Even if you don’t know the Vodka Screwdriver cocktail, you have probably already drunk this cocktail once as a mix. It is in fact the cocktail name for the well-known mixed drink vodka – gravy. The name comes from the American expatriates who worked in the oil industry in the strictly religious Dubai. Between breaks, they secretly mixed their drink (orange juice) with vodka. You guessed it, they stirred it with their screwdrivers. Hence the name!
1.5 parts Amsterdam Republic Premium Vodka
3 parts Orange juice
1 part = 30 ml
Let’s make an Vodka Screwdriver cocktail
The Vodka Screwdriver is a simple cocktail to make and is usually poured and stirred with a long screwdriver, a long spoon is also allowed of course, in a long drink glass. Take the ice cubes, 1.5 parts vodka. 3 parts orange juice (preferably freshly squeezed). Shake vigorously and pour into your cocktail glass. Garnish with a fresh orange slice.
PS: personally I prefer to drink my Screwdriver in style from a martini glass. In that case, the screwdriver can just stay in the toolbox.
