Each year on November 8, many people all across the country like to mix 3 parts vodka, 1 part Galliano and 6 parts orange juice, pour it into a highball glass, garnish it with an orange slice and a maraschino cherry and celebrate National Harvey Wallbanger Day.

It has been reported that the Harvey Wallbanger was:

  • Invented in 1952 by three-time-world-champion bartender, Donato ‘Duke’ Antone.

  • Named after a Manhattan Beach surfer who was a regular patron of Duke’s ‘Blackwatch’ Bar on Sunset Blvd. in Hollywood.  

  • Brought to international prominence by Galliano salesman, George Bednar.

To celebrate today,  call some of your friends to get together, have them meet you at your local bar, everyone order a Harvey Wallbanger, raise you glasses and cheers to a Happy National Harvey Wallbanger Day!!  (remember to drink responsibly and NEVER drink and drive!)

 I've never had one. I'm not much of a drinker so I don't have a favorite alcoholic beverage
