Screwdriver

Screwdriver cocktail with vodka and orange juice

The earliest written reference made of this drink appeared in an issue of Time magazine from 1949, and casts the Screwdriver in a cooler light than we thought possible: “In the dimly lighted bar of the sleek Park Hotel, Turkish intelligence agents mingle with American engineers and Balkan refugees, drinking the latest Yankee concoction of vodka and orange juice, called a ‘screwdriver’.”

Since it’s such a simple drink, it’s a great canvas for experimentation with a variety of flavored vodkas. It’s also tasty with any type of gin you have, although there isn’t a special name for it (as far as we know).

The Cocktail Party app puts this drink – and hundreds more – in your pocket, and tells you what you can make from the ingredients you have at home. It's the best $3.99 you'll ever spend on a drink.

Great app!

Yes! The latest update has fixed the bugs that annoyed me and added the features I was after. Love the curated list of cocktails! My favorite cocktail app (and I've tried a few).
