Friday Night Cocktail


To get you in the London Fashion Week mood, why not try this week's Friday Night Cocktail, the very sophisticated, dramatic and stylish Scarlett O'Hara. This deliciousy crisp cocktail was created way back in 1939 to promote the legendary film Gone with the Wind.

Serves 1

Ingredients - all available from Ocado.com

* 50ml Southern Comfort

* 50ml Cranberry Juice

* 25ml Lime Juice


This cocktail needs to be served deliciously chilled so fill a cocktail shaker with ice. Pour all the ingredients into the cocktail shaker and shake for three minutes until icy cold. Strain into a martini glass and garnish with a small slice of lime. If you want to add that touch of glamour then replace the slice of lime with some of the lime's rind (get using a potato peeler) and twisting it.
