National Harvey Wallbanger Day is a celebration of this drink and its history.
Some people claim that National Harvey Wallbanger Day was founded in 1971, while others say it was developed in 1952 at the Los Angeles Blackwatch Bar. According to legend, the drink was named after Donato Antone, a three-time champion mixologist and surfer. The problem is that Robert Simonson, a culinary historian, said that there is no evidence that the Blackwatch Bar existed or that Duke was in Los Angeles at that time. These are two extremely problematic points in the story.
It’s true that it’s a charming story. But, it doesn’t seem to have any truth. Let’s take a look at something more certain. George Bednar was the McKesson Imports Company’s executive director. He created the character “Harvey Wallbanger” as part of his marketing strategy to promote the drink. The drink was promoted by both the character and the tagline that he created.
