Tequila Screwdriver Instructions

The Tequila Screwdriver is a classic cocktail that adds a twist to the traditional screwdriver by swapping out vodka for tequila. This refreshing and citrusy drink is perfect for a summer day or for any tequila lover looking to try something new.

Made with just two ingredients, tequila and orange juice, the Tequila Screwdriver is super easy to make. Start by filling a glass with ice and then pour in your desired amount of tequila. For a standard cocktail, one to two ounces of tequila is usually sufficient. Next, top off the glass with fresh orange juice. You can use store-bought orange juice, but freshly squeezed orange juice will take the cocktail to the next level.

To give your Tequila Screwdriver an extra kick, you can add a splash of lime juice or a squeeze of fresh lime. This will add a tangy and zesty element to the drink, balancing out the sweetness of the orange juice. Garnish your cocktail with a slice of orange or a wedge of lime for an extra touch of visual appeal.

Once you have assembled all your ingredients, give the cocktail a gentle stir to combine everything. You can use a cocktail stirrer or a long-handled spoon for this. Take a moment to admire the vibrant orange color of the drink before taking your first sip.

The Tequila Screwdriver is a versatile cocktail that can be enjoyed on its own or paired with a variety of dishes. Its citrusy and refreshing profile makes it a great choice to accompany brunch or a light lunch. If you're feeling adventurous, you can also experiment with different types of tequila to find your preferred flavor profile.

So next time you're in the mood for a simple yet delicious cocktail, give the Tequila Screwdriver a try. With its bold flavors and easy preparation, it's a cocktail that will surely impress.

Best served in a Collins Glass.
