The Screwdriver Cocktail is our first cocktail recipe here on The Home Cocktail Club. Its a short and sweet recipe as it only uses two ingredients. The Screwdriver Cocktail was first made by American oil workers out in the Persian gulf in the mid-20th century. While working, they would secretly pour a little vodka into their orange juice and, in the absence of a spoon, they would stir their drinks with a screwdriver – hence the name.
Quite simply, this is Orange Juice & Vodka, you can spice it up by using a flavoured Vodka. For example, we enjoy the Absolut
- One shot of Vodka
- Orange Juice
Screwdriver Cocktail Recipe
- Add a few ice cubes to the bottom of the glass, this will keep the screwdriver cool and make it a refreshing drink.
- Add in the shot (or shots if you enjoy living life dangerously) of Vodka, before filling the glass up with orange juice.
- Give it a stir and garnish with a slice of orange.
