You know what’s good on a hot day?🤔
A Suntory Toki Japanese Highball.😏
You know what’s even better on a hot day?!?🤔
An Ilegal Reposado Oaxacan Highball!!!😱🤭
When it comes to a Japanese Highball there is something magical when you mix Japanese Whisky in a cold glass with soda water and a lemon peel. So imagine taking that same theory down to Oaxaca where mezcal reigns supreme.
The Oaxacan Highball works best when you use an aged mezcal like the Ilegal Reposado and pair it with the East Imperial Grapefruit Tonic and a Lime peel. What you’re gonna find when you drink this is a crisp, low sugar (much lower than other tonics), smokey version of a Paloma!
With notes of clove and vanilla from Ilegal Reposado, paired with the notes of pomelos and ruby red grapefruits from the East Imperial Grapefruit Tonic, and the added bitter brightness from the lime peel - this cocktail is sure to be a Patio Pounder!!! (Thank you @MeganAlexisStier for the phrase😜)
Lastly, though you can drink this out of a collins glass, the best way to truly enjoy this is out of a cantaritos!
