Dirty Cocktail of the Week--"How to turn a good Screwdriver into a even better Wallbanger"

It's 5 O'clock on Friday somewhere!! and really why must it be Friday to have a good Cocktail?
This Week's Dirty Cocktail is in keeping with the Mad Men theme. Let's start with a vintage staple of a good ol' Screw...driver. The Screwdriver is relatively simple. All you will need is Vodka and Orange Juice.

  • 1 part Vodka
  • 2 parts Orange Juice
Pour vodka and orange juice over ice in a high ball. Garnish with an Orange Slice.

Now if you want to take that same ol' same ol' one step further, let me introduce you to the Wallbanger, the Harvey Wallbanger.

It is rumored that this vintage drink was named after a local surfer named Harvey, where after losing a surfer competition went to wallow at his favorite local bar. The bartender made him a special drink that had the surfer banging against the walls. The drink was forever known as the Harvey Wallbanger.

The reality is the Harvey Wallbanger just has one special difference from the Screwdriver. All you have to do is add some Galliano and you've given your screwdriver an extra punch!

  • 3/4oz Vodka
  • 1 1/2 oz Orange Juice
  • 1/4 oz Galliano
Pour the vodka and Juice over ice. Stir and float the Galliano on top. Garnish with a orange slice and cherry.

Now not everyone has Galliano around so you can substitute with just about any sweet Liqueur like hazelnut or licorice abstract.

Well there you have it Dirty Bombshells! Will you be enjoying your classic screwdriver or taking it up a notch and trying out the Harvey Wallbanger??
