Sweet Old Fashioned

Mix up a Sweet Old Fashioned, made with 7UP®, today. Mix freely, drink responsibly.

The 7UP Sweet Old Fashioned is inspired by the Wisconsin standby, the Brandy Old Fashioned cocktail, which is sweeter than the traditional Old Fashioned. However, we kept the whiskey in our version since the 7UP and grenadine add just enough sweetness on their own. If traditional Old Fashioneds have been too strong for your taste, this version might be worth exploring.

Tips from 7UP

Maraschino cherries, the bright red standby we all know from ice cream sundaes, are an easy way to add a little something extra to drinks. However, there’s a whole world of cherries to explore if you’re looking for something more grown-up. Cherries come in different fruit varietals, and can be soaked and preserved in everything from apple cider brandy to kirsch to moonshine.
