Best Classic Whiskey Highball Cocktail
Rabbit Hole Distillery
Back in the 1800's, the whiskey highball was mixed with plain soda water. How boring! Since the 1920's (the "Gilded Age"), it has been mixed with ginger ale; which perfectly compliments the crisp citrus taste of the lemon. Enjoy this classic cocktail at your next outing - ask for a "Boxergrail Highball."
2.5 ounces Boxergrail high-rye whiskey
4 to 6 ounces ginger ale
2 peels (use vegetable peeler) and one slice lemon
Fill a highball glass with ice
Add Boxergrail high-rye whiskey

Fill glass rest of the way with ginger ale
Garnish rim of glass with lemon slice. Enjoy!
