How to make a Screwdriver cocktail

Your rating: None Average: 5 (1 vote)
Named after the common DIY tool the screwdriver, as workmen used to use theirs to stir their 'juice flasks', which contained vodka too!!
What you'll need: 
50ml Vodka
100ml Orange Juice
Tall glass
Fill the tall glass with ice.
Add vodka and orange juice to the glass.
Stir with a spoon (or a screwdriver if you want to be truly authentic)
As an ex-bartender, I can tell you that a lot of people enjoy coming to bars and asking for a screwdriver. These people are generally irritating as it's simply a large vodka and orange...and they just want to make it seem like they're cleverer than you! Never be caught out again!
