Johnnie Walker, the world’s #1 Scotch whisky, puts the spotlight on the Johnnie Highball – a delicious and new way to enjoy whisky that’s making waves across the globe and in some of the world’s most influential hot spots, including the Philippines. The Johnnie Highball breaks old notions that whisky should only be consumed neat or on-the-rocks.
In its simplest form, a Johnnie Highball consists of Johnnie Walker whisky, a mixer, and a garnish. Best served in a chilled tall glass filled with a generous amount of ice, this new cocktail trend proves that ice actually enhances, not waters down, the spirit and flavour of a drink.
There are no strict rules or recipes to follow; but for people who like a recommendation, Johnnie Walker has come up with the Johnnie Highball Collection. Led by Johnnie & Lime, an instant classic and a sure hit among those who are regular whisky drinkers and those who are still new to the liquid alike, the Johnnie Highball Collection features a line up of drinks tailored specifically for the Filipino palate.
Any of the drinks in the Johnnie Highball Collection are easy to make using Johnnie Walker Red Label, Black Label, Double Black, and Gold Label Reserve – perfect for enjoying in a bar or for making at home with friends.
Johnnie & Lime
Best enjoyed using Johnnie Walker Red Label or Black Label, the Johnnie & Lime Highball is smoky with a kiss of citrus. To make, add 40ml or about 1 shot glass of Johnnie Walker Red Label or Black Label to a chilled tall glass filled with ice, and then top with 120ml lemon lime soda. Lastly, garnish with a slice of lime.
Johnnie & Ginger
A drink perfected by using Johnnie Walker Double Black as base, Johnnie & Ginger is a delicious mix of spicy and smoky flavours. Simply add 40ml or about 1 shot glass of Johnnie Walker Double Black to a chilled tall glass filled with ice, and then top with 120 ml ginger ale. Garnish with an orange slice.
Johnnie & Apple
The luxuriously smooth taste and creamy notes of vanilla and dark fruit of Johnnie Walker Gold Label Reserve blends impeccably with the tartness of apples in the Johnnie & Apple Highball. Make your own by simply adding 40ml or about 1 shot glass of Johnnie Walker Gold Label Reserve to a chilled tall glass filled with ice, top with apple juice, and then garnish with an apple slice.
