A tried and true classic, this Highball is made with a measure of Scotch whisky, cubed ice and an effervescent topper of soda water. While we prefer to use blended scotch instead of heady, peaty single malt spirits, there’s a scotch and soda pairing for every palate. You’ll just have to try them all. What a chore.
Scotch and Soda
- Add scotch to a highball glass with cubed ice.
- Top with soda and stir with a bar spoon to incorporate.
- If desired, garnish with a lemon twist.
From Harry Craddock’s The Savoy Cocktail Book, this aperitif is made with dry, nutty fino sherry, sweet cherry-flavored maraschino liqueur and dry vermouth. Finished with orange bitters and a lemon twist, this classic tipple is aromatic and warming.
