Scarlet O’Hara Cocktail

How To Make A Scarlet O’Hara Cocktail

The Scarlet O’Hara has, for some time, been a popular drink and is a drink that all bartenders in those southern US states should know, since the cocktail features the liqueur that is a gem of the south, Southern Comfort.

The slight sweetness of the bourbon based liqueur balances the sourness of both cranberry and lime in this cocktail. If your guest prefers a little added sugar, consider squirting in a dash of simple syrup.

This drink is surprisingly close in make up to the vodka based Cosmopolitan, where the Southern Comfort is swapped out for the simpler spirit. Note that for you nostalgic fans of the classic movie, there is also a Rhett Butler to complement this sweet drink.

And if you like cranberry juice as a mix for your drinks, you might also like the Sea Breeze or Cape Codder!
