Screwdriver. 1 part #vodka to 2 parts #orange juice. Combine over #ice in a #highball glass and drink up. #screwdriver #mixology #drinktonight #cocktails
God made vodka for the Screwdriver.  Sure, any fruit juice and vodka is great. Really great.  But fresh orange juice and cold vodka is one of those magical combinations where the whole really is greater than the sum of the parts.  Just like when peanut butter meets jelly, or when pretzels meet chocolate, or french fries meet milkshakes.  Something special happens when the two combine, as is the case here.The Screwdriver is one of my dad’s favorites, too.  And he is pickier than most about the ingredients.  Not the vodka so much, as would be normal, but about the orange juice.  Once he ordered one at a restaurant and inquired about the orange juice they were going to be using (Florida’s Natural is the best according to him) rather than the vodka.

Soco, soda, & lime.  Simple to make. Refreshing for summer. 1.5 oz #southerncomfort floated on top of seltzer with a generous squeeze of #fresh #lime #juice.  I am not really a fan of #soco, but diluted like this is tolerable. That said, if #socoandlime is your go-to drink (I’m looking at you, sorority girls) then this would be perfect. #cocktails #mixology #drinks #drinktonight #summer

For the freshest #summer #cocktails, the best tip you can follow? Grow your own mint! This baby plant started from seed last summer and had a few leaves, but survived this year’s long Pennsylvania winter outside.   Not only is it economical (more mint than you know what to do with for about $2), but you can pick it as you need it for drinks and don’t have to worry about wilting. #mint #mojitos #drinks #mixology #diy #spearmint #peppermint #gardening

 3 parts banana liquer 4 parts vodka 8 parts oj. Mix together over ice & serve.
As prepared its a little too #sweet for our tastes, so a splash of lime juice added a perfect balance of #acidity. Even though spring just started, this brings up images of the beach, sun, and #summertime.

Combine ingredients in cocktail shaker filled with ice. Shake well and strain into chilled coupe. Top with #maraschino #cherry.
 This cocktail is excellent and well balanced, but definitely on the sweeter side. Would be amazing frozen/blender style for summer parties.
