We are not trying to reinvent the wheel on this one. Just wanted to share what we think is the best possible combination for the perfect Screwdriver. Beloved by people who eat "brunch" everywhere.
- 1 cup orange juice (Fresh squeezed oranges are always better but not always practical.
- 1/3 cup vodka (we enjoy Tito's Handmade Vodka with this one)
- 1 1/2 ice
Add all ingredeints together. Stir to mix well. Pour and serve cold.
This drink appears in literature as early as 1938.
The screwdriver is mentioned in 1944: "A Screwdriver—a drink compounded of vodka and orange juice and supposedly invented by interned American fliers"; and in 1949: "the latest Yankee concoction of vodka and orange juice, called a 'screwdriver'".
