Cocktails don't get much simpler than this, but the success of the Japanese Whisky Highball lies in its preparation and ingredients.
First, chill your glassware. You can use a classic highball glass, a beer mug or whatever you have on hand... just make sure it's cold. As for the whisky, a good-quality blend works great (we love Suntory Toki).
Refreshing and lower-proof, these taste great on a hot afternoon. Careful, they go down fast!
Japanese Whisky Highball Recipe:
1.5 oz Japanese Whisky
Garnish: expressed lemon peel, optional
Pour whisky into your chilled glass, then add ice. Pour the Club Soda down the side of the glass, avoiding the ice as much as possible. Garnish if desired.
