COCKTAIL : THE SCREWDRIVER

Cocktail time- The Screwdriver

It is now 2 weeks since we came back from Spain and we went straight into the school routine, timetables… all that. Routine is good, especially when you have kids. I like structure, knowing what we are doing and when,and because our schedule is so tight during winter, I love throwing it all out the window in the summer and going with the flow, and I then am happy to go back to our routine.

Part of our winter routine is our Friday ritual. The kids have cinema night, which involves home-made pizza, smoothie, pop-corn and hot chocolate with marshmallows, and the adults have cocktails in the kitchen.

Tonight’s cocktails is one of my favorites:  a Screwdriver. This is my cocktail of choice in Spain so it has a lot of sunny and lovely memories attached to it.

Add the vodka, the juice of one orange and fill it up with fizzy orange. Stir carefully, decorate and enjoy!

The purists will have the Screwdriver with just vodka and orange juice but I like mixing fresh orange juice with some fizzy orange – that is how they serve it in Spain and that is how I like it. If you want to go the purist route, just fill the glass up with orange juice. I won’t judge you, I promise. 😉
