Easy Whisky Cocktails Everyone Should Try

On a night out, you might not think to order whisky. It’s often overlooked because it can be perceived as old-fashioned, and it’s frequently stereotyped as a man’s drink. But depending on how you mix it, whisky can be a fun and fresh-tasting drink that you can enjoy wherever and whenever you like.

Take, for example, the highball. This versatile cocktail is very trendy at the moment, making it a popular choice for when you're at a bar or club. A particularly popular variation is the Johnnie Highball, Johnnie Walker’s take on the classic cocktail. The iconic whisky is combined with a non-alcoholic mixer—usually lemon-lime soda—and tons of ice to create a light yet bold-flavored drink specifically made for the Filipino palate. It’s also easy to mix by yourself, so you won’t have to head out if you’re home alone and craving the crisp cocktail.
