Named for the southern belle from Gone With the Wind
, the Scarlet O'Hara is as genteel a drink as its namesake. The cocktail features the liqueur that is a gem of the south, Southern Comfort, which is simply mixed with cranberry juice and a dash of lime (an optional, yet preferred ingredient). The Scarlet O'Hara has, for some time, been a popular drink and is a drink bartenders
should know. There is also a Rhett Butler
to finish the cast of characters.
