Classic 7UP Margarita

The classic margarita gets a hint of lemon-lime bubbles with the addition of 7UP®. Try this refreshing take today. Mix freely, drink responsibly.

There are many stories of where the margarita came from and who invented it. And while we know 7UP wasn’t in that original recipe, we think it adds an extra element of refreshment with its mild citrus flavor and crisp bubbles. Shake it up and pour it over ice. We bet you’ll find the Classic 7UP Margarita just as pleasing as the original.

Tips from 7UP

Why salt the rim of a margarita glass? It’s not just decorative; it actually enhances the many flavors in the drink. Salt reacts differently on your palate when it mixes with the sweet orange liqueur, the heat of the tequila, and the bitterness of the lime.
