Bartender’s tips and advice

  • If possible use fresh squeezed orange juice for the Harvey Wallbanger. There´s at least 1 1/2 oz. (= 4,5 cl = 1 shot) of juice in every orange.
  • The history of the Harvey Wallbanger is based on the coast of California. When the Californian surfer with the name Harvey was disqualified in a surfing competition he went to a bar and drank a mix of Vodka, Galliano and Orange Juice to deal with the frustration. Being totally frustrated about the end of the competition at some point he even hit his head on the wall of bar…
  • If you leave out the ingredient Galliano you’ll end up with the Screw Driver cocktail.
