Harvey Wallbanger

The Harvey Wallbanger cocktail was invented in 1952 by highly-regarded mixologist Duke Antone.  Supposedly, he named the drink after a Manhattan Beach surfer who was a regular of Duke’s Blackwatch Bar in Hollywood.

I’m generally not a big fan of Galliano, or cocktails with orange juice, but when Duke creates a cocktail, it’s wise to pay attention, as other notable drinks to his credit include the Rusty Nail and the White Russian.


1 1/2 ounces vodka
3/4 ounce Galliano
4 ounces orange juice


Add vodka and orange juice to an ice-filled glass.  Float Galliano on top, and garnish with an orange slice.
