Harvey Weissbanger

weissbanger2

1 oz Galliano L’Autentico
2 oz orange juice
6 oz quality wheat beer
orange peel, for garnish

Build in an ice-filled collins glass and give a gentle stir. Garnish with an orange peel. Any good wheat beer can work in this drink, though full-flavored ones work best.

This is a variation on the Harvey Wallbanger and is a staple on the Metrovino brunch menu.
