Monkey Gland on National Harvey Wallbanger Day Because Fuck Galliano
Shake everything with ice and strain into a chilled Coupe Glass. Garnish with an Orange Peel.
As we’re closing in on the year of Calendar Cocktails we come across National Harvey Wallbanger Day and I’m copping out of this one. It’s a sickeningly terrible drink made with an wretchedly awful liqueur that has a decidedly unappetizing name. If you can’t tell, I rather dislike Galliano and can’t really justify getting a bottle just to make a drink I also rather dislike. Instead I made a nice Monkey Gland because it similarly uses Orange Juice and, well, it has Absinthe. I, of course, felt the need to uses Monkey 47 Gin and St. George Absinthe because… Monkeys.
I have nothing more to add about the Harvey Wallbanger or Galliano but here is a decent read if you’d like. How the Harvey Wallbanger nearly killed the craft of cocktail making.
