Sloe Screwdriver Cocktail Recipe

An easy-to-make, popular orange juice and sloe gin cocktail, the sloe screwdriver (commonly misspelled “slow”) is a popular highball made with sloe gin. You may be able to prepare this drink if you can mix up a screwdriver, except that there is no vodka in it. Sloe Gin Cocktails are definitely one of the most popular cocktails, and they are fun retro drinks. Cocktails were sweet, fruity, and often had odd (sometimes inappropriate) names in the late 20th-century bar scene. However, it’s fun and quite tasty, with sloe berry liqueur balanced by the tartness of acidic orange juice. It’s perfect for brunch. Besides adding things like brandy, Galliano, rum, and tequila, there’s also a whole lineup of screwdriver cocktails available. Pay close attention to the names of those if you sometimes have trouble remembering the ingredients. There is always another popular drink from those days that might lead to the answer.
