Best Summer Cocktails
A favorite of whisky drinkers in Japan during the summer, the Highball cocktail is simple, refreshing and sure to impress your guests.
Lemon for garnish
*The optimal proportion for a Toki Highball is 1 part Toki to 3.5 parts sparkling water.
Break a block of ice into roughly-hewn pieces and fill a tall glass to the brim. Add a measure of whisky and, using a long-handled mixing spoon, stir 5 – 10 times to cool the whisky and the glass to the ideal temperature. Add a little more ice, once again filling the glass to the brim. To avoid melting the ice or bursting the bubbles, pour the chilled sparkling water in along the side of the glass or down the spoon. Dip the mixing spoon in and out of the drink one last time, without stirring. Add a twist of lemon. Enjoy.
