When I found out Southern Comfort recently released their newest flavor- Bold Black Cherry, I was so excited. The combination of two things I love: Southern Comfort and cherries, had me so excited with anticipation to try this newest flavor.

Southern Comfort was created by New Orleans bartender, Martin Wilkes (M.W.) Heron in 1874. After experimenting with a variety of fruits, spices and other spirits, Heron struck on the perfect combination creating a one-of-a-kind blend of whiskey, fruit, and spice flavors. The new Bold Black Cherry product carries on Southern Comfort’s heritage as the leader in the flavored spirit category. The combination of dark fruits with Southern Comfort is perfectly served with cola to enhance the rich, complex flavor.

Infused with natural cherry to deliver an authentic taste that’s smooth and invigorating, Southern Comfort Bold Black Cherry has been designed to appeal to a broad age range and meet consumer demand for great tasting flavors that are unique.

The Bold Black Cherry is a lot smoother than the original Southern Comfort and is fantastic on its own over ice, but we just LOVED it mixed with some Coca-Cola Zero – A classic drink with a little pizzazz.
