15 Sprite Cocktails You Need to Try ASAPaoût 3, 2020
Most of us reserve that Sprite goodness for when we’re feeling nausea on the horizon, right? Sprite, saltines, and sleep are always the things that make me feel better. Because of her sick-day only reputation, most of us probably don’t reach for Sprite when we need a mixer, but let’s give her a chance to be your designated beverage, shall we?
Sprite is one of the most versatile beverage options out there, IMO. Its lemon-lime flavor and bubbly texture allow it to ~complement~ literally any drink without overpowering the other flavors in your concoction.
Another huge plus: You can find Sprite pretty much anywhere. From your nearest grocery store to the hot dog cart outside your office, it’s always a well-stocked soda. Oh! And it’s also real cheap (totaling at $1.74 for a 2 L. bottle). Basically, there’s no reason not to mix it with the alcohols.
Since you may not have been the biggest proponent of Sprite before (It’s okay. People change.), we’ve compiled some of the best, most creative cocktails that utilize the carbonated beverage to get you started. If you’re doing it right, you’ll likely have extra Sprite leftover for when your hangover hits. Sprite really can conquer all.
