5 SoCo Cocktails In Honor Of Janis Joplin’s Birthday

Today (January 19th) would have been Janis Joplin’s 73rd birthday, and what better way to celebrate Janis’s birthday than with a cocktail containing one of her favorite spirits:  Southern Comfort.

Here’s five different cocktail recipes we found that we think Janis would adore almost as much as we adored her.  (And honestly, with all the sad classic rock news as of late, we all deserve a drink.)


57 Chevy

SoCo, gin, peach schnapps, orange juice, pineapple juice with a cherry garnish?  This drink is fully loaded!


Georgia Pie Cocktail

We can support any drink that’s basically liquid dessert.


Halley’s Comfort

Apparently, this drink is similar to a Sex On The Beach but not as “girly.”  Gentlemen…feel free to indulge.


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.
