redneck variation on the screwdriver

Top Review by juniperwoman

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!

  1. Fill 8 or 12 ounce glass with ice.
