Tips & Tricks

  • I recommend serving these immediately since the soda will go flat if made in advance or left to sit for too long.
  • Do not stir long or hard, as it will flatten the soda. It only takes a quick swish of the spoon to get it mixed well.
  • I do not recommend mixing these in a cocktail shaker before serving since it will cause the soda to go flat. Ew, it’s not a tasty outcome.
  • You’re more than welcome to use any clear soda that’s similar to 7UP. Whatever you have on hand or the brand you prefer is just fine.
  • If you want a stronger cocktail, you can remove an ounce of the 7UP and replace it with another ounce of either the vodka or Midori, whichever you prefer.
  • If you can’t find Midori, other green melon liqueur should do the trick.

FAQs about Grinch Cocktail Creation

It's best to serve the Grinch Cocktail immediately after making it. The soda (7UP) in the cocktail can go flat if it's made too far in advance or left to sit for a long time.

Absolutely! If you prefer a stronger cocktail, consider adding an extra ounce of vodka or Midori, reducing the 7UP proportionately. Adjust to your taste preference.

A quick swish of the cocktail spoon is all it takes. Avoid stirring too long or too hard as it can flatten the soda.

For a chilled cocktail without ice, ensure all your ingredients are refrigerated before mixing. This will keep your drink cold without the need for ice.
