Southern Comfort Archives – LUSHWORTHY

Chances are you’ve had a boozy float in your lifetime. But have you had a boozy float made with your own liquor-infused ice cream? If you haven’t, you’ll be happy to hear that while it may sound complex, making your own booze-infused ice cream is actually pretty easy. The booze of choice for my ice cream was Southern Comfort Caramel, which is a whiskey liqueur. Since it is a liqueur, it freezes a little easier than most spirits, and it’s also rather sweet, which makes it absolutely perfect for ice cream.

And when I say liquor-infused ice cream is easy to make, we’re talking “three-ingredient-throw-it-in-the-freezer-and-watch-the magic-happen” easy. You can find both the Southern Comfort Caramel Ice Cream, and boozy float recipe below. Cheers!

Time waits for no man and that’s especially true when it comes to the holidays. We’ve just celebrated Labor Day and booze brands are already beginning to release their holiday flavors. Southern Comfort is one of the first to announce their limited-edition holiday flavor, Southern Comfort Gingerbread Spice.

Described as “a zesty and smooth combination of warm gingerbread flavors, creamy vanilla and subtle notes of Southern Comfort,” their new Gingerbread Spice sounds pretty ideal for spiking those cold-weather drinks.

“Gingerbread is one of the most popular holiday flavors. You see it just about everywhere – in coffee, seasonal sweets, and now in your favorite spirit.” said Jennifer Powell, Southern Comfort Brand Director. “Southern Comfort’s unique flavor is mixed with hints of Gingerbread and cinnamon spice to create a delicious, ready to serve holiday drink that’s sure to become a holiday tradition.”

You can get your hands on a bottle of Southern Comfort Gingerbread Spice beginning on October 1st.

You’ll Also Like: 5 Random Observations From Southern Comfort’s New “Dance” Commercial (Video)

If you know me then you know that I’m a fan of the wacky guys featured in Southern Comfort’s “Whatever’s Comfortable” commercials. It’s been a minute since we were last introduced to one of SoCo’s whisky-drinking characters and last week that all came to an end thanks to Southern Comfort’s new “Dance” commercial. Whenever I come across one of the “Whatever’s Comfortable” commercials my brain is usually bombarded with a number of random observations, so I figured I’d actually list ’em out this time. Here goes…

1. Is he wearing a cookie on his shirt? Seriously though, is that a paper cookie stuck to his chest? And if so, then I think I want one.

2. This song is kinda jammin’. Yep, the song’s called “Estrelar” by Marcos Valle and I will be YouTube-ing it in a matter of minutes for an impromptu jam session. Yes, a jam session quite similar to the one featured in this video.

3. Top Row, Center. You see the dance move buddy’s performing in the top row, center column around the 0:35 mark? There’s about an 82.5% chance that you’ll be performing that same exact dance move in the club two weeks from now.

4. Moves Like Jagger? Is it just me or did his dance moves become a lot more suave once he had a glass of whiskey in his hand?

5. Garnish game on lock. Southern Comfort should really consider creating drink garnishes that are actual waving flags. How epic would that be?

You’ll Also Like: Battle Of The Southern Comfort “Whatever’s Comfortable” Dudes: Shampoo Guy vs. Shirtless, Beach Hunk (Giveaway)

I was fully expecting the shirtless guy from Southern Comfort’s first “Whatever’s Comfortable” commercial to again work his magic in the brand’s latest ad, so I was a little saddened when this wasn’t the case. Instead of our confident, banana hammock-sporting homeboy, we’re instead introduced to a new guy in Southern Comfort’s “Shampoo” commercial. I was a little leery of Shampoo Guy at first, but as soon as he put on his glasses to give the lady across the way a compelling head nod while holding on to a glass of SoCo on the rocks and getting his hair shampooed, I realized he might just be as cool as our Shirtless, Beach Hunk.

So, now that we’ve got a new “Whatever’s Comfortable” hero to rave about, I have to ask you guys who you think is the better “Whatever’s Comfortable” mascot. Shampoo Guy or Shirtless, Beach Hunk? Before you answer that, I have a handful of categories you may want to consider. I’ve also offered my opinion on who I think should take each category.

Style – Shampoo Guy – Yes, the handlebar mustache is pretty amazing, but those snakeskin boots really sealed the deal for me.

Appeal To The Ladies – Shirtless, Beach Hunk – The fact that I’m even referring to this guy as a “hunk” already shows that he’s a hit with the ladies.
