I do wonder if you could call the classic Harvey Wallbanger a breakfast cocktail? With orange juice, this old favourite is said to have been invented by bartender Donato “Duke” Antone for surfer Tom Harvey. The result, well, the cocktail is named the “Harvey Wallbanger” so we’ll let you take a guess!

This mix of orange juice, vodka and Galliano really took flight in the 1970s and soon became a crowd favourite. We knew that this one was a must to add to our archives… and for a brunch wedding? This is just the ticket!


  • 90ml orange juice
  • 30ml vodka
  • 30ml Galliano
  • Ice
  • Orange slice and a maraschino cherry for garnish


  • In a glass, add ice, vodka and orange juice, stir well
  • Slowly, over the back of a spoon add Galliano to the glass so it sits at the top of the drink
  • Garnish with a maraschino cherry and slice of orange
