Today, it can’t be seen as often anymore, but it still deserves its place on your bar cart due to its light and mild taste and the fact that it’s easily mixed with other drinks.

Many people in the liquor community consider it a favorite when mixed with a soft drink, although the charred wood and apricot flavor can leave a fuzzy feeling and strange aftertaste in your mouth if you drink it neat.

That’s why it’s best enjoyed together with Seven-Up, which can eliminate the burning taste completely and make this whiskey a joy to drink.

About the Recipe

There’s not much to say about the preparation of the drink, which is extremely easy to achieve. The most important thing to remember is that using the original ingredients creates the most authentic taste.

Because of the fact that no garnishes are required, this beverage is a great option to have in your repertoire, in case you run out of the ingredients for fancier drinks.

If you’d like to mix it up, there are several possibilities in addition to the classic recipe. For example, you can use Sprite instead of Seven-Up if this is more easily available.

You can also try mixing the whiskey with club soda or ginger ale to create several different flavors. But when it comes to achieving that perfect blend of whiskey and lemon lime flavor, only an authentic Seven-Up will do.


When it comes to creating a delicious but simple beverage, you can’t do much better than this mixture of Seagram’s Seven Crown whiskey and Seven-Up. It’s a great choice for anyone who wants a refreshing drink without the distraction of different garnishes, complicated bar tools, or fancy ingredients.

That’s why it’s a great choice if you’re just starting out on your cocktail creating journey, or if you’re looking for a quick and easy addition to your repertoire. Try swapping the 7-up for Sprite instead for a bit of a twist, too!

I have always had a deep interest in the restaurant and bar industry. My restaurant experience began in 1997 at the age of 14 as a bus boy. By the time I turned 17 I was serving tables, and by 19 I was bartending/bar managing 6-7 nights a week.

In 2012, after a decade and a half of learning all facets of the industry, I opened my first restaurant/bar. In 2015, a second location followed, the latter being featured on The Food Network’s Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives.
