Fill a whiskey glass with ice. Combine whiskey, bitters, and grenadine. Add Sprite and stir briefly. Garnish.

10. Knob Creek and Sprite
Pour Knob Creek Bourbon into a highball glass with some Sprite and ice cubes. SO easy!
- Instead of ice, pour the Sprite and Whiskey over a scoop of vanilla ice cream to make a boozy float.
- Brighten it up with a squeeze of citrus – I like to use about an ounce of fresh lemon juice.
- Experiment with garnishes like lemon wheels or lemon wedges for extra citrus flavor.
Citrus and whiskey have always been a staple in the cocktail world because the two are a great pairing.
What if I don’t have any Sprite?
If you’re all out of Sprite, there are several soda substitutions, including:
- Sierra Mist
- Store brand lemon lime soda
A soda like Mountain Dew will be a lot more intense/sweet and may mask the strong whiskey taste a bit.
You can also use a lemon or lime seltzer water–you can stir in some simple syrup!
Mixing a liquor with Sprite is a one of my favorite ways to make a low alcohol cocktail. You don’t even have to measure!
