Do you shake screwdriver?
Whilst originally stirred with a screwdriver (out of necessity, not for taste!), the Screwdriver cocktail is simply a mix of vodka and orange juice, so it can be shaken or stirred.
I personally find shaking it improves the taste slightly – but as it generally involves a bit more fuss so I usually just stir a Screwdriver cocktail like the recipe above.
