  1. Fill 8 or 12 ounce glass with ice.

This isn't redneck at all! It's actually quite sophisticated tasting.

I used Evan Williams, and I guesstimated the amounts for the ice and the lemon. The lemon is such a nice addition; it takes some of the sweetness out (my usual complaint about screwdrivers).

Thanks for posting!

Mmmmmm... Quite nice drink! I used fresh squeezed orange juice (I'm a classy redneck LOL) and did use the lemon juice. I like this a lot more than a vodka screwdriver. Thanks for the recipe!
