The Screaming Orgasm Cocktail

A true cocktail of its time, the Screaming Orgasm has fallen from favour in recent years, in favour of more refined drinks, though that does not mean you won’t get asked for them anymore!


Collins Glass


  • ½oz Vodka
  • ½oz Amaretto
  • ½oz Kahlua
  • ½oz Baileys
  • 3oz Half & Half (50/50 Milk & Single Cream mix)


Shake with ice and strain.

Additional Information:

The original Orgasm did not have the Vodka added, and as with other cocktails the vodka appends the name with Screaming (see Screaming Banana Banshee for example) while others note vodka’s addition with other words such as the “Flying Grasshopper”. The drink rose to favour more for its controversial name and the amusement of asking the bartender for a Screaming Orgasm than for its flavour, though it must be said that creamy drinks like this are very popular with female drinkers. Even if you have too nice of a bar to include such a crudely named drink on your menu, make sure you know the screaming orgasm recipe as you’re sure to be asked for one eventually!

Many ice cream drinks are closely related to the screaming orgasm such as the Mudslide.
