Short: 1970s – THE HARVEY WALLBANGER

AOD_Wallbanger_show_slug_small_IMG_1614Short: 1970s – The Harvey Wallbanger
with the full Army of Drunks

Return with us to the 1970s —  an era of bell-bottoms, key parties, and generally terribly cocktails — to discover the Harvey Wallbanger, the most refreshing summer drink with the most fictionalized history in all of bartending.  The Army of Drunks asks the burning question: How can a cocktail made of so many lies take so damn delicious?

We also delve into the cocktail’s inherent dichotomy:  Is Wallbanger is a girlie drink or a manly drink?  And play along at home as Eric challenges everyone to “Real Cocktail or Real Canadian?”  (Note: We clearly lost track of the score.  Sorry about that.  We were drunk.)

DRINK ALONG AT HOME!
The Harvey Wallbanger

  • 1 1/2 oz. (3 parts) vodka
  • 3 oz (6 parts) orange juice
  • 1/2 oz (1 part) Galliano (a.k.a. Liquore Galliano L’Autentico, if you want to be that way.)

Stir the vodka, orange juice and ice in a highball glass.  Float the Galliano on the top.  Garnish with an orange slice and serve outside on the lawn.

(Optional: Place all car keys in a bowl.  Blindly draw a set of keys from said bowl.  Match the keys with the car-owner.  Have awkward “swinging” sex with that person.)
