Hurricane
In a tall hurricane glass with ice, add:
1½ ounces Southern Comfort
1½ ounces lemonade
1½ ounces orange juice
1½ ounces pineapple juice
1 teaspoon grenadine
Stir and garnish with an orange slice and a cherry.
 
SoCo Bacon Toasts
1 pound bacon
1 loaf whole wheat bread
1 jar Major Grey’s Mango Chutney
1 tablespoon Southern Comfort
Chives, finely chopped (for garnish)
 
Preheat broiler to high.  Cook bacon until crisp, chop into fine pieces and place on a small plate.  Using a biscuit cutter or the top of a jar stamp out 1½ inch bread rounds, you can usually get three rounds per slice of bread.  In a small bowl mix the chutney and Southern Comfort (you may want to heat it slightly in the microwave so it incorporates easier).  Spread a generous amount of the chutney mixture on the bread round then dip it in the bacon pieces so they stick to the bread.  Repeat the steps for each bread round.  Just before serving heat under the broiler to further crisp the bacon.  Top with chives and serve immediately.
 
Yield:  30 toasts
 
Note:  The toasts can be made one day ahead and stored in the refrigerator until ready to broil and serve.
