The Whisky Highball is the ultimate drink for festive partying. With only two main ingredients - whisky (obvs!) and soda - it’s simple to make, highly customisable and super delicious. So for our 12th and FINAL drink of Christmas, we’re giving away a hamper with everything ya need for some bangin’ Nikka Days Christmas Highballs.
Meet the OG of Japanese whisky. Nikka was founded in 1934 by the great Masataka Taketsuru, who learned the secrets of traditional whisky-making in Scotland and brought ‘em home to Japan to create some epic drams of his own. Legend status. Fast-forward to today and the brand is still at it, making world-renowned single malts and blends at its Yoichi and Miyagikyo distilleries, AKA Japanese whisky heaven.
When it comes to the Highball, our go-to spirit has gotta be Nikka Days. This easy-drinking blend is made with both grain whiskies and single malts, and it’s just as good for sipping neat as it is in cocktails - so whether you’re new to whisky or you’re a dram-drinking pro, you’re gonna wanna get your hands on a bottle.
The creamy, fruity notes of Nikka Days get a spicy kick from ginger ale in this riff on a classic Highball…
Pour the Nikka Days into a highball glass filled with ice. Top up with the ginger ale and garnish with an orange slice and candied ginger. Hella festive!
