Southern Comfort, known as SoCo by its friends, is an American whiskey-based liqueur. This classic spirit was first invented in 1874 by M. W. Heron in the city of New Orleans, Louisiana. This city has been the birthplace of so many fine inventions, Southern Comfort among them. The city's access to fruit and spices from all over the world was essential in crafting the original recipe for this historic spirit.
Invented as a way to camouflage the unpleasant taste that some whiskeys of the time could have, Southern Comfort takes a base of whiskey and adds a secret blend of fruit and spices. The result is a smooth, easy-to-drink spirit with the soul of a whiskey. While the recipe for Southern Comfort remains a secret, one historian says that the original recipe included vanilla, lemon, cinnamon, cloves, cherries, oranges and honey.
How is it made is not as important as how it tastes, though. Many celebrities have loved this product over the years including none other than Janis Joplin, who often had a bottle on the stage with her while performing. Try SoCo on the rocks, neat, or mixed. The array of spices and fruit in the classic liqueur means that it will marry well with all kinds of flavours.
