Everyone seems to have heard of a Harvey Wallbanger, and the name has become synonymous with over-indulgence. Truckers refer to drunk drivers as “Harvey Wallbangers”, and the drink has been mentioned in countless movies and television programs. With that kind of reputation, you’d think it would pack the alcohol of a Long Island Iced Tea or a Zombie. In fact, the drink is actually pretty tame.

This International Bar Tender’s Association Contemporary Classic is really just a classic Screwdriver with a twist. The addition of Galliano gives it a soft herbal flavour with the liqueur’s hallmark vanilla finish.

Harvey Wallbangers were incredibly popular in the 1970s and were part of the Tiki bar beach culture. You’ll still find them served in Tiki mugs with umbrellas and exotic decorations throughout the Caribbean Islands.

If you’re a Tequila fan, you may prefer to try the Freddy Fudpucker. It’s the same drink, but made with Tequila instead of Vodka. The key to making either cocktail is taking the time to use fresh squeezed oranges. There’s no substitute for the pulp and flavour of the real thing, so if you want to take a trip back in time and sample the taste of the seventies, make sure to do it right.

Here’s the recipe for a Harvey Wallbanger cocktail:

Ingredients

  • 45ml Vodka
  • 15ml Galliano
  • 90ml Orange Juice
  • Orange wedge to garnish

  1. Fill a highball glass with ice
  2. Add the vodka and orange juice and stir gently
