What's A Highball Glass?

A highball glass, sometimes spelt 'hi ball', is essentially a straight-sided glass tumbler used to serve highball cocktails and other mixed drinks which need a lot of ice. It usually has a volume of 8 to 12 fluid ounces (240 to 350 ml).

It is sometimes confused with a Collins glass which is slightly taller and more narrow.

However, it is the drinks themselves, that are served in this shaped glass, which are known as 'highballs' and are composed of an alcoholic base spirit and a larger proportion of a non-alcoholic mixer. Popular highball drinks include gin and tonic, cuba libre, bloody mary, whisky highball with ginger ale and campari and soda.

So what's the difference between a highball and lowball glass? The lowball glass, also known as an 'Old Fashioned' glass or rocks glass is a short tumbler used for spirits, such as whisky, either straight or with ice - 'on the rocks'.
