Sorry that cocktail day is one day late. It was Dana’s Birthday yesterday and we had to celebrate in style. However, today I am making a traditional cocktail. It is on the same lines with a screwdriver, but with a little twist. A little OJ, a little vodka, some amaretto and a touch of seltzer. This cocktail is a tad more refined than the traditional screwdriver. Plus, it has a little bubbly kick.
The Bocce Ball
- 1 1/2 oz vodka
- 1/2 oz amaretto
- 4 oz orange juice
- 1 oz seltzer
Fill a rocks glass with ice. Add the vodka and amaretto. Cover with the orange juice and finally top with the seltzer.
This drink is a nice refined twist on the traditional. It adds the sweet kick of amaretto, but cuts the sweetness with a little seltzer. Plus the fizz gives you another layer of flavor. When the bubbles pop you get the aroma blasted into your nose.
It is a great cocktail.
