ST. PATRICK'S DAY MARTINIS - Scarlett O'Hara Martini

The Whiskey Sour gets a touch of Tara

Think of the color of Scarlett's eyes, add a little whiskey for her spirit, a little sugar for her charm and some lime for her tart tongue and you have the Scarlett O'Hara Martini. I've taken a whiskey sour and given it a little bit of Ireland, the Old South and Hollywood in one glass.

This martini is dedicated to the most famous Irish movie character ever to grace the silver screen and my favorite movie heroine, Scarlett O'Hara.  I was practically weaned on Gone With the Wind and it is still my favorite movie of all time, so I can't let St. Patrick's Day go by without a nod to this infamous Irish Southern Belle.

It goes without saying that the Tara's Theme, also known as My Own True Love, is one of my favorite songs of all time. Most of you are probably familiar with this iconic song, but how many of you knew that this song, originally written by Max Steiner, had lyrics?  Fiddle Dee Dee - you don't know nothin' bout no lyrics?? Well, sing these to the theme below:

My own true love
My own true love
At last Ive found you
My own true love

No lips but yours
No arms but yours
Will ever lead me
Through Heavens doors

I roamed the Earth
In search of this
I knew Id know you
Know you by your kiss

And by your kiss
You've shown true love
I'm yours forever
My own true love
My own true love

Admittedly, the lyrics are not on the same level as the music itself but after a few Scarlett O'Hara martinis, frankly, my dear, you probably won't give a damn!
