This Alabama Slammer is a sweet summer classic! Fruity, sweet, tart, and with a hint of almond flavor, the Alabama Slammer is a slam dunk for your tastebuds! This drink, which only takes 5 minutes to make, is commonly enjoyed at the University of Alabama, mostly due to its school-spirit crimson color. Maybe we should all be University of Alabama fans if they have a drink like this!
