Anyone want to help me name a drink?

1 oz Sloe Gin
1 oz Southern Comfort
1 oz Añejo Tequila
1 oz Dark Rum
1 oz Clear Curaçao

Pour the liquors directly into a collin's glass with ice, stir them, then fill with lemonade. Garnish with lime wedge or wheel.

I'm thinking it could be some variation on a Long Island, which is cool since it arose from some of my favorite liquors.

Any thoughts?

  1. I dub it the Hangover, because you're sure as hell going to have one with a mix of stuff like that.

    1. The "Haphazard Combination of a Bunch of Booze and Lemonade that is Horribly Sweet and Strong"

      1. Why not just call it

        The Curricane?

        1. Seriously?

          Call it start over again with less crappy booze. Sloe gin AND Southern Comfort.


          Rum and Tequila also do NOT mix.

            Ironically, I had someone over on Sunday who asked for a LI Iced Tea. I had to google, but by using quality ingredients (e.g. Cointreau, Hornitos, W&N, plus fresh citrus and skipping the cola, it wasn't bad.

            Then he asked (I was surprised he could still talk) for an Alabama Slammer. Googled again. No Southern Comfort in the house of course, but fresh orange juice, Luxardo Amaretto, Plymouth Sloe Gin and Jim Beam. I'm not a huge Almond fan, but it wasn't bad at all.

            I'm guessing that the above poster is starting to explore new cocktail flavors. Having tasted those two surprisingly not bad cocktails over the weekend, maybe it isn't as much of a train wreck as it sounds. I don't care for sweet, so it sounds like it needs acid, and I'm guessing that Southern Comfort is just as bad as I remember from my teenage years, and yeah it's no Manhattan, but gee...

            I've successfully mixed Cachaca and Tequila as well as Cachaca and Rum. Does the transitive law of arithmetic apply to booze?

            If you haven't tried Plymouth Sloe Gin, you should. It is complex and somewhat bitter. It is sweet and needs acid to balance it, but it's a very interesting ingredient. If you like Chartreuse, try this:

            As for a name, how about Long Fingernail Iced Tea? ;-)

              Cachaca and tequila I can see. It is the molasses with the tequila that just go yuck for me. I like good sloe gin.
