Screwdriver recipe

When you start making the perfect Screwdriver, there are some things you should be aware of to ensure a great tasting experience. First of all, it is essential to use freshly squeezed orange juice, as it gives the drink its authentic, fresh and natural taste. Avoid ready-made orange juice, as it often lacks the true freshness.

When mixing your Screwdriver, you can either shake it with ice in a shaker or simply mix vodka and orange juice in a glass with ice cubes. Both methods work well, but shaking with ice will make for a more chilled and well-mixed drink.


  • 5cl vodka
  • 15cl orangejuice

Origin and History of the Screwdriver

The history of the Screwdriver dates back to the 1940s during the American occupation of Germany. American soldiers stationed in Germany used to mix orange juice with vodka to create a refreshing and easy-drinking cocktail. They often used screwdrivers from their toolboxes to stir the drink, which is said to have given the cocktail its distinctive name.

Another theory about the origin says that the name "Screwdriver" comes from oil workers in the United States. They were told to mix their orange juice with vodka using their screwdrivers while working on oil rigs.
