The 007 cocktail is a refreshing blend of three simple ingredients: orange juice, vodka, and 7 Up. It's named after the famous British secret agent, James Bond, who is known for his love of martinis. However, unlike Bond's usual choice of cocktail, the 007 is light, fruity, and easy to drink.

  • Who would like it?

    If you enjoy light, citrusy cocktails, the 007 is for you. It's perfect for summer parties or any occasion where you want a simple, refreshing drink.

How 007 Tastes?

The 007 cocktail is a light and refreshing drink with a citrusy tang. The sweetness of the orange juice and 7 Up balance out the sharpness of the vodka, resulting in a smooth, easy-to-drink cocktail.

Interesting facts about 007

  • Despite its name, the 007 cocktail is a relatively light drink, making it a popular choice for summer parties.
  • The 007 cocktail is incredibly easy to make, requiring just three ingredients and no special equipment.


A few good options for 007 are:

  • Grey Goose
  • Belvedere
  • Khor
  • Smirnoff

Orange Juice

The orange juice is the sweet, tart backbone of this cocktail; it sets the tone for a fruity, refreshing experience. Using 4 oz gives the right balance - less can make the drink too weak, more can be overpowering. Sans OJ, you'd lose the 'sunshine in a glass' vibe. Alternatively, try grapefruit juice for a tangy twist.

2 oz of vodka ensures that '00' punch without knocking you off your '7'. It provides a robust alcohol profile that doesn't compete with the flavors. Omitting vodka equals a mocktail, while swapping for gin might make it feel like a citrusy spy out of a British novel.

7 Up

The 7 Up introduces effervescence and sweetness, turning the drink from flat to fabulous with a 4 oz pour. Substituting for a different soda can greatly alter the taste; think about club soda for less sweetness or ginger ale for a spicy kick. Going fizz-free? Not on our watch, agent!

And of course - twists🍹


  • Pineapple Juice: Substitute the orange juice for pineapple juice.
  • Coconut Rum: Use 1 oz of vodka and 1 oz of coconut rum.
  • Sprite: Replace 7 Up with Sprite for a lighter sweetness. The tropical profile of this drink would be perfect for a beach-themed party, transporting your taste buds to a Caribbean hideout.


  • Cranberry Juice: Use 2 oz of cranberry juice in place of orange juice.
  • Lime Soda: Opt for a tangy lime soda instead of 7 Up.
  • A Splash of Triple Sec: Add half an ounce of Triple Sec to deepen the citrus flavor. This drink turns up the tartness and is best enjoyed while plotting world domination or at least, winning at poker night.

The Spy Who Loved Me

  • Blood Orange Juice: Swap regular OJ for blood orange juice.
  • Tonic Water: Replace 7 Up with tonic water for a bitter edge.
  • Aperol: Add a splash of Aperol for a bittersweet twist. Paying homage to the romantic side of espionage, this variation offers a deeper, more sophisticated flavor for those who like their cocktails stirred, not shaken.

In case you forgot basics how to make 007

Insert the spoon into the glass until it touches the bottom. Keep the back of the spoon against the inside wall of the glass, and stir in a smooth, circular motion. The goal is to swirl the ice and ingredients together without churning or splashing.
