Spirit Thursday

I like strange and unique twists on well known drinks. The Highball is a pretty common drink, but what if you sub in a fine Japanese whisky. This would seem to be a great end of the summer drink and a welcome site at your tailgate event.

The Japanese Highball


  • Suntory Whisky Toki


  1. Fill a tall glass to the brim with ice.
  2. Add one measure of whisky.
  3. Stir to cool the whisky and glass.
  4. Again add ice to the brim.
  5. Pour three measures of chilled sparkling water along the side of the glass to avoid melting the ice or bursting the bubbles.
  6. Add a twist of lemon.
