This Harvey Wallbanger Cocktail recipe is our slight twist on the classic, so we’re calling it the Harvey Headbanger as one too many and you may end up with a sore head. We’ve hopefully made it a bit easy to make with ingredients that you may have at home as we know not everyone may have Galliano which is a vanilla-anise liqueur.

The Harvey Wallbanger is a twist itself on the classic screwdriver (Vodka & Orange Juice) with the addition of Galliano. It was developed in 1969 as a marketing campaign by McKensson Imports Company, who were the importers of the Italian Liqueur, as a means of driving sales for it. The creation of the cocktail was credited to world mixologist champion and cocktail consultant Donato Antone, who also came up with the Freddy Fudpucker which switches the vodka for tequila.
