I had to look up Galliano to see what it was.
Sweet and vanilla-y. It might not be bad on the rocks, but it sounds like it's very sweet.
The simplest drink one can make with it seems to be the Harvey Wallbanger.
45ml (3 parts) Vodka
15ml (1 part) Galliano
90ml (6 parts) fresh orange juice
You don't see many folks ordering wallbangers these days but they are delicious. What your recipe doesn't mention is that you mix the OJ and Vodka (make a screwdriver), then float the Galiano on top for best results.
Good tip! Thank you.
(It's just a sample recipe; I've never made one.)
I find screwdrivers too bitter, because I like orange juice so much (seriously, it's like taking something perfect and making it taste kinda bad, if admittedly Drunkening). Seriously: If presented with both vodka and orange juice I would drink swift shots and chase them with delicious unadulterated juice.
So the Galliano would probably actually be quite nice
as a sweetener--but I suppose it would be good to use a light hand until an average dose is established.
It is way too sweet to drink straight up imho, but would probably be good on snow cones if we will be having those again this year.
Indeed, Ratty could team up with AntiM's Larry . . . he was the one making them last time.
