Thirsty Thursday

I've been away, scouting about the bars of another city! (No really, I've been away with WORK. But of course, you guessed that.)

Still, no time like the present to relieve one's thirst, I always say.

Rhett Butler

30ml orange curacao
30ml Southern Comfort
15ml fresh lemon juice
15ml fresh lime juice
soda water

Pour curacao, Southern Comfort, juices and ice into a shaker...shaaaaaake, then pour into a highball glass. Top with soda water. Garnish with an orange slice and mint leaves.

Guaranteed to make you not give a damn, my dears.If you want to relive a real "Gone with the wind" experience, have this with onion rings.

Jeeves! I say, Jeeves! Might be time to trade you in, old man!

I have only lemon, lime, mint and ice on hand and that gives me no comfort, southern or otherwise. I've also never been able to watch GWTW from start to finish, so was happy to have the encapsulated musical version you provided.

Steve- oh no, poor Jeeves! Unless you're giving Berty Wooster a chance??

Louciao- I've never had the constitution required to watch GWTW all the way thru either! And I'm a big fan of Etta's so it was a great chance really...

It might have been two decades since last I had a glass of Southern Comfort ...
Please have a good Friday.
