Screwdriver Cocktail

Rated as 4.88 out of 5 Stars

"This simple mixture of vodka and orange juice reportedly gets its name from original tool used to stir the drink--a screwdriver. You'll get equally good results using a spoon. The screwdriver is a simple but refreshing cocktail made by combining orange juice and vodka over ice."

One of my most favorite cocktails. I like to use Whipped Cream flavored vodka to make this taste like a Creamsicle/Dreamsicle.

I lived on this for the better part of a year when I turned 21!' It was my signature drink. Happy Days!!

Wonderful! I rimmed the glass with decorator sugar crystal gems. Beautiful!

Easy and refreshing.

This drink is really good, its easy to make and it tastes very smooth. I would strongly recommend trying it.

Yummy! i love to get a jar a marachino cherries & pour a little cherry juice and a cherry in it. Or you can use some grenadine its just as good :)

Easy to make and very refreshing.
