You also want to hear a story? O.k. The first time I heard about a Highball was when I read “To have and have another/ A Hemingway Cocktail Companion” from Phil Greene. And this is the book I opened today. Hemingway liked highballs, also Whiskey & Ginger Ale. As ginger ale combines well with Rye or a smoky Scotch (and Hemingway also liked Scotch!), I decided to make a very smoky Scotch & Ginger Ale!
2 oz. Scotch, 4 oz. Ginger Ale, Garnish: Lime Wedge
Fill a highball glass with ice, add ingredients and stir. Garnish with a lime wedge.
