This drink could have been created as one of those "all I got in the bar" drinks. Supposedly, the host of a party in the mid 60's had only vodka, orange juice and Galliano available. After a couple of these drinks a guest named Harvey was found to be banging his head against the wall and cursing the drink that caused him his misery. As such, the Harvey Wallbanger was born and, of course, that is just one story.
No matter how it got its start, this is a great drink that is catching some light again and reminds many of the disco days of the 70's.
