The Screwdriver is a classic drink that has been designated an International Bartender Association official cocktail. The history of the Screwdriver is somewhat debatable, even though mention of it in literature goes back to 1949, when vodka was first gaining traction in the United States. Some claim that the drink was first popularized by American aviators. Another origin story claims that it was made popular by American oil workers in the Persian Gulf, who would secretly dose their OJ with vodka. Supposedly, they dubbed the drink the Screwdriver because they mixed it first with a screwdriver when a spoon was not available.
