Galliano is the primary ingredient in the Harvey Wallbanger, of course, (named after that giant rabbit from the Jimmy Stewart movie, Harvey, who, according to legend, got totally plowed on Screwdrivers and Galliano while filming and smashed through some scenery, hence the name!), but Galliano is also one of the main ingredients in many other famous cocktails, too.
In fact, HERE'S a little hint, most cocktails with the word "Wall," "Yellow" or "Golden" in the name, PROBABLY contain Galliano.
Yup. Its just that big a deal.
So, get in on it at your home bar with a home-made batch of the stuff, or brew some up for a gift for a Wallbanger enthusiast!
Just make sure to put it in a REALLY long bottle for the full effect!
Oh, by the way, a Slow Comfortable Screw Against the Wall ... is ALSO made with Galliano.
Think about it!
