According to "The Art of Spanish Cooking" where I found this recipe, sherry does miraculous things to orange juice. In the USA, this drink is called a Spanish screwdriver. In Spain, a dry sherry would be used, but sweeter types are also good. Any convenient proportions can be used, and a combination of orange juice and soda can be substituted for the juice.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 12 ounces sherry wine (1 jigger or shot)
  • 1 cup orange juice


  1. Pour the sherry over a few ice cubes.
  2. Fill the glass with orange juice.
  3. Enjoy!

This was very good! I normally only cook with it and although some peeps drink it straight. I have always found it to be too strong, but this combo was just right! Loved the flavor! Made for Photo tag.

First time I've ever drank sherry, I've always just cooked with it. I think it mixed well with the orange juice, although I think I still prefer my vodka and OJ. LOL. Made for ZWT8.
