Dirty Shirley

Boozy Refreshing Dirty Shirley Cocktail with Cherry Soda and Vodka

A spiked version of the famous Shirley Temple, Dirty Shirley Drink is a simple three-ingredient recipe consisting of Sprite, grenadine, and vodka. This recipe makes single-serving cocktails by layering each ingredient in an ice-filled glass. The vodka is almost undetectable under the sweet citrus flavors of sprite and the bitter finish from the grenadine.


Sex in the Driveway

Another bright blue cocktail, Sex in the Driveway, is a creative take on the classic Sex on the Beach cocktail. It combines the two super-sweet liqueurs of peach schnapps and blue curacao with your choice of either vodka or white rum. Sprite adds a fizzy, tart complement to neutralize the sweet liqueurs. This recipe makes one cocktail, but you can easily scale it up for a larger party.


Seven & Seven Highball

Homemade Seven and Seven Whiskey HIghball with Lemon

Originally referring to the two key ingredients of Seagram’s Seven Crown whiskey and 7-Up, the Seven & Seven highball was the most popular cocktail during the 1970s. This recipe switches 7-Up with Sprite.


Midori Sour

A famous 1970s-era cocktail, Midori Sour is the neon-green fizzy vodka cocktail that gets its color from Midori liqueur. The rich melon flavor of Midori mixed with the tart and sweet lemon-lime soda is a match made in cocktail heaven. This is a show stopping cocktail that looks extra-retro when garnished with a maraschino cherry.


Vodka Cranberry Cocktail

True to its name, this Summertime Cocktail is the perfect libation to refresh you on a hot, sunny day. It’s nearly identical to the vodka cranberry cocktail, but it swaps orange juice for lemon juice. Lemon juice adds a nice tang while highlighting the lemon-lime flavor of Sprite in this refreshing vodka cocktail.


Vodka and Sprite Cocktail

Cousin to the classic vodka soda or vodka tonic cocktail, Vodka and Sprite is a slightly sweeter drink but just as refreshing. A more straightforward cocktail doesn’t exist. All you need is a glass of ice, sprite, and vodka. You can decide the ratio of mixer to spirit. A twist of lime balances the sweetness.


Beach Water Cocktail

Named for the deep blue coloring of this summery cocktail, Beach Water Cocktail gets its color from the blue raspberry-flavored vodka served with equal parts coconut rum. You top it all off with a pour of sprite. Coconuts and raspberries are the pairings you never knew you needed. The creamy nuttiness of coconut complements the light, tangy sweetness of raspberries.


Rum and Sprite Cocktail

If you’re a fan of Cuba Libres, this Rum and Sprite cocktail is a great alternative. It’s a simple, two-ingredient drink of sprite and white rum with a squeeze of lime. The lemon-lime soda is much more refreshing than cola and lets a white or spiced rum take center stage.


Hibiscus Tequila and Sprite Cocktail

This delightfully pink drink is a refreshing and rich tequila drink consisting of silver tequila, freshly brewed hibiscus iced tea, and sprite. Hibiscus is a powerfully tart, floral tea that blends well with the spicy smoky palate of silver tequila. The recipe includes lime juice and simple syrup to amplify both the sweet and sour aspects of the hibiscus and sprite. It’s a fairly complex recipe, but worth making the precise measurements for.


Sassy Sangria

A refreshing fall-inspired Sangria, the Sassy Sangria has a base of red wine, lemon juice, and Midori to drown cut-up pear and apple. Topping it all off with a hearty pour of sprite adds a wonderful fizzy finish. This is a great party cocktail to make in a large pitcher.


Gin and Sprite Cocktail

Cleverly referred to as “Tom Collins on a budget,” this simple gin and sprite cocktail saves you the trouble of making simple syrup and squeezing lemons. It’s a simple two-to-one ratio of sprite to gin. The sweet and tart flavors in Sprite complement the medicinal herb flavors inherent in gin.


Electric Lemonade

The epitome of citrus, this Electric Lemonade recipe uses citrus-flavored vodka, liqueur, and soda. Its blue hue comes from the orange-flavored Blue curacao that gets a tangy pairing with a splash of sour mix. It’s a foolproof recipe that requires you to fill the glass with the alcoholic ingredients and then subsequently top them with sprite.


Pineapple Rum Cocktail

Another simple three-ingredient cocktail, the Pineapple rum cocktail comes courtesy of the famous Malibu coconut rum distillery. It’s a sumptuous tropical blend of fresh pineapple juice and the creamiest, nuttiest coconut rum. It’s just as delicious as a pina colada, but twice as refreshing, thanks to the addition of sprite.


Watermelon Crush

There’s no fruit more synonymous with summertime refreshers than watermelon, and this Watermelon Crush cocktail upholds its namesake fruit’s refreshing reputation. The recipe is for amateur bartenders looking for a bit of a challenge. This vodka cocktail blends fresh, homemade watermelon juice with lime, getting an extra tart and sweet boost from sprite, not to mention a delightfully bubbly finish.
