Slow Screw cocktail

Words by:


Back in the 1980s sexual innuendo named cocktails were at their height of popularity. Today, in the teenies, at a time when the world of cocktails has reached the height of sophistication, cocktails served with a dose of innuendo are as popular as ever.


The Porn Star Martini continues to be the most visited cocktail on Difford's Guide and is being requested by name in the world's most high-end bars (but not always served). As I write this (at the end of February 2015), the 'Slow Comfortable Screw Up Against the Wall' is the 18th most visited cocktail on Difford's Guide, so obviously very popular with the world's drinkers - though, like the Porn Star Martini, perhaps not with the world's bartenders.

So instead of creating another riff on the venerable Last Word, perhaps consider a new variation on the Slow Screw - such as a 'Slow Hard Screw Up Against the Wall with a Porn Star on the Side'.

Thing is, made with freshly squeezed orange juice and quality ingredients the Slow Screw, a variation on the Screwdriver, is not a bad drink.
