MAYA BAY

Fresh

This highball variation was created at the One Night in Bangkok bar during the 2018 Chivas Masters. Chivas Mizunara is perfect for highballs, due to its delicate aromatic flavours. Marrying these flavours with lychee, lemongrass and coconut cordial transports the drinker of this whisky cocktail to tropical shores in just one sip.
