Scarlet O'Hara Cocktail

By

Glass Guide- Collins Glass

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.
