The scotch and soda is a simple, yet elegant cocktail that is often overlooked in favor of more popular drinks. One of its most distinguishing features is the use of scotch whiskey instead of bourbon or rye. It originated in India, but it has become known as an American drink because it was served there with soda water. This cocktail can be served in any type of drinking glass but it is usually served in a high-ball glass so that people can see its light yellow coloration.
2 ounces blended Scotch whisky
Lemon wedge (optional garnish)
1. Fill a highball glass with ice.
2. Add the Scotch whisky.
3. Top off with club soda and stir.
4. No garnish is needed, but you may garnish with a lemon wedge if you wish.
