Harvey Wallbanger

Harvey Wallbanger cocktail with Galliano and orange juice

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.

Ingredients

Instructions

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

Cocktail Party app on tablets and phones

Get the App

The Cocktail Party app puts this drink – and hundreds more – in your pocket, and tells you what you can make from the ingredients you have at home. It's the best $3.99 you'll ever spend on a drink.

Game Changer

This is a game changer. When you're at the liquor store, thinking, "Yeah, ok fine what does Ancho Reyes liquor get me?" you open the app, look up Chile liquor and see that it gets you like 11 new cocktails. This is addictive, and indeed worth the price. We're having a blast under quarantine. While some of the ingredients are kind of anonymous, the icons look like the Campari bottle, and the descriptions often tell you if Campari will work or if you need Aperol. If you <3 cocktails, get this.
