The Highball is such an old drink, it’s become the generic term for any kind of spirit and soda drink – it’s even got a glass named after it. This is the original recipe, and while it’s best with rye, it’s splendid with any kind of whiskey you’ve got.
- 2 parts Rye whiskey or Irish whiskey or Bourbon or Scotch or Blended whiskey or Japanese whisky
- 3 parts Ginger ale
Build in the order given in an ice-filled glass.
