The Oakland Cocktail is like a cross between a Screwdriver and a vodka martini. It mixes vodka with a little dry vermouth and a little orange juice, preferably fresh squeezed.
It’s a strong cocktail with an intriguing flavor from the mix of orange juice and vermouth. Enjoy an Oakland Cocktail next time you’re in the mood for a Screwdriver, and see which one you prefer.
