The 7 & Rye
The 7 and Rye is a newcomer to the mixology game, offering a unique but simple twist on the 7 and 7, which is a well-known, tried-and-true classic. The 7 and Rye builds upon its predecessor by replacing Canadian whiskey with some tasty American rye whiskey, which adds layers of complexity and spice.
The 7 and Rye is what’s known as a highball, a mixed cocktail composed of an alcoholic spirit and a larger proportion of a non-alcoholic beverage. In this case, strong and spicy rye whiskey with crisp and refreshing 7UP.

2 oz. Rye Whiskey
Fill a highball glass with ice cubes. Add whiskey, top with with 7UP or Diet 7UP, and give it a stir. Garnish with both a lemon peel twist and lime peel twist.
