Orange Whiskey Highball

ℍ𝕀𝔾ℍ•𝔹𝔸𝕃𝕃 \ ˈhī-ˌbȯl
1 : an iced drink containing liquor (such as whiskey) and water or a carbonated beverage (such as ginger ale) and served in a tall glass.

If your go-to order at the bar is a whiskey-ginger or whiskey-soda, you’ve been ordering highballs without knowing. Now you can ask for a whiskey highball and sound a little more sophisticated haha!

This variation is super easy with just 3 ingredients (PLEASE make them staples in your home bar) and a simple stir. I used a japenese liquor becaause I enjoy the floral notes. If you don’t have Cointreau on-hand, use more fresh orange juice or 3 dashes of orange bitters.

  • 2 oz whiskey
  • 1 oz Cointreau
  • 4 oz Ginger ale*
  • Small orange

Fill a highball (tall) glass with ice. Slice your orange into wedges. Squeeze the juice or your orange wedge into the glass. Pour in the whiskey, Cointreau and ginger ale. Give it a gentle stir. Garnish with orange slices.

*Use sparkling water for less sweetness.
