Highball Whiskey Soda

Highball whiskey isn’t anything new, in fact, it’s been around long before I was born.  But actually, I hardly ever see whiskey being served this way over here in the States.

I see vodka soda quite a bite, but never a Highball Whiskey Soda.

I only found out about it because it became quite a fad drink over in Japan.  The last time I was there back in 2011, I remember being at a business dinner and everybody was ordering one.

Highball Whiskey Soda served in a whiskey glass with a wedge of lemon and beef sticks.

So of course being, super open-minded to all kinds of alcoholic drinks, I ordered one for the sake of enlightenment!  It was nice, crisp and so refreshing it soon became my ‘everyday’ drink to unwind to!

Highball whiskey is just whiskey split with carbonated water, also known as a whiskey soda.  The aspect I like about this style is the effervescence effect and how it creates a new character to the drink.

And best of all, since whiskey is distilled, it has 0 carbs!  Just make sure to enjoy responsibly!

As I often state, I’m a big fan of whiskey glasses.  I really enjoy getting all the notes out of anything I drink and to get that, you’ll need the proper glassware.  The correct glassware really does make a huge difference to anything you drink!
