CHERRY HIGHBALL

Fresh

Sweet

If you’re new to drinking whisky and like cocktails to be on the sweeter side, the Cherry Highball is for you! This is a highball recipe that you can pull together in seconds; just mix cherry juice, soda water and Chivas 12 (though you can choose your favourite blend) together and add lots of ice. For the cherry on top of the cake – or drink in this case – add a fresh, plump cherry to the glass and you’ve got a beautifully pink drink.

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.
