A smooth and bubbly grown-up drink made with Jameson Irish Whiskey and 7UP. Cheers!
If you prefer cocktails with a more robust alcohol flavor, then you’ll really like my Jameson and 7UP recipe! This drink is perfectly balanced and so easy to make!
I finally bought my first bottle of Jameson last month, and I made this Jameson & 7UP the following night. I basically just took my go-to 7 & 7 recipe and subbed in Jameson. And the result??
Bubbly and sweet Jameson magic! I absolutely loved it.
No recipe is really needed, but I’ve included one just in case below. Garnish with a lemon wedge or a cocktail cherry.
Why You’ll Love This Drink ♡
You’ll love this Jameson and 7UP cocktail because it’s incredibly easy and quick to make. You literally just have to pour two ingredients into an ice-filled glass!
I prefer a higher ratio of 7UP to Jameson–the buzz of the whisky and 7UP builds slowly and is easy to maintain at a humming level. But feel free to adjust the alcohol level to suit your preference.
I think you owe it to yourself to give this simple 2-ingredient cocktail a try. 😉
How to Make a Jameson and 7UP
The easiest cocktail recipes are the ones with the ingredients in their title, right?
All you really need is:
- Jameson Irish Whisky: Of course, you’ll need Jameson!
- 7UP: I generally make this with Diet 7UP, but you can also use Regular 7UP.
- Ice: Jameson and 7UP is served over ice.
- (optional) Garnishes: Garnish your drink with a lemon wedge or a cocktail cherry.
It’s also nice to garnish the drink with a lemon wedge. But if you don’t have lemon, it will still be delicious.
Clear Ice Takes Jameson and 7UP Up a Notch
Here’s a tip for an over the top Jameson and 7UP recipe: use clear ice! Clear ice is a crystal clear instead of cloudy like regular ice.
I love making our own clear ice at home: first boil your water, then use the directional freezing method (by insulating the sides and bottom of a container) to encourage the formation of clear ice on the top.
- Highball Glass: A highball is a tall, skinny glass. You can also use a slightly larger Collins glass.
- Bar Spoon: The long handle on bar spoons makes it really easy to stir cocktails and not make a mess.
- Jigger: My go-to measuring tools for cocktails. They work perfectly for pouring in layers for cocktails.
When To Serve Jameson & 7UP
- Summer cocktail
- Summer barbecue
- Cocktail party
- After dinner drink
- Holiday Gathering (garnish with fresh cranberries for a festive twist)

What can I mix with Jameson Irish whisky?
What to mix with Jim Beam? The best mixers for Jameson are water, club soda, 7UP, Sprite, and Coke. Sweet and sour mix is also a good option.
What if I don’t have any 7UP?
If you’re all out of 7UP, there are several soda substitutions, including:

A soda like Mountain Dew will be a lot more intense/sweet and may mask the alcohol taste a bit.
You can also use a lemon or lime seltzer water–you can stir in some simple syrup!
