Janis Joplin would’ve turned 80 today (January 19), and what better way to celebrate Janis’s birthday than by toasting her with one of her favorite spirits:  Southern Comfort.

Here are five different cocktail recipes we think Janis would adore almost as much as we adored her. Cheers!

  • 57 Chevy

    SoCo, amaretto, peach schnapps, orange juice, pineapple juice with a splash of grenadine? This drink is fully loaded!

  • Hot Apple Pie Cocktail

    A drink that’s basically liquid dessert?  How could anyone resist?

  • SoCo Float

    Yes, this is basically another liquid dessert, but when SoCo, vanilla vodka and root beer are involved, that’s not necessarily a bad thing.


  • Scarlet O’Hara

    I do declare that this refreshing SoCo/cranberry juice drink is giving us the vapors!

  • Alabama Slammer

    This cocktail is a classic…just like Janis.
