We’ve missed the February & March avatar challenges, (sorry), but it’s back again for April 2010. Our focus for this challenge is to photograph, paint or sketch a Highball drink. A full description of what a Highball is (from Wikipedia) is in the additional information below.
The challenge is open for two weeks. Please vote for your favourites!
Banners, congrats & the coveted group avatar image for the month of April 2010!
Highball is the name for a family of mixed drinks that are composed of an alcoholic base spirit and a larger proportion of a non-alcoholic mixer. Originally, the most common highball was made with Scotch whisky and carbonated water.
Well-known examples of highballs include Jack and Coke, Cuba Libre, Scotch and Soda, Seven and Seven, the Moscow Mule, the gin and tonic, and Sex on the Beach. A highball is typically served in large straight-sided glass, for example, a highball glass or a Collins glass, with ice.
