Japanese Highball

Japanese Highball cocktail, with Japanese whisky and club soda

A whisky highball with seltzer or club soda is one of the most popular items on Japanese drink menus. It’s a lovely way to enjoy a good Japanese whisky; the effervescence of the sparkling water softens the alcohol and allows the aromatics to be fully enjoyed.

Ingredients

Instructions

Add the Japanese whiskey to a tall ice-filled glass. Top with sparkling water to fill the glass, and stir the drink gently with a barspoon to build up a bit of froth. Add a lemon twist or wedge, or leave ungarnished.

Get the App

The Cocktail Party app puts this drink – and hundreds more – in your pocket, and tells you what you can make from the ingredients you have at home. It's the best $3.99 you'll ever spend on a drink.

This app ROCKS!!!

I've used a number of mix drink apps, and this one is by FAR the BEST! I've made a couple dozen drinks so far, and they're delicious. It suits my quality wants while (more importantly) suiting my inherent laziness. You put in what you have on hand, and it automatically lists all the drinks you can make! There's info on all the ingredients, which is pretty neat to learn some backstory. What I truly like is I can click an ingredient and it shows how many more drinks I can make. It's pretty fun picking up a new item and seeing 8 new drinks to try. There's a setting on the iPad that locks the app on so people can switch on the mixing app without letting anyone out of it, so I leave it by the bar and people can use it without worry of people snooping around. ;) The combination of all the drinks and this app that makes searching for, and making a drink, easy peezy lemon squeezey, and gives a real feeling of sophistication.
