Pocket Rocket recipe
Scan me to take me with you
This drink was invented by Chuck Nourse in Van Dyne, Wisconsin when the local bar ran out of orange juice to make Screwdrivers. The clever bartender substituted Orange Hooch (now defunct), getting Chuck very drunk to which he declared the drink "puts a rocket in your pocket!". The drink was then made famous in Eau Claire, WI on the UWEC campus, and is also a mainstay in the Eagle River, WI and Minneapolis, MN areas.
In a pint sized glass filled with ice, pour the glass half full of vodka and then top with mix. Orange mixes best, with berry flavors also a favorable option. Skyy vodka is preferred, as it mixes well and is not overly expensive for the quantities used in this type of drink.
