Okay, full disclosure time. I really don’t drink this much. I actually don’t drink cocktails at all. With the exception of the mojito and the gin and tonic, I’m really more of a wine gal.
In order to fulfill Anne’s Dress Like a Libation theme, then, I had to resort to my boyfriend, Google, to help me out with inspiration pics. Most of the cocktails I pulled up were quite yellow and I was willing to go all monochrome with the color but I needed an actual drink to go with the look.
It was a clear case of chicken or the egg.
Enter Spiritdrinks.com. What an amazing resource! If I were still in my 20s with a well-stocked bar, I’d be in heaven right about now. As it was, I had a lovely time browsing drinks by color and I found the perfect one to end my week and match today’s outfit. Ever heard of a Harvey Wallbanger? Well, now you have. And here’s the super-easy recipe:
- 1-1/2 oz Vodka
- 1 splash Galliano
- Orange Juice
- Garnish: Red Maraschino Cherry, Orange Slice
- Glass: Highball Glass
- Fill a highball glass with ice.
- Add the vodka and fill with orange juice.
- Top with a splash of Galliano and garnish with a maraschino cherry and an orange slice.
I’ve never heard of Galliano, but this drink sounds light and refreshing, exactly the kind of yum I’d love to spend my Friday with. Sure, it’s really just a fancy-pants Screwdriver, but it sure does sound fun. (Imagine hollering for that at the bar). And a fancy-pants drink is a perfect match to my fancy-pants outfit which is a perfect way to end the week.
