National Harvey Wallbanger Day

On November 8th, National Harvey Wallbanger Day honors a fruity and spirited cocktail made with 3 parts vodka, 1 part Galliano, and 6 parts orange juice. Pour it into a highball glass and garnish it with an orange slice and a maraschino cherry.

The hosts of a chili tasting in San Diego in 1968 served Harvey Wallbangers as well as a tale about the cocktail's origins. All that remained of a Laguna Beach party, according to the article, included vodka, Galliano, and orange juice. Harvey remained, banging his head against the wall when the party-goers left.

Donato ‘duke' antone

Donato 'Duke' Antone, the accepted lore three-time world champion bartender, deserves praise for the cocktail's creation, according to Donato 'Duke' Antone. On Sunset Boulevard in Hollywood, Duke's Blackwatch Bar was operated by him. Antone has earned quite a few awards for popular beverages over the years. His resume as a bartender was impressive – he was the ty Nail, White Russian, and Flaming Russian. According to the bartending wizard, a surfer named Tony Wallbanger inspired the cocktail in 1952. The Laguna Beach party, according to some, is a recreation of Antone's. However, no one has been able to identify the inspiring surfer.

Harvey Wallbanger, a little mystery in the San Diego area until about 1968, remained a little mystery until then. Bill Young, a graphic artist, joined George Bednar, a marketing manager for McKesson Imports Company (the maker of Galliano), in a discussion with graphic artist Bill Young. Their marketing campaign introduced a Harvey Wallbanger character that exploded into commercial success in the late 1960s and 1970s.

The drink's name became a nounion to describe someone who goesofs off or makes mistakes. When politicians or sports stars find themselves in compromising positions, they may be branded Harvey Wallbanger. It's also interesting to note that voters write in Harvey Wallbanger at election time.
