Happy Hour Tuesday: Limoncello Screwdriver

Rometti Limoncello - Happy Hour Tuesday - Limoncello ScrewdriverHappy Hour Tuesday!

As the sunny season leaves the spotlight to a cloudy sky and weekly showers, we better stock up with vitamins to avoid getting sick before wintertime! The drink of this week other than being delicious is also a source of vitamin C thanks to the presence of fresh orange juice, Limoncello Screwdriver. You will love the citrusy taste especially during the Fall season, however we do have to recommend not to abuse it, it will not substitute your daily vitamin intake!

The classic Screwdriver is served in a highball glass and combines two very simple ingredients, orange juice and vodka. Its name seems to have originated in Saudi Arabia, where American petroleum engineers used to add vodka to their orange juice and stir it with screwdrivers.

If you are one of those people who see the Fall as a new beginning, make sure to sip on our Limoncello Screwdriver as you put away your bathing suits and write down the resolution for the new season. The sweetness of limoncello and the slightly bitterness of the orange juice mixed with vodka will wake up your senses at every sip of this reinvigorating drink.

Ingredients:

2 oz Vodka
5 oz Fresh orange juice
1 oz Rometti Limoncello
1 Orange slice
Ice cubes

Fill the highball glass with ice cubes. Pour vodka, orange juice and Rometti Limoncello over the ice and stir. Garnish with an orange slice and serve.

~ENJOY!
