Screwdriver cocktail, the perfect combination

by Alberto Martínez

The world of cocktails is exciting. Now more than ever we find different types, provided by the bartender?s imagination, the experts in this job. Soft, sweet, with an exotic touch, with alcohol or natural, you choose the one you prefer.

When it comes to talk about the classic and most popular cocktails, the screwdriver takes the top score, mainly because it is very easy to prepare and enjoyed by a great number of people. Come on, you will always be right with it.

In addition, we find it alike all over the world. The screwdriver cocktail consists of mixing vodka and orange juice. First we will put the ice in a cup, then the vodka and fill up the glass with orange juice; it depends on the taste to make it more or less strong.

As for the orange, we can combine it with orange soda for a lighter taste, or add orange juice to taste something more profound. Finally, put a slice of orange and you can also pour the edge of the glass with sugar.

Types of glasses

In this case, this drink accepts being prepared and use different types of glasses, from the Collins glass, to the champagne saucer. It is quite optional really.

Other combinations

To add an extra natural orange touch to the drink, we can add small pieces of orange in the glass, this will give more flavor to a simple mixture. But if you are looking for something different, you have other choices:

  • If you’re looking to give it more intensity, there are those who use Tabasco and thus give a spicy touch and accompany it with some snacks.
  • The Angostura will give a refreshing and bitter taste
  • Even if you are fond of cocktails as an aperitif, a few drops of Worcester sauce will help you get a much tastier screwdriver.

The propper time to consume it

The screwdriver is the most universal of all cocktails. The best time to consume is at night after a nice dinner when we are dancing in a bar or nightclub. But it is very nice after a meal to prevent us from getting “tipsy” since vodka is usually one of the stronger spirits.
