Today (January 19) would have been Janis Joplin’s 76th birthday, and what better way to celebrate Janis’s birthday than by toasting her with one of her favorite spirits:  Southern Comfort.

Here are five different cocktail recipes we think Janis would adore almost as much as we adored her.  Cheers!


57 Chevy

SoCo, amaretto, peach schnapps, orange juice, pineapple juice with a splash of grenadine?  This drink is fully loaded!


Hot Apple Pie Cocktail

A drink that’s basically liquid dessert?  How could anyone resist?


SoCo Float

Yes, this is basically another liquid dessert, but when SoCo, vanilla vodka and root beer are involved, that’s not necessarily a bad thing.

Southern Comfort Float

Today, let's try the SoCo Float. This cocktail is unique and delicious, with great flavor from Vanilla Vodka and Root Beer. Try one today, and find lots of other awesome recipes on Southern Comfort's YouTube channel .


Scarlet O’Hara

I do declare that this refreshing SoCo/cranberry juice drink is giving us the vapors!


Alabama Slammer

This cocktail is a classic…just like Janis.
