Cocktail Caberet: Strawberry Comfort

I've been very naughty and haven't been keeping up with my 3x weekly Cocktail Cabaret posts like I said I was going to. See, this is what happens when it's not required of me by somebody else for content for a daily website. This is a personal blog, and as such, I am my own boss. And as a boss, I suck! LOL

Anyhow, since it's pretty much my bedtime, this is going to be a really quick post of Cocktail Cabaret. This Saturday, I went to Joe's Crab Shack in Old Sac with 3 fantastic girlfriends for a much needed Girl's Day Out. This is our bi-annual trip we arrange for the birthdays each of us have. The Stephanies in October, and Alexis and I in March/April. So we had some food and some drinks and the Stephanies had something called a Pomberry Sangria. It was very tasty and looked pretty, but I decided to have the Strawberry Comfort. These both came in these clear glass Mason jars and included in the price of the drink, you got to take the glasses home. They were awesome, see?

I got this recipe from a Yahoo Answer and the person said she'd gotten it straight from a Joe's Crab Shack bartender, so it should be on the up and up. So the way to make the Strawberry Comfort is like this:

1.5 Oz Southern Comfort
.5 Oz Bacardi Limon
3 oz Sprite
3 Oz Sweet&Sour
1 Oz Strawberry Puree
2 Lemons, squeeze, leave in glass


Squeeze lemon juice into a shaker. Put the lemons in the bottom of a large glass, then fill it with ice. They used Mason jars, you could just use a big glass. Stir all the rest of the ingredients into the lemon juice in the shaker. Pour over the ice and lemons in the Mason jar/large glass. Garnish with a slice of lemon and stick a nice big straw in for maximum drinkage.

This drink was so good and you totally can't taste the alcohol in it. And for those of you that can't stand Southern Comfort? You can't even taste it, BELIEVE ME. This drink tastes like strawberry lemonade, that's it. You could get unintentionally bombed on this drink, it's that good.
