New Again

Try a Scarlett O'HaraIt’s no secret that I enjoy a cocktail. I like a nice glass of cold white wine or a sparkling glass of champagne. Then again, there are times that nothing but a well-made mixed drink will fill the bill. Southern Comfort was invented in New Orleans in 1874. It’s a mix of fruit, spice, and whiskey that’s used in many classic cocktails.  Here are two chic cocktails that are not too sweet and easy to make.

Scarlett O’Hara
2 ounces Southern Comfort
2 ounces cranberry juice
Juice of half line
Shake or stir over ice and garnish with a wedge of lime
Black Widow
2 ounces of Southern Comfort
¾ ounce dark rum
Juice from ½ lemon
1 tsp of simple syrup or extra fine sugar
Shake over ice and pour into a chilled martini glass
