Easy two ingredient Gin and Sprite Cocktail recipe is packed with flavor and tastes amazing.
Gin and Sprite Cocktail Recipe
I love the blend of citrus flavor from Sprite with the botanical and juniper berry flavor of Gin.
I wasn't sure how I would feel about the gin mixed with Sprite, but it tastes amazing. I have started to fall in love with gin drinks the more I work them.
Popular Gin drinks include French 75, Tom Collins, Gin and Tonic, Gimlet, Aviation, Gimlet, Gin Martini, gin rickey, and a Gin Fizz.
This is a quick overview of the simple ingredients that you'll need to make an epic Gin Sprite Cocktail! Specific measurements and step-by-step instructions are included in the printable recipe card at the bottom of the post.
Garnish - Fresh Lime Wedge
Optional - Squeeze in a bit of fresh lime juice, mint leaves garnish
Gin - You can use your favorite gin including Tanqueray London dry gin, Plymouth gin, Old tom gin, or New Western Dry gin. You can also use a flavored gin like cucumber gin, strawberry gin, Empress 1908 gin, or your favorite gin.
Sprite - You can use regular Sprite, Sprite zero, or any variation and flavor of Sprite you enjoy. Sprite Cherry would be a fun twist on this cocktail.
Rocks Glass - Rocks glasses are also called lowball glasses or old fashioned glasses.
Bartending Spoon - The long handle on bartending spoons makes it really easy to stir the cocktails and not make a mess.
OXO angled jiggers - these are our go-to measuring tools for cocktails. They work perfectly for pouring in layers for cocktails.
Ice Cube maker - This ice cube maker produces the most amazing cubes of ice perfect for cocktails. It easily fits in the freezer, and you can make up to 3 trays of round ball ice at a time.
How to make Tequila and Sprite
I've included complete instructions in the printable recipe card at the bottom of the post, but here's a quick version.
Step 1 - Add ice to a rocks glass
Step 2 - Pour gin into the glass and top with Sprite
Step 3 - Garnish with a Lime Wedge
Preparation and Storage
Make Ahead – We do not suggest making this ahead of time. You don't want to lose the carbonation from the Sprite.
Storage – This is a cocktail that is hard to store due to the carbonation in the Sprite.
Substitutions - Try making this great Sprite Cocktail with flavored Sprite including Sprite Cherry, Sprite Tropical Mix, or Sprite Lymonade. This can also be made with tonic water to make a Gin and Tonic.
Vegetarian Option - This recipe is vegetarian
Vegan Option – This recipe is vegan
Gluten Free - This recipe should be gluten-free. Double check for hidden gluten if you are concerned about the gin.
Alcohol Free Option – NA Non-Alcoholic Gin can be used for this recipe. There are some great zero proof gins on the market.
Smaller Serving Size – This recipe currently makes one cocktail. You can make a smaller serving or change the amount of gin that is used.
Larger Group/More servings – This recipe can easily be doubled or more for larger events. If you are serving this for a large event make sure it doesn't sit out for to long so you don't lose the carbonation of the Sprite.
Sugar Free – Diet Sprite or Sprite Zero Sugar can be used to lower the calories and sugar
You can adjust the number of ounces of Gin in your cocktail based on taste and how strong you want the drink to be.
Soda is a fantastic mixer for cocktails. We love mixing with Coke, 7-up, ginger beer, root beer, cream soda, club soda, and other flavors of soda pop.
There is no need for a cocktail shaker for this mixed drink recipe. Shaking the Sprite will create a bubbly mess from the carbonation.
If you are looking to mix with club soda I would check out a gin rickey that includes Gin, fresh squeezed lime juice, and club soda.

What to serve with
