- Hi folks --
Is the commercial liquor Southern Comfort the same as 'candy shots'?
It occurred to me it might be -- I've only had a couple of drinks of
Southern Comfort on the rocks, the last many years ago, and the flavour
reminded me of traditional pink lolly we called 'penny sticks'
(sometimes musk sticks). I suppose they're 50 cents sticks these days.
Would it be true that , far from being an ye ancient deep-south liquor,
Southern Comfort was, Like Bailey's, concocted in a laboratory or
marketing studio specifically for the sheila's market? Remember the
ads? "Tastes like....um?". The billboards lasted about 3 weeks due to
being wittily defaced.
