Leading blended Scotch whisky maker Johnnie Walker has just introduced a whole new array of flavours to this year’s Taste of Hong Kong culinary extravaganza by inserting a wholly contemporary spin on that most classic of cocktails – the highball.
Under the deft behind-bar acrobatics of two particular guest bartenders at the Johnnie Walker Bar – Diageo Global Cocktailian, Lauren Mote, and World Class Bartender of the Year 2018, Orlando Marzo – lucky guests were treated to some delicious new Johnnie Walker Black Label, Double Black and Sherry Editions Highball creations.
First up is the Creamy And Fruity Coconut Highball created with Johnnie Walker Black Label. New and stylish, the sweetness of coconut makes an exceptional pairing with the rich flavours of the Black Label whisky. Second is the Classic Smoky Highball created with Double Black, that is topped off with a torched rosemary and a flavoured rosemary and honey lemon ice block handcrafted by Hong Kong local ice-pop manufacturer – N*ICEPOPS. Third is the Salted Lemon Highball – a traditional highball inspired by Hong Kong, created with a limited Black Label bottling, Sherry Edition.
The best part? They can be easily made at home… So wow your guests with three stylish highballs at your summer soiree, made even more exceptional by Johnnie Walker. Cheers!
