Make your own Screwdriver cocktail at home - It's cheap and easy
No need to spend money in a club
It's no secret that partying in Nairobi is no cheap affair. By the time you're factoring in cab fare to and from the club, buying over priced drinks and that ka-chicken meal that you must buy on your way back home, you've spent three ngwanyes, just like that! And, it's not like the night out was any fun. First of all, all the night clubs are crowded AF and the only music they play all night is Nigerian. You actually end up feeling like you're in a mini Lagos. Not to mention that it's literally the same crowd, same DJs same old boring play list etc. You know what? You're better off saving your money and chilling at home, as you enjoy your own play list and drinks.
And since I'm giving you that advice, I might as well tell you how you can make a super easy cocktail at home with any vodka mzinga, the best being Smirnoff. Having bae over this weekend? Surprise her with your never seen before bartender skills by making world's easiest cocktail, none other than the Screwdriver cocktail.
The beauty of the Screwdriver is that not only is it super easy to make, but also the fact that it's just the right balance of freshness and sweetness. It's especially perfect for someone looking to get just slightly tipsy and enjoy the drink while at it. Nothing bitter and stuff...
Here's how to make the screwdriver.
You will need:
1. About three ripe and sweet oranges.
If you don't have oranges, you can use packet orange juice albeit it's best to use freshly squeezed orange juice for a better, fresher outcome.
2. A double tot of vodka.
3. Ice cubes
3. A slice of orange to garnish.
1. Into a long glass, put at least two chunky ice cubes, followed by the orange juice, which you will sieve to remove the pulp. Then, add the vodka and garnish with a slice of lemon. You wanna ensure that the ratio of juice to vodka is 2 to 1 respectively.
2. Serve cold with a straw.
