"All right, Ms. Mixologizer, I'll have a Harvey Wallbanger." "Seriously Walt?!" "What?! You said you know a lot of classic drinks, now mix away!" My mom and step-dad's first time visiting me at my big girl bar and I don't know the drink. Crap. I turned around, pulled out my trusty drink book, figured it out, and reached way up high for the distinct yellow Galliano bottle. "What's that?!" He accidentally whispered. "I knew it! You didn't even know what it was!" Busted, he smiled and admitted he had heard it in movies and always wondered. I made it anyway. We all tried it, and it was actually quite good. It's my golden rule to try everything twice. You never know until you try, and you better try it at least twice because the nervousness or tension of trying something for the first time can totally ruin it.
