SoCo Limeade—SO Much Better Than Your 21st Birthday Shot

There’s a reason lots of folks choose a SoCo & Lime as their first shot when they turn 21: Southern Comfort may be strong, but it’s got enough sweetness and fruitiness that it’s palatable. In fact, cut with some citrus it’s actually pretty delicious! So of course we decided to turn it into a cocktail. It’s all the fun of a special-occasion shot, in a respectably sippable form. Bottoms up!
