Now that Election Day's come and gone, what's left to celebrate? Why, Harvey Wallbanger Day, of course! We suggest ringing in today with at least one version of the drink.
The Harvey Wallbanger was a product of the 1970s, where it was the drink du jour at fern bars across the country. The Harvey, as it was affectionately known, eventually faded into oblivion as American drinkers gained more sophisticated palates, but it's nevertheless seen a small revival in recent years.
At its core, the Harvey is a booze-fueled citrus drink. The classic version calls for just three ingredients — orange juice, vodka, and the anise-tinged Galliano — while a more contemporary version adds lemon, honey, and New Orleans bitters for even more complexity. Keep reading for two great Harvey Wallbanger recipes.

When we received a jar of Fat Toad Farm Salted Bourbon Caramel Sauce ($11), my mouth instantly started salivating. Bourbon and salted caramel, two of my favorite things, had joined forces in one jar; it was too good to be true. Then, I saw that the caramel came with a recipe card for brie with caramel and sliced almonds. It was as if the food gods were bestowing a near perfect flavor combination at my feet.
Caramel sauce may seem like an unlikely pairing for brie, but oftentimes the buttery cheese is paired with a sweet accompaniment like jam or chutney for contrast. This caramel, made from goat's milk, is subtly sweet and offers a grassy, woodsy flavor to the cheese with a bourbon essence that's not too strong. The dish is then sprinkled with sliced almonds, which incorporate earthy, nutty notes throughout each bite.
Our taste testers adored this combination for its sweet and salty flavors as well as creamy and crunchy textures. Overall, the vote was unanimous; this is a holiday party must make. With practically no prep involved, it's an appetizer guests are sure to remember and beg for, for years to come. See the recipe.
