The Highball Cocktail and Its History

The highball cocktail refers to a family of mixed drinks that have an alcohol base spirit and a larger part of non-alcoholic mixer; a good example is the Cuba Libre which is made using one part rum and three parts Cola, or the Scotch and Soda where whiskey is simply mixed with carbonated water.

The Rickey Cocktail

The Rickey cocktail has one of the most interesting stories behind; it was created by a happenstance collaboration between a bartender and his regular customer, Colonel Joe Rickey, who enjoyed starting his mornings with a mixture of bourbon and sparkling water.
