CONTENTS * 1 Etymology * 2 History * 3 See also * 4 References ETYMOLOGYThe name may refer to the practice of serving drinks in tall glasses , or the dining cars of trains powered by steam locomotives; when the engine would get up to speed and the ball that showed boiler pressure was at its high level, known as "highballing". Or the name may have come from early railroad signals with raised globes meaning "clear track ahead". HISTORYInitially, the most common highball was made with Scotch whisky and carbonated water , known as a "Scotch and soda". There are many rivals for the fame of mixing the first highball, including the Adams House in Boston. New York barman Patrick Duffy claimed the highball was brought to the U.S. in 1894 from England by actor E. J. Ratcliffe

Distilled Beverage
A DISTILLED BEVERAGE, SPIRIT, LIQUOR, HARD LIQUOR or HARD ALCOHOL is an alcoholic beverage produced by distillation of grains, fruit, or vegetables that have already gone through alcoholic fermentation . This process purifies it and removes diluting components like water, for the purpose of increasing its proportion of alcohol content (commonly expressed as alcohol by volume, ABV ). As distilled beverages contain more alcohol, they are considered "harder" – in North America, the term _hard liquor_ is used to distinguish distilled beverages from undistilled ones. As examples, this term does not include beverages such as beer , wine , sake , and cider , as they are fermented but not distilled. These all have a relatively low alcohol content, typically less than 15%. Brandy is a spirit produced by the distillation of wine, and has an ABV of over 35%

Drink Mixer
DRINK MIXERS are the non-alcoholic ingredients in mixed drinks and cocktails . There are many reasons mixers are used. They change or enhance flavors or add new ones to a drink. Mixers dilute the drink, lowering the alcohol by volume in the drink. They may make the drink sweeter, more sour, or more savory. Some mixers change the texture or consistency of the drink, making it thicker or more watery. Drink mixers may also be used strictly for decorative purposes by changing the color or appearance of the drink.

Dining Car
A DINING CAR (American English) or a RESTAURANT CAR (British English), also a DINER, is a railroad passenger car that serves meals in the manner of a full-service, sit-down restaurant . It is distinct from other railroad food service cars that do not duplicate the full-service restaurant experience, such as cars in which one purchases food from a walk-up counter to be consumed either within the car or elsewhere in the train. Grill cars, in which customers sit on stools at a counter and purchase and consume food cooked on a grill behind the counter are generally considered to be an "intermediate" type of dining car.

Railway Semaphore Signal
One of the earliest forms of fixed railway signal is the SEMAPHORE. These signals display their different indications to train drivers by changing the angle of inclination of a pivoted 'arm'. Semaphore signals were patented in the early 1840s by Joseph James Stevens, and soon became the most widely used form of mechanical signal. Designs have altered over the intervening years, and colour light signals have replaced semaphore signals in most countries, but in few they remain in use. Note that this article doesn't represent a worldwide view of the semaphore

Scotch Whisky
SCOTCH WHISKY, often simply called SCOTCH, is malt whisky or grain whisky made in Scotland . Scotch whisky must be made in a manner specified by law. All Scotch whisky was originally made from malted barley . Commercial distilleries began introducing whisky made from wheat and rye in the late 18th century. Scotch whisky is divided into five distinct categories: single malt Scotch whisky, single grain Scotch whisky, blended malt Scotch whisky (formerly called "vatted malt" or "pure malt"), blended grain Scotch whisky, and blended Scotch whisky. All Scotch whisky must be aged in oak barrels for at least three years. Any age statement on a bottle of Scotch whisky, expressed in numerical form, must reflect the age of the youngest whisky used to produce that product. A whisky with an age statement is known as guaranteed-age whisky

Carbonated Water
CARBONATED WATER (also known as CLUB SODA, SODA WATER, SPARKLING WATER, SELTZER WATER, or FIZZY WATER) is water into which carbon dioxide gas under pressure has been dissolved. Some of these have additives, such as sodium chloride, sodium bicarbonate or similar, but seltzer water is almost always composed of water and carbon dioxide with no other additives. This process, known as carbonation , is a process that causes the water to become effervescent . Most carbonated water is sold in ready to drink bottles as carbonated beverages such as soft drinks . However, it can also be prepared at home with soda makers

A GIN AND TONIC is a highball cocktail made with gin and tonic water poured over ice. It is usually garnished with a slice or wedge of lime . The amount of gin varies according to taste. Suggested ratios of gin to tonic are between 1:1 and 1:3. In some countries (e.g. UK), gin and tonic is also marketed pre-mixed in single-serving cans. In the United States, most bars use "soda out of a gun that in no way, shape or form resembles quinine water ", according to bartender Dale DeGroff . To get a real gin and tonic, DeGroff recommends specifying bottled tonic. Alternatively, one can add tonic syrup to soda water. Self-made gin and tonic from Bombay Sapphire London Dry Gin
