Review:

A "bangin", golden, sunny-looking and sunny-tasting cocktail.

Variant:

A Cactus Banger is also a tequila-based Harvey Wallbanger

History:

I don't have any notes as to the origin of this version of the Cactus Banger but as one of the older recipes on my database, its origin is pre-late 1990s.

A Cactus Banger is perhaps better known as being a simple Harvey Wallbanger based on tequila rather than vodka and it is this version that appears in books such as Stanley M. Jones' 1977 Jones' Complete Barguide.
