Also called the “Kaku High”, the Kaku Highball may be Japan’s most beloved cocktail. This chilled highball beautifully brings out the inherent flavor and fullness of the whisky. Enjoy a refreshing Kaku Highball at meal-time or any time, and make sure to properly chill the glass, whisky, and soda first.
What You Need
- 45 Kakubin Blended Whisky
- 3 premium soda water
- Grapefruit slice or lemon peel
The highball is a refreshing whisky drink, and the secret is not to overstir it so it doesn't lose its fizz. Also recommended is highball without ice, which lets you savor the whisky's flavor and sweetness more.
