Where did the term high ball come from?

1 Answer

A highball is a mixed alcoholic drink. The name may refer to the practice of serving drinks in tall glasses, on the dining cars of trains powered by steam locomotives, where the engine would get up to speed and the ball that showed boiler pressure was at its high level, known as "highballing".
