The History and Tradition of Highball Mocktail Recipes
A highball is traditionally a tall drink made with whiskey and water, but some cocktail recipes also use non-alcoholic ingredients—these "mocktails" work just as well as the alcoholic ones do. The recipe dates back to the 19th century, when bar patrons would order their drinks by how tall they were. A tall drink meant a shot of liquor, while a short drink was mixed in a small glass with soda water or other mixers.
One of the earliest highball mocktails was "Ginger Pop," a drink of ginger ale and water. This can be traced back to 1933 and may have been created as early as 1885! There's also an old Irish custom that involves drinking "Scotch and Sodas," which is essentially just soda and whisky (almost a highball), and it's been around at least since the 1800s.
One of the attractions of highball drinks is that they can be dressed up in many different ways, depending on what you like to drink. You could even start your own tradition if you like!

How to Make Mashville Highball Mocktail Recipe
- First, you will need to gather your ingredients. Put one ice cube into your highball glass.
- Squeeze in a bit of that fresh lemon and rub on the edge of the glass
- Pour the Seir Hill Mashville into your highball glass. Add an ice cube or two to further chill it down; next, finish it off with a dash of soda water for that fizz!
Garnish it with the lemon wedge, then serve and enjoy your drink.

Mashville Highball Mocktail Variations
We're sure you're going to love this delicious highball recipe, but if you need something just a bit sweeter or with fewer ingredients, try out some of these non-alcoholic variations!
For a Delicate Coffee Flavor
If you want a richer, chocolatier taste for this highball recipe, add in some coffee Liqueur or Kahlúa but drop the lemon. It will add a hint of coffee flavor without affecting the flavor of your drink. Also, add an ounce of cream to make it even silkier! If you don't want to use cream, you can add a non-dairy alternative like coconut milk.
It might sound odd at first, but this variation on the highball uses milk for a cheekier treat! It's delicious and smooth. This is ideal if you add other flavors like mint chocolate syrup or vanilla extract.
Try It with Grapefruit Juice
You’ll need native julep mint sprigs to wipe around the glass rim and garnish and 0.25 ounces of grapefruit juice along with your 2 oz. of Mashville and a splash of soda.
Use a muddler or the handle end of a wooden spoon to gently crush up some mint sprigs in the bottom of your mixing glass. You could use an old-fashioned glass if you like, but it will be much easier to use something with a bit of weight. Keep the mint leaves in the glass as you add other ingredients.
