On Friday, when I got home from work, my dad made me a surprise cocktail. My dad is the coolest, he's always giving me fun food related surprises. It all started when I was little and he would bring me and my siblings doughnuts from Rolling Pin for a surprise breakfast treat. These days he continues to shower me with fabulous foodie finds (last Saturday he came home with a new Spanish Tapas cookbook!) and this drink was definitely a "taste treat" (that's a term my dad invented). It's called a Harvey Wallbanger and was apparently the drink in the 70s. In fact, my mom even called it the cosmo of her time. It's refreshing and delicious, with the taste of a suburban mall's Orange Julius. It's like a jazzed up screwdriver, and would be a nice alternative to a mimosa at a late brunch. If you haven't tried this yet, I highly recommend you make it this evening, so
1 oz vodka
1/2 oz Galliano liqueur
4 oz orange juice
- Pour vodka and orange juice into a collins glass over ice cubes and stir.
