Description

Here’s how to make the classic whiskey highball: tall, bubbly, and all about the spirit! This cocktail is a refreshing way to enjoy your favorite whiskey.


Ingredients

Scale
  • 2 ounces whiskey
  • 4 ounces soda water (or ginger ale or ginger beer, for a sweeter spin*)
  • Lemon wedge
  • Ice, for serving (try clear ice!)

Instructions

  1. Fill a glass with ice. Pour in the whiskey and soda water and stir gently.
  2. Squeeze in the lemon wedge and serve.

Notes

*Soda water is the most traditional and is very spirit-forward. Ginger ale or ginger beer results in a more balanced drink because it adds sweetness.
