Cocktail: KORBEL Sparkling Screwdriver

The screwdriver – a simple mixture of vodka and orange juice – is a classic cocktail of uncertain origins. Some sources claim a vodka maker created it in the 1930s, while others say a group of American engineers stationed in Turkey in the 1940s concocted the drink to liven up their orange juice.

Whatever its origins, this old favorite lends itself to countless variations. You can put a bubbly twist on the screwdriver using KORBEL and tangerine-flavored vodka. Try it at your next brunch party.
