The Cranberry Screwdriver

It’s Friyay, y’all! And you know what that means; happy hour is almost upon us. Obviously, happy hour can be applied to any day of the week. Don’t feel bad if, like me, you’ve been hitting patio season hard lately. This being said, there’s something about that first end-of-the-work-week drink that somehow tastes better. It’s like sipping on fucking freedom. To celebrate the arrival of the weekend, I’ve decide to post a twist on the traditional Screwdriver. Now, let me be very honest with you for a minute. The Screwdriver was one of the first cocktails that I ever drank – and subsequently puked – as a teen and the drink in its original form still makes me mega queasy to this day. (Just another reason not to drink underage, folks; you could potentially ruin a perfectly good cocktail for yourself 20 years down the line.) Anyhow, I DO like vodka crans so I felt there was merit in merging the two. I’m happy to report that these Cranberry Screwdrivers were not only delicious but also didn’t land me face first in the porcelain throne. Win-win! Scroll below to find how I made them and enjoy one (or several) for yourself.

Here’s what you’ll need:

  • 3 oz of fresh orange juice (or store bought, but fresh is better)
  • 3 oz of cranberry juice
  • 3 oz of Vodka
  • 1 oz of Grand Marnier
  • Ice

Here’s what you’ll do:

  1. Combine all ingredients in a tall, iced filled glass, stir and enjoy!
