When it comes to a refreshing drink, sometimes you just want a highball. A mix of an alcoholic base and (usually) a carbonated beverage, served in a highball glass, these drinks are the ideal 5 o’clock cocktail or brunch beverage. And one of the most classic highballs is the whisky highball. Rising in popularity in the ‘50s, this cocktail is one of the mainstays of Japanese drinking culture and has become popular in the United States along with Japanese whisky. And Suntory Toki whisky, known for its blend of subtly sweet flavor with a spicy finish, is a natural choice for this beverage.
Where can you nab one of these crisp, refreshing cocktails? While highballs can be made by hand at bars everywhere, these Chicago spots serve up highly carbonated, perfectly balanced highballs with the help of Suntory Toki’s highball machine. Try these restaurants and bars for a perfectly mixed highball, made with Suntory Toki, every time.
