Japanese Whisky Ginger Cocktail

What is a highball cocktail? Well usually, it refers to a drink made in a tall glass, filled with ice and topped with soda / fizzy water. Its is meant to lengthen the beverage and lighten the liquor. This version from boozyoyster.com can be made with alcoholic or non-alcoholic ginger beer, depending on your palette and what's available. Either way, Toki blended whiskey will add just the right flavour for you to enjoy!

Materials

  • 1 oz Suntory Toki Japanese Whisky Or your favourite
  • 3-1/2 oz Ginger Beer
  • Sparkling Water
  • Dash Angostura Bitters
  • Blood orange for garnish Or substitute any citrus

Instructions

  • Fill a highball glass with ice.
  • Carefully pour the ginger beer into the glass. Add soda soda to about two fingers below the rim.
  • Add whisky and bitters and stir. Use a bar spoon to get to the bottom.
  • Taste and add more soda to your liking.
  • Garnish with citrus

Notes

  • Several types of ginger beer are available, both alcoholic and non-alcoholic but if you have a Celiac person in your life remember gluten-free ginger beers are also available.
  • You can use club soda instead of the sparkling water if you like. The club soda will add minerality to the flavour of the cocktail.
  • Any citrus fruit will do for garnish, but blood orange is just so pretty here.
