WHY IS IT CALLED A WHISKY HIGHBALL?

One belief was that ball was bartenders’ slang for glass, and this drink is best served in a tall glass. The other is to do with railroads, where at maximum train speed the ball indicator would be highest in the tank, and two short whistle blows followed by one long one were given – in the same way two shots of whisky would be followed by one long pour of soda in the drink.
