Tropical Highball

Tropical Highball with rum, bitters, ginger ale, and lime

The Tropical Highball is exactly what it says on the tin – a fizzy long drink with a touch of the tropics. We found it in Dale DeGroff’s classic The Craft of the Cocktail. This is a rare one that we actually do prefer with ginger ale instead of ginger beer, although both are delicious.

Ingredients

Instructions

Build the ingredients in the order given, in an ice-filled tall glass. Squeeze the lime wedge over the drink before dropping it in as a garnish.

Game Changer

This is a game changer. When you're at the liquor store, thinking, "Yeah, ok fine what does Ancho Reyes liquor get me?" you open the app, look up Chile liquor and see that it gets you like 11 new cocktails. This is addictive, and indeed worth the price. We're having a blast under quarantine. While some of the ingredients are kind of anonymous, the icons look like the Campari bottle, and the descriptions often tell you if Campari will work or if you need Aperol. If you <3 cocktails, get this.
