The Thrifted Kitchen {Gone With the Wind Cocktails}


Bet you thought I'd checked out for the weekend, right? Well, after tasting these cocktails last night, it was certainly tempting to call it a day earlier this afternoon, but I had way too much fun putting these photos together to wait until next week to share them!

Inspired by one of cinema's most famous couples, I came across these vintage recipes in Cocktails and Snacks (published in 1953), and thought it would make a super cute serving idea for your (adult) Valentine's Day bash. I mean, we all know Scarlett and Rhett had their troubles, but theirs was a love for the ages! :)


Rhett Butler Cocktail
Makes 1 serving

1.5 ounces Southern Comfort
1 teaspoon orange curacao
1/2 teaspoon agave nectar (original recipe calls for fine-grain sugar, but nectar dissolves much better!)
Juice of 1/4 lime
Juice of 1/4 lemon

Combine all ingredients in a shaker (stainless steel works best) and shake vigorously with cracked ice. Strain into cocktail glass.


Scarlett O'Hara Cocktail
Makes 1 serving

2 ounces Southern Comfort
3/4 ounce cranberry juice (the regular, sweetened kind is fine)
Juice of 1/4 lime (I know there's a lemon in the photo, but I forgot to take it out...oops!)

Pour into a shaker and stir with cracked ice (no shaking!). Strain into cocktail glass.

These are so delish...I do declare! ;-)
