The Harvey Wallbanger is a quintessentially 70s cocktail and will round out our trip to the disco era. The origin of this one is likely a marketing ploy to add a bit of exotic character to a standard screwdriver.
The key ingredient in this one, Galliano, is an Italian liqueur based on anise and vanilla. You'll see the distinctive bottle gathering dust on bar shelves everywhere.
Pour orange juice and vodka into a collins glass over ice. Stir with a long bar spoon. Pour the Galliano carefully over the back of the spoon — it should float atop the drink. Garnish with a orange wedge and a cherry.
