Traditionally a simple combination of vodka and orange juice, this version turns heads with its striking visual appeal by incorporating black vodka, creating a layered effect that's as delightful to look at as it is to sip. The rich, citrus flavor of orange juice provides a familiar base, while the black vodka adds a mysterious and smooth edge to the drink. Served in a highball glass and often garnished with a licorice stick, the Screwed Up Screwdriver offers a playful yet sophisticated experience ideal for those looking to try something out of the ordinary in their cocktail repertoire.

SERVING_SUGGESTIONS

What is the best way to serve the Screwed Up Screwdriver?
