Let’s learn how to make the screwdriver cocktail recipe utilizing fresh squeezed orange juice. You can use bottled juice if you want, but we suggest the fresh stuff for a screwdriver to taste fantastic.
We count the screwdriver amongst the most basic and most important recipes for your bartending 101 book. The history behind the screwdriver cocktail recipe apparently starts with a quick-to-make vodka cocktail with orange juice that was mixed with a screwdriver because that was what was available at the time.
Our screwdriver recipe isn’t mixed with an actual screwdriver tool, and it actually requires very few bar tools as well. The Screwdriver tastes bests when made with a craft cocktail style in mind: fresh squeezed orange juice.
The beauty of a fresh squeezed orange juice based screwdriver drink is the simplicity; vodka cocktails don’t often use the base spirit (vodka) to bring out any accented notes outside of pure alcohol. So, how do you make a normal screwdriver mixed drink taste like a fantastic screwdriver cocktail? The magic is in the juice.
Clear ice doesn’t hurt either. Take the time to create the proper screwdriver cocktail at home and you’ll appreciate them even more after you’ve been to the bar and found that the bartender didn’t follow their bartending 101 guide to mixing the perfect screwdriver.
– 1 ½ oz. / 50ml Vodka
