Harvey Wallbanger

This is one of our favorite “origin stories.” A party host in the 1960s found that he only had a few ingredients on hand: vodka, frozen orange juice, and Galliano (a vanilla anise liqueur), which he mixed together and served his guests. By early morning the host found one of his guests, by the name of Harvey, miserably banging his head on the wall and blaming the host’s new drink. Our version shown here is a little more nuanced; your walls are safe with us.

Add the vodka and then the orange juice to an ice-filled glass, and float the vanilla anise liqueur on top.
