The Irish Whiskey Highball is simple to make, exceptionally refreshing to drink, and a perfect prelude to a relaxing time. Sparkling water is ideal, but never use club soda. Try ginger ale or lemon-lime soda.
- 2 fluid ounces whiskey
- 1 carbonated water
- 1 lemon
- Pour Irish whiskey into a highball glass over ice cubes.
- Fill with carbonated water and stir.
- Add the twist of lemon peel and serve.
- (Ginger ale may be substituted for carbonated water, if preferred.)
