If you didn't figure it out, the Rhett Butler cocktail is named after the classic figure from Gone with the Wind. It doesn't stop here, there is also a Scarlet O'Hara Cocktail and both have the smooth, southern base of Southern Comfort. It's interesting to see that the gentleman's tribute drink is a little more sour than the sweetness of the belle's. Both drinks are great and the pair are perfect for a party's feature drink menu.
