If you asked me what my favorite meal is, I'd have to say brunch. It's not something I have the pleasure of enjoying every day, but when I do have the opportunity to sit down and dish with my ladies over a leisurely brunch, I jump at it. The hubs and I have been known to put away our fare share of brunches as well, so as you can imagine, I'm fairly well versed in "morning" cocktails.
I'm a total Bloody Mary girl at heart and I've definitely sipped on a screwdriver or two, but since embarking on my new cocktail makin' journey here at Momtrends, I've found myself wanting to expand my go-to brunch drink options. I mean, I'm all about options...whether we're talking drinks or dresses. Who's with me?
Like I said, the Screwdriver is a classic cocktail that will never go out of style, but why not dress it up a little? This take on the screwdriver adds maraschino cherry juice for a festive splash of color and extra bit of sweetness. I'm the kind of girl that needs to mask the flavor of liquor with a mixer...unless we're talking about tequila. That's a whole other story. Haha! Remember my grapefruit tequila cocktail? It's so SO good...but I digress. Let's talk about how to make this dressed up Screwdriver. As with most of my favorite drinks, it only requires a few ingredients...
2 oz. orange juice
1/2 oz. maraschino cherry juice
cherry for garnish
Add all the ingredients to a shaker with ice and shake it up! You could also serve it over ice. The goal here is to serve it nice and cold! Finally, add a cherry for garnish and enjoy!
