The Scarlett O’Hara Southern Comfort® Cocktail Recipe

The Scarlett O’Hara Southern Comfort Cocktail is a refreshing summer sipper, made with Southern Comfort, cranberry juice and lime.

My first “real” job out of college was working for Brown-Forman – the makers of Jack Daniel’s and until 2016, Southern Comfort.  It was the perfect job—by day I drove around in my company car, armed with a feather duster, a box cutter and stacks of point-of-sale –but several nights a week I “had” to make bar calls.  In other words, I’d go to bars and buy people drink – I was pretty popular when I showed up. 🙂

The Scarlett O’Hara cocktail was one of the first bar promotions I remember working.

Give Southern Comfort a Try

Dark Spirits vs. Light Spirits

Light spirits like vodka, rum, and tequila have overshadowed more traditional dark spirits like bourbon in recent years.  Southern Comfort, being a dark spirit also declined in popularity but this is a spirit that needs a second look.  It’s a complex mixer that adds great flavor to lemonade or fruit juice.

Southern Comfort History

Southern Comfort is an American whiskey-flavored liqueur with fruit (primarily peaches) and spice. The brand was created by a New Orleans bartender named Martin Wilkes Heron in 1874.  The original base spirit was whiskey. Today Southern Comfort is made with American grain as the base spirit.

    Amazing Low-Calorie Pumpkin Custard
    Decadent Low-Calorie Pumpkin Custard is the perfect low-calorie dessert for the holidays. Many of us look forward to having pumpkin pie once a year on Thanksgiving but we may not want all the extra calories. Give this recipe a try - you'll get all the pumpkin pie goodness with 1/2 the calories.  If you want a lighter dessert, but still want all of the flavors of your traditional pumpkin pie, try making this simple pumpkin custard instead. This pumpkin custard is basically a pumpkin pie without the pie shell. In fact, pumpkin pie is a fairly healthy dessert option, and it is even healthier if you don't use the pie shell, which is made mostly from butter. Enjoy pumpkin custard throughout the fall season, since pumpkins are in such ready supply you can easily use fresh pumpkin, or use canned puréed pumpkin if you are short on time or can't find fresh pumpkin.
