    Josh Dubois: Hi! I am Josh Dubois and today we are making vodka drinks, and right now I am going to show you how to make a screwdriver.

    Now, this drink is very, very, very easy. Its one of the easiest drinks to make. All you want to do is take your serving glass; you are going to be serving it in. You are going to fill it to the top with ice, all the way to the top. Next, you are going to take two ounces of vodka, one, two three, four, or about a shots worth. You are going to fill the rest of your glass with orange juice. The reason I say fill up rather than give you a measurement is you just want to fill it to the top, because you dont want to serve a drink thats not been filled all the way up to the top.

    Next, take your shaker tin, cap it, flip it, flip it back. Do that just to mix up the vodka in there. Then take a straw and serve. Thats how you make a screwdriver.
