Harvey Wallbanger

Harvey Wallbanger
3.5 shots out of 5


Remember how a few weeks ago the yucky flu swept through our house?  Yea......well, it's back and badder then ever!  This time it touched every single one of us (6 to be exact).  While some of us escaped the fever, some of us (especially 3 of 4) wasn't so lucky.  Our poor oldest little girl had a fever so high that we spend the other night up giving her half hour barely warm baths to bring down her 105.3 fever.  Thankfully, she seems to have "almost" broken her fever now and we all actually slept through the entire night last night!  Hip hip hooray!!!

I gave today's cocktail 3.5 shots out of 5.  I found a few different recipes for this cocktail, but decided on this one by epicurious.  I chose a Harvey Wallbanger for two reasons. 1) I had just bought a bottle of Galliano before the flu started sweeping through the house and have been dying to use it ever since. 2) since I'm still a bit sick, I figured what's better then alcohol and orange juice to help me feel better!  I have got to say this Galliano is like nothing I've ever tasted before.  The aroma and flavor are very unique.  It's amazing how only a half ounce of this stuff can really change the taste of a vodka and orange juice cocktail........especially when it's just under a tenth of the ingredients mixed in.  This would be a cocktail that I just may make again sometime.

Here is the recipe for a Harvey Wallbanger:

  • 1 1/2 oz vodka
  • 1/2 oz Galliano
  • 4 oz orange juice
In a medium cocktail glass filled with ice, pour in all of your ingredients and give it a nice stir.

Here's to finally being able to make (and taste) a cocktail after a week and a half with sickies in the house.

Cheers!!

  1. I sure hope all of you are feeling better real soon!

    I haven't had a Harvey Wallbanger since I was in college LONG ago - I'm not sure I've seen Galliano in a liquor store for a long time. If I do, I may have to mix one of these up to recapture my misspent youth
