Harvey Wallbanger

With its rather strange name of uncertain origins, this Harvey Wallbanger recipe is a variant on the classic orange and vodka.

Its origins are purported to go back to the 1950s, but it was first mentioned in literature in 1971. Various people have taken credit for its invention and its name, but given how patently ridiculous it is, it was likely a marketing invention thought up by someone trying to sell more vodka or Galiano. It's essentially a screwdriver with Galiano.

Harvey Wallbanger


  • A highball glass
  • 1 double shot of Ciroc vodka
  • 1 tablespoon of Galiano
  • Orange juice to top up
  • Ice
  • Orange and a maraschino cherry to garnish

How to serve it

  • Add the ice to the glass, and pour in the vodka and orange juice.
  • Stir the mixture, and then float the Galiano on top.
  • Garnish with the orange slice and maraschino cherry.

You can subsidy the vodka for tequila to make a Freddy fudpucker, or you can add a shot of peach snaps to make a fuzzy screw up against the wall. As with many of the variants of the screwdriver, when more ingredients are added, the names get progressively more ridiculous until you end up with the long slow comfortable screw up against a cold hard wall with a kiss cocktail. We like to keep it simple with our Harvey Wallbanger recipe.
