored whisky. Because SoCo is a nickname, knowing the full name will allow you to find the main ingredient in this drink recipe at the store.
Let’s now address some other questions you may have about SoCo. What type of alcohol is SoCo?
SoCo is a liqueur made naturally with fruits and spices. It is often called whiskey, but that doesn’t make it a valid name. In the original recipe, whiskey was the base liquor. That secret remains to this day. SoCo is made with neutral spirits, which are commonly used in liqueurs. However, this liqueur has flavors that remind you of orange, cinnamon, clove and cherry.

You can increase the number of ingredients in a cocktail, just like with most shots. The SoCo shot is no exception. For 1 ounce of lime juice, you can add 2 ounces of Southern Comfort to increase the alcohol content. You can also keep the ratios constant, adding 2 ounces of Southern Comfort to 1 ounce of lime juice. As shown, shake the mixture with ice. This cocktail is as strong as two shots.
This drink is not a variation on the SoCo shot with Lime but a cocktail with this caramelly liquor and citrus flavors. This recipe calls for sweet-and-sour instead of lime juice. Sweet-and-sour mixes are made with lemon-lime flavoring, sweetener and other ingredients. A Southern Hurricane is perfect if you want a complex drink with SoCo and Lime.
Combine 1 1/2 ounces SoCo, 11/2 ounces sweet-and-sour mixture, 11/2 ounces orange juice, 11/2 ounces pineapple juice and a splash of grenadine in a hurricane glass. Mix the flavors by stirring gently. Add a maraschino cherry, orange slice and a sprinkle of salt.
This refreshing fruity drink combines the rich flavors of SoCo with the sweet, nutty aroma of amaretto to create a delicious delight. This is a great way to introduce SoCo cocktails to those who don’t like Lime.
Combine 1 ounce of SoCo, 1 cup amaretto (like Disonarro), 1 cup sloe Gin, 2 ounces of orange juice and 1 ounce of SoCo in a shaker. Add ice to the shaker. Once the cocktail has been shaken well, strain it into a tall glass with ice. Add a cocktail cherry and an orange slice to garnish.
Bartender’s note: What exactly is sloe Gin? This gin is not the same as the gin that you are used to drinking in martinis. Because it is low in alcohol, it is technically a spirit. Because it is infused with fruit, it has a bright red color making it easier to distinguish sloe from regular gin.
Add cranberry juice to your SoCo or lime cocktail. First, add ice to a Collins glass or tall cocktail glass. Next, add 2 ounces of SoCo and 12 ounces of lime juice. To combine the flavors, stir the drink gently using a spoon or straw. Fill the remainder of the glass with cranberry juice. Add a slice of Lime to the cocktail.
