Friday Jam: Jersey Pool Party Playlist

Just because summer is over doesn't mean we can't listen to mixed tape full of 80's and early 90's that remind us of being poolside (in Jersey!).  This playlist features nostalgic gems that transport you back to the days of big hair, heavy makeup, and neon bathing suits.  This awesome playlist was made by my amazing hubby, Brad. Thanks! To subscribe click here.

While we are having fun, mix up some 80's cocktails to celebrate these awesomely colorful years (recipes below).  

Harvey Wallbanger

According to legend, the Harvey Wallbanger was named after a Manhattan Beach, Californian surfer called Harvey who drank so many Screwdriver drinks topped with Galliano that he well, banged into walls.


1.25 oz Vodka

3 oz Orange Juice

.5 oz Galliano L’Autentico


Add the vodka and the orange juice to a tall glass filled with ice. Stir, and float the Galliano on top. Garnish with an orange slice.
