November 8th is Harvey Wallbanger Day

The Harvey Wallbanger was invented in 1952 by three-times world champion mixologist Donato ‘Duke’ Antone, the brother-in-law of New York state senator Carlo Lanzillotti. The 1982 Milwaukee Brewers, winners of the American League pennant, were nicknamed “Harvey’s Wallbangers,” because of the team’s nickname and its manager, Harvey Kuenn.

The Harvey Wallbanger is an alcoholic beverage or cocktail made with vodka, Galliano, and orange juice. This drink is served “On the rocks”; poured over ice and garnished with a orange slice and maraschino cherry. This drink is usually served in a Highball glass.

3 parts Vodka                      1 part Vanilla Galliano             6 parts Fresh orange juice

Mix the vodka and orange juice in the glass, then float the Vanilla Galliano on top.
