Food historians write that the Southern Belle Cocktail, or Scarlett O’ Hara Cocktail, was either created for the opening of “Gone With The Wind” in 1939 or by Ocean Spray in the 1950s to promote their cranberry juice. Whatever the origin it has been a popular cocktail for Southerners for years.

As well, Southern Comfort has particularly been a favorite of Southerners in cocktail recipes.
