It’s Cocktail Friday
“Have you ever tried a slow comfortable screw?” I was asked that this week.
Flicking my hair, “I beg your pardon?” thinking I was finally getting the come on (it’s been a while so I was just about to get the WD40 ready that I have on emergency standby).
“It’s a cocktail” was the reply I got. God damn it, thought I’d pulled.
Joking aside I’d not heard of it so I thought fantastic that will be this weeks recipe for Cocktail Friday! A slow comfortable screw cocktail recipe coming your way.
I didn’t have a bloody clue what was in it; probably because I was still having visions of bedding George Clooney or some other gorgeous stud muffin so ended up having a good google as you do and this is what I found. Just for you a slow comfortable screw cocktail recipe to enjoy.

Top with Orange Juice
1. Fill a collins glass with ice and pour over slow gin, southern comfort, and vodka.

Variations of the Sloe Screw
