You know, for a guy who doesn’t care for whiskey, Tom has sure been drinking a lot of it lately!

This is the Scarlett O’Hara, from my recent eBay score from 1941, a wooden drink book called “Here’s How”.

It seriously has the BEST illustrations. And as soon as I pick up another bottle of curacao, we are going to be making the Rhett Buttler!

We didn’t have regular canned peaches, so we made do with spiced peaches. But since this drink is named after a Southern belle, I think we can get away with it. Just this once.

We also didn’t have a “saucer champagne” glass, so we had to make due with a regular one!

Impressed by the insane red color of the drink? Yeah, all I had on hand was my hardcore red food coloring for frostings, so it ended up very, very red.

“Is it good?”

“Actually, yeah. It’s pretty refreshing. And very, very, red.”

“Sorry.”

The Verdict: Refreshing

From the Tasting Notes:

Surprisingly refreshing, and didn’t end up tasting like canned peaches, which is what I was afraid of. Had almost a tropical flavor and was very nice blended with the ice, especially on a hot day.
