Enchanted Rock vodka. This drink carries a bit of nostalgia for me. Harvey Wallbangers were my parents’ summer go-to cocktail in the 70’s, and they would let me have the virgin version with just the orange juice and drizzle of Galliano. I never had the grown-up version until this night, and I’m so glad I did. Galliano does something wonderful to orange juice that I just can’t put my finger on. The anise, maybe, or the vanilla? Vodka doesn’t add much flavor. I ended up ordering two of these lovely classic cocktails, and I’m likely to order many more this summer.
