Fireball and Sprite Cocktail Recipe

Looking for a uniquely flavored cocktail? A Fireball and Sprite is the perfect drink, easy to make and full of flavor.

Fireball and Sprite is an easy drink made in 1 minute! Simply Combine Fireball and Sprite in a tall glass for a bubbly highball cocktail.

I like to add a cocktail cherry or fresh cranberries during the holidays. I just love festive garnishes.

What is Fireball and Sprite called?

There’s no official name for a Fireball and Sprite cocktail. It is typically referred to as a Whisky and Sprite. Personally I call it a ‘Fire Elf’ lol. Seriously though…I really do. (Sprites are elves in mythology.)


How to make this easy cocktail? Grab these ingredients and pour them into a glass — you’re done in 1 minute!

  • Fireball – Of course you’ll need some Fireball. 
  • Sprite – You’ll need Sprite. I use Diet Sprite which works too.
  • Ice – Any ice works. I use traditional ice cubes. 
  • Garnish – This is totally optional. I like a cocktail cherry or lemon peel.

The lemon-lime sweetness of the Sprite balances out the smokiness and spice of Fireball whisky.

Sprite to Fireball ratio

You can adjust the strength of this cocktail to your preferred taste.

  • For a strong drink, do a 4:1 ratio – equal amounts of liquor and mixer.
  • For a lighter drink, do a 1:8 ratio – double the amount of Sprite.  

I’m a bit of a lightweight, so I like to add an just an ounce of Fireball. 

When to serve a Fireball and Sprite

Fireball and Sprite is easy to make. It’s great for spicing things up and serving as a:

  • Summer drink
  • Afternoon drink
  • Cocktail hour drink
  • Festive holiday drink

This refreshing cocktail works anytime, and a favorite among colorful characters.

This simple drink is just the thing when you don’t have the time or ingredients to make another drink. Fireball and Sprite is a delicious cocktail combination that’s so easy to make!

This is one of my go to cocktails when I want a cocktail–and I want something quick 🙂


  1. Instead of ice, pour the Sprite and Fireball over a scoop of vanilla ice cream to make a boozy float. 
  2. Brighten it up with a squeeze of citrus – I like to use about an ounce of fresh lemon juice. 
  3. Experiment with garnishes like lemon wheels or lemon wedges for extra citrus flavor.

Citrus and whisky have always been a staple in the cocktail world because the two are a great pairing.

What if I don’t have any Sprite?

If you’re all out of Sprite, there are several soda substitutions, including:

  • Sierra Mist
  • 7-Up
  • Fresca
  • Store brand lemon lime soda

A soda like Mountain Dew will be a lot more intense/sweet and may mask the strong Fireball taste a bit.

You can also use a lemon or lime seltzer water–you can stir in some simple syrup!
