Harvey Wallbanger

If you grew up in the ’70s/’80s, the first you heard of a Harvey Wallbanger may have been as a pun on a sitcom. This cocktail was in vogue for a while in the ’70s, but it faded into obscurity after that. It’s basically a screwdriver with Galliano, a liqueur which tastes mainly like vanilla with anise, but also has citrus and other herbal notes – a very complicated flavor. It’s definitely something you have to try before you’ll know if you like it, so if you’ve never had Galliano, you may want to order a Harvey Wallbanger at a bar before buying the Galliano to make it at home.
