There is a popular legend that the Scarlett O’Hara cocktail was created soon after the film ended. The drink has enjoyed quite a bit of popularity over the years but in the 21st century, some of its appeal has faded. Depending on the amount of cranberry juice you add, you can make the cocktail tall or short. Varying the amount of lime juice will also give you the tart kick you prefer in the fruity cocktail.
Scarlett O’Hara recipes use cranberry juice in a variety of ways. You will find recipes that use little cranberry juice and others that use a lot. For this recipe add 1 1/2 ounces of each American Spirit and cranberry juice to 3/4 ounce of lime juice, mix 2 ounces of Southern Comfort with 12 ounces of cranberry juice and a splash of lime and shake well. This is great for a short glass and when shaken correctly, it can be an up-drink.
