Harvey’s Tiki Hut

Galliano’s vanilla-and-spice flavor profile makes is a pretty flexible liqueur in many different types of cocktails, from light and fruity to rich and savory. In the spring, we mixed Galliano¬†with tequila in an¬†Hola Harvey, and now it’s time to mix¬†Galliano in a tiki drink.

Note that we’re using orange curacao in this cocktail (for the first time on this blog, actually). In the past, when an “orange liqueur” was¬†called for, I’d just use¬†Bols triple sec. The two “orange liqueurs” are different, though, and here’s a brief summary¬†thanks to Camper English:

  • Triple sec is clear¬†and based on neutral spirits. Cointreau is a¬†triple sec.
  • Curacao is usually brownish, though can be orange or blue. It has¬†color is because it’s brandy-based and sometimes aged,¬†which also means¬†curacao¬†tastes¬†richer. Grand Marnier is a curacao.

Without further delay, here’s¬†Harvey’s Tiki Hut:

  • in a shaker, combine:
  • 1 1/2 oz white rum
  • 3/4 oz Galliano
  • 3/4 oz Bols orange curacao
  • 3/4 oz lime juice
  • shake with ice and strain¬†into a glass (or tiki mug) filled with ice
  • garnish with a lime wedge
