Why is the Screwdriver so called?

A quintessential drink that is as refreshing as it is forbidden. Legend has it that the name “screwdriver” was a code word among American soldiers to fool federal agents during World War II. Alcohol was forbidden during battle days… however, after work, soldiers would drink a mixture of orange juice with a little vodka and since they didn’t have a stick to shake it with, they used the word “screwdriver” as a password.

Ingredients of the Screwdriver for one person:

  • 50 ml De Cajon vodka
  • Juice of an orange
  • Slice and rind of orange or lemon
  • Ice cubes
  • Optional: Cherry or cherry
