Linking up Over Screwdrivers with a Twist

Contrasting colors? What are those?

Contrasting colors? What are those?

Citrus season has us seeing orange. Here are two simple twists on the classic screwdriver. When oranges are in season these drinks are even better.

Pink Screwdrivers

  • 1 ounce freshly squeezed grapefruit juice
  • 1 ounce freshly squeezed orange juice
  • 1 ounce vodka
  • ice

Pour all ingredients in a glass. Stir. Drink.

Lemony Screwdrivers

  • 2 ounces freshly squeezed orange juice
  • 1 ounce vodka
  • ice
  • drizzle limoncello

Pour juice and vodka over ice in a tumbler. Drizzle in desired amount of limoncello. Drink.

  1. Never thought of limoncello in a screwdriver. Nice idea.

  2. You know I have limoncello! Of course, we have to try this since sister is here and all.

  3. Eva Taylor says:

    Now those are two refreshing cocktails! Cheers.

  4. egg me on says:

    Screw y– no wait, these are awesome! I need to make a bunch of these so I can pretend it’s not snowing up here.

  5. Mad Dog says:

    Nice cocktails!

  6. Bill Peeler says:

    I had a bad experience with screwdrivers in college – have stayed away from them ever since. Limoncello sounds like a good way to class these up.

  7. colormusing says:

    I just recently made my own limoncello (and a batch with oranges and sarsumas), so I will have to try these! The grapefruit sounds delish too!

    Okay you know I’m not a crewdriver person lol. But I have a couple of friends who would LOVE this.

  9. Grand Marnier spiced cookies? Yum!

  10. Thank you so much! I am so glad you loved our Grand Marnier Cookies!
