Tips for making

  • Try flavored vodka for more flavor. I recommend trying citrus, cherry, or vanilla (if you enjoy the flavor of cream).
  • If you want to add a little sweetness, try adding some pomegranate syrup or simple syrup. Start with half an ounce and add more until you’re satisfied with the flavor.
  • Dilute the flavor of the drink by adding half orange juice and half soda or ginger ale to your drink.
  • If you’re not a fan of orange juice, try this recipe with different juices: cranberry, mango, and pineapple are all delicious options.

date

This drink is said to have originated during the World War II era when soldiers, who were unable to find whisky, mixed several alcoholic beverages with orange juice to make them more enjoyable. Another origin story suggests that auto workers in the United States began adding vodka to their orange juice and using a screwdriver to mix it. We’ll never know for sure how this drink was invented, but these entertaining origin stories always make me smile.

What we know for sure is that in the 1950s and 1960s, vodka began to gain popularity in the United States, and brands like Smirnoff used the screwdriver recipe in advertising to further promote their spirits. Their efforts were met with such huge success that we fast forward over 50 years to see that this cocktail is still one of the most iconic cocktails of all time.
