Harvey Wallbanger

I’m sorry, Mrs. Simpson, but you can’t copyright a drink. This all goes back to the Frank Wallbanger case of ’78. How about that? I looked something up! These books behind me don’t just make the office look good…they’re filled with useful legal tidbits just like that! — Lionel Hutz, “Flaming Moe’s”

The Harvey Wallbanger doesn’t show up much in taverns anymore (not in any of the ones I know about), but it seems like a decent upgrade from your usual screwdriver combo.

Since it’s Friday, and I’m sure this will be the first drink you’ve had all week, let’s run down how to make this classic cocktail:

1 oz vodka

.5 oz Galliano liqueur —>

4 oz orange juice

Stir, ice, consume. You can also apparently “float” additional Galliano on top if your powers will allow it.

While you’re enjoying your tasty beverage, note that the drink was invented in 1952 by journeyman mixologist Donato ‘Duke’ Antone, who also invented such standbys as the Rusty Nail, the White Russian, and the Freddie Fudpucker. They all have hilarious names and are delicious…

Have a good weekend, gang.
