What you need

How to Serve

Hot whisky goes well with many different toppings, including lemon and other citrus fruit. Or why not devise your own? Cinnamon sticks, perhaps, herbs like clove or basil, even jam or dried apples. The water should optimally be at a temperature of 80 °C.

 

Be sure to warm the glass with hot water before pouring in the whisky. This drink can also be enjoyed outdoors in a small Sierra cup when you're in the mountains or at the riverside.

Highball
