  Sunday Cocktail Recipe
A screwdriver is not just orange juice with a shot of vodka in it. At least, not if you do it right. Here's my Screwdriver de Luxe:

Get a large (13-14oz) highball glass. Cut a wedge of orange and rub it round the rim. Lightly sugar the rim. In a cocktail shaker, mix a handful of ice cubes, three ounces of good orange vodka (Absolut Mandrin or Stoli Oranj are perfect), 1/2 oz of Cointreau, 1oz of Seville orange juice and 7oz of orange juice (fresh-squeezed if you can get it, but under no accounts any brand with added sugar). Shake vigorously et voilá!

Alternatively, you can put all the ingredients into a blender and mix on high for 30 seconds or so. This whisks in air bubbles and crushes the ice and makes a delicious Screwdriver Smoothie. The Seville orange juice (often sold in Latino stores as Naranja Agria) offsets the sweetness of the other ingredients.
