Whisky Highball

Japanese Whisky Highball Nikka Taketsuru

There are few alcoholic beverages as refreshing as a whiskey Highball. They’re easy to make and allow for fun experimentation. I used Nikka Taketsuru, a blended malt as many Japanese whiskies are, and it works perfectly in a highball (haibōru).

The type of whiskey you choose is up to you. You can use single malt scotch, Irish whiskey, Canadian whisky, bourbon, rye…I think you get the picture. Try it with your preferred whiskey style, then do some experimenting to see which you like best.

Whiskey Highball

An easy-to-make cocktail that is super delicious and refreshing.

Ingredients

  • 2 oz. Whiskey

  • Soda Water

  • Lemon Peel for Garnish

Directions

  • Fill a tall glass at least half full of ice.
  • Add whisky.
  • Top with soda water. There should be at least twice as much soda as whisky, and more is fine.
  • Give it a gentle stir, then garnish with a lemon peel, if desired.
