A cocktail containing blue Jones Soda and Vodka. The Sonic Screwdriver is a variation of the screwdriver cocktail. The name "Sonic Screwdriver" is a reference to the multi-functional tool used by The Doctor in the science-fiction show Doctor Who. "Sonic" may also be in reference to Sonic the Hedgehog due to the character and the drink both being blue. CuraƧao Liqueur mixed with orange juice is also referred to as a Sonic Screwdriver.
Friend: "Awwww man!, we're all out of orange juice"

Me: "It's okay I got Jones Soda, we'll makes some Sonic Screwdrivers"

Friend: "What's that?"

Me: "Only the most delectable cocktail ever created!"

A tool that works very well at opening and closing doors, doesn't work on wood though, that's a shame. It doesn't kill, it doesn't destroy, it doesn't (usually) disintegrate (itself). The Sonic Screwdriver will pop up anywhere in time (Unless you caused the first caveman to hang himself (in that case, silly you)).
"Don't take a Sonic Screwdriver to IKEA, it may work well at defeating a bunch of hostile, liquid aliens but it doesn't work well on flatpack"
