This may seem like a very simple libation but the Highball Mizuwari is a Japanese cocktail that’s all about the Whisky—and the ritual involved. Even before you add the Soda Water, this is a drink that is all about the stirs, so make sure you count them at each stage.
Stack several large cubes of ice in a highball glass. Pour the whisky into the glass and slowly stir it 13 and a half times. Fill the glass with ice again, and top with sparkling water. Stir three and a half more times to finish the drink.
