Screwdriver Cocktail

Rated as 4.89 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!

I've made this cocktail often. I see no need to change anything. "If it ain't broke, no need to fix it.""

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.
