Stan Jones smiles upon this post.

I can't bring myself to buying the new/old formulation until I clear my half bottle of pre-re-release one. Especially since we don't use it too often.

Bars had a major resurgence here about a year and a half ago where I had a few Galliano drinks in a short period of time. There was a big push by the rep to get a drink on the menu (and after that short period of time, it dropped off pretty quickly).

in the spirit of making you happy and keeping you employed, dear Camper, allow me to share a cocktail i made to capture the essence of both the 70's fern bar AND the modern cocktail movement in one:

The Great Fern Bar Revival Cocktail

1.5 oz Buffalo Trace Bourbon
.5 oz Galliano
.25 oz Grand Marnier
.25 oz Amaretto di Saronno
.5 oz OJ
.5 oz Lemon juice
2 dashes Grapefruit bitters

shake with ice & strain into coupe. garnish with orange zest and shiso leaf.


Harvey NEVER left..

As Frederic / Stan mentioned - last year's re-release is kind of still trumping this year's new release. Need to figure out a way to link to my (sadly, print) Updated Harvey Wallbanger from last fall/this spring. Some day I'll be organized and upload this stuff!

What is the difference between the old Galliano and the New one??? Are there specific recipe differences???

Camper English

The answer you seek is in the original story.

Blaze Hampton

Once again I extend my apologies for the stupid question.

Johnny Diablo

The Harvey Wallbanger is a classic. I just tried one of these the other night...delicious!
