How To Make A Harvey Wallbanger
If you've ever wondered what bars use that triangular bottle of yellow liquor for (Galliano), it's the decidedly disco-era Harvey Wallbanger. In fact, the Wallbanger is one of that decade's iconic drinks. Whether the drink was actually invented in the 1970s is a subject of much debate. One oft-disputed theory places the cocktail's origins in 1950s-era Los Angeles. Another, more reliable origin story, traces the recipe to Galliano's importer, McKesson Imports Company, sometime in the early 1960s. Here's a fact that's not in dispute: a Harvey Wallbanger is CB lingo for a drunk driver.
