THE HIGHBALL

A drink that dates back to the late 1800s, it is a refreshing way to drink your favourite dram nice and long, making it  perfect for sundowners or any time you please (although breakfast could be pushing it). It is simply whisky and sparkling water with a slice of lemon and some mint leaves (if so desired). Originally made with soda water, there are now multiple options depending on what you prefer.
