How to Make a Harvey Wallbanger

The best thing about the Harvey Wallbanger is the hint of vanilla with the orange. To make this cocktail is super easy and takes only a minute or two.

Ingredients in a Harvey Wallbanger

You will need the following three ingredients to make the Harvey Wallbanger:

  • Oranges (or orange juice)
  • Vodka
  • Galliano

Mixing the Cocktail

  1. To make this cocktail, simply squeeze the orange of approximately two oranges into a Boston Shaker (or similar cocktail shaker) with a couple of ice cubes.. Sometimes, I also squeeze that juice of a small nectarine as well for an extra bit of flavour.
  2. You will then add in two ounces of vodka and 1 ounce of Galliano (which is a vanilla liqueur). Give it a shake until the shaker is cold to the touch.
  3. Pour into a cocktail glass and garnish with an orange slice / swizzle stick or other decorations. Serve with or without ice.

What Does Galliano Taste Like?

Galliano tastes like vanilla with a hint of anise to it, so basically a Harvey Wallbanger tastes like a vanilla screwdriver drink!

The glasses you see above are vintage rooster glasses that I picked up on an antiquing trip and are part of my vintage bar ware collection. You can see more of my glasses (and cocktails) on my Instagram @mrkitchenmagpie.
