Those who say whisky should only be enjoyed neat or on the rocks sure have not tried a good highball concoction yet.
“What’s so great about the highball is that there are virtually unlimited ways to prepare one. By simply adjusting the measurements, or maybe switching up a mixer or the blend, people can unlock different kinds of taste experiences—ideal for people who think they don’t like the liquid, or have yet to discover it,” shares Diageo Reserve brand ambassador Rian Asiddao.
Blended Scotch whisky label Johnnie Walker promotes its highball cocktails. A Johnnie Highball consists of Johnnie Walker whisky, a mixer, and a garnish. It is best served in a chilled tall glass filled with a generous amount of ice.
Bottoms up with the Johnnie Highball Collection:
Johnnie and Lime
Best enjoyed using Johnnie Walker Red Label or Black Label, the Johnnie and Lime Highball is smoky with a kiss of citrus. To make, add 40ml or about one shot glass of Johnnie Walker Red Label or Black Label to a chilled tall glass filled with ice, and then top with 120ml lemon lime soda. Garnish with a slice of lime.
Johnnie and Ginger
A drink perfected by using Johnnie Walker Double Black as base, it is a delicious mix of spicy and smoky flavors. Simply add 40ml or about one shot glass of Johnnie Walker Double Black to a chilled tall glass filled with ice, and then top with 120 ml ginger ale. Garnish with an orange slice.
Johnnie and Apple
The luxuriously smooth taste and creamy notes of vanilla and dark fruit in Johnnie Walker Gold Label Reserve blends impeccably with the tartness of apples. Make one by simply adding 40ml or about one shot glass of Johnnie Walker Gold Label Reserve to a chilled tall glass filled with ice, top with apple juice, and then garnish with an apple slice.
