Alabama is a popular state; there are movies, music and even drinks dedicated to it. Why is there no Sweet Home Carolina? Why isn’t there a Carolina Slammer? Well I take that back, there is now unofficially a Carolina Slammer and it is the creation of my best friend, Grace! Carolina Slammers

Since she is a bartender by trade I was happy to try the concoction she whipped up in the Thirsty Thursday kitchen this week. It’s a perfect for fall drink that is sure to be a hit with guests and yourself.

There’s a lot going on with this drink that makes it so special. There is a little fizz, a little sweet and a tiny kick – everything I want from my 21+ beverages.  The king of the party (pun intended) here is Crown Royal XO (we received this for review – that didn’t affect our opinions). The smooth, ultra-premium blended Canadian whisky is the perfect base to a deliciously wonderful drink.
