Harvey Headbanger

A crisp, refreshing vodka cocktail is pretty hard to beat. Of course you need to start with the proper spirit, and we think that Reyka Vodka fits the bill perfectly. Made in Iceland, where people know their vodka, Reyka is made in small batches with pure arctic spring water, filtered through lava rocks, and distilled in one of the world's only Carter Head copper stills. And because it's Iceland, the entire distillery runs on geothermal energy from volcanoes! The resulting vodka is clean, pure, fresh, and mixes perfectly with just about anything. So let's make a drink with it!

Now we've all seen the tall, skinny bottle of bright yellow booze behind the bar, covered in dust, and wondered; what is that, what do you make with it, and who drinks it? The answers are Galliano, lots of things, and probably your grandparents long before you were born! You might have heard of the classic cocktail called a Harvey Wallbanger, which is basically a vodka-OJ with a splash of Galliano. With that inspiration, we made a modern cocktail suitable for all you drink snobs out there who would never dare order a screwdriver. (Don't worry that's us too)
