Southern Comfort is a sweet bourbon flavored liqueur that originated in New Orleans. Southern Comfort has a higher congener content than clear alcohol, so it is more likely to cause a hangover, according to the Mayo Clinic website. Congeners are chemicals produced during fermentation that give an alcohol its taste and aroma.
