Screwdriver Drink

The Screwdriver Drink is an easy drink to mix by the glass or make a pitcher for parties. A refreshing and delicious combination of orange juice and vodka and we like to add in peach schnapps for a fuzzy screwdriver that everyone loves.

The Fuzzy Screwdriver or Hairy Navel is a combination of the classic screwdriver drink mixed with a fuzzy navel. Both cocktails have an orange juice base and we’ve combined it with vodka and a splash of peach schnapps for a delicious flavor combo!

I almost always have the ingredients for screwdriver drinks on hand and it’s so easy to make by the glass for one of the best vodka cocktails. It is a mash up of two favorites, the classic screwdriver cocktail and the fuzzy navel.

I love easy cocktails and it doesn’t get any easier than a two-ingredient screwdriver drink recipe. Adding the peach flavor is optional and with just a few simple ingredients and just minutes to make, it’s always a great option. 

Personally I prefer to call this cocktail a fuzzy screwdriver over a hairy navel, which doesn’t sound like an appealing drink. I always seem to get corrected when I share on social media, call it what you will, it’s a refreshing drink.

  1. Delicious!! I struggled with the conversions a bit, before I figured out that this was for 1 drink. We were making pitchers for a party, so I just increased all of the ingredients 8-fold. I will definitely be making this one again! Yum!
