How to Make a Non Alcoholic Alabama Slammer

The traditional Alabama Slammer was invented in 1975 at the University of Alabama. In this non-alcoholic version, orange juice and a splash of lemon-lime soda take the place of Southern Comfort. Try one of many good brands of non-alcoholic amaretto liqueur to replace the traditional almond liqueur that is called for in the original drink.
