Harvey Wallbanger Cocktail

Appearing in the 1960s, there are a few stories of how the Harvey Wallbanger cocktail came to be. My favorite is that it was named after a surfer called Harvey who drank so much he’d bump into the walls.

About

You pour the vodka over ice in a tall glass, then add the orange juice and top it off with Galliano. The drink is named after its inventor, bartender Harvey Wallbanger.

It’s said that he invented it when his regular customers complained about their drinks being too strong because they were getting drunk too quickly. In order to slow them down, he added more fruit juice and less alcohol – which made for an even better tasting cocktail!
