having it now :) yummers!!

By Mark on April 30th, 2011 at 10:00:54

I remember drinking this drink and felt as if I was falling off the world!!!

By jordan on April 10th, 2011 at 17:24:05

As classic as classic can be. Without substitutes. It's a 7&7 for a reason! Those two ingredients make a distinct taste nothing else can match. No sierra mist/sprite and no other whiskey. Otherwise its just a regular high ball

On the office, Ryan orders this for Kelly, who wants it with 8 marachino cherries and sugar on the rim. This was during the casino night episode in season 2.

Drink these with my old man watching the phillies play ball in the back yard

this drink is great but I love the whiskey sour!

By Liza on February 24th, 2011 at 16:29:24

It's really good if you add a dash of maraschino cherry juice and a couple of cherries to the glass...like a Shirley Temple, but for grownups!

I love this drink... Wowza, MEMORIES :)

By Joe on November 29th, 2010 at 19:15:35

7&7 is a great drink. I grew up in Brooklyn and this was the drink of choice back in the 80's.

By The mailman on November 23rd, 2010 at 09:32:46

I've been drinking this for 40 years. Has never failed to produce excellent results. Nice light drink not heavy like Jack and coke.Try and enjoy.

By David on October 16th, 2010 at 23:27:48

Jimmy Conway (Robert Di Nero) orders it in Goodfellas.

By hannah on April 6th, 2010 at 10:04:43

By Elizabeth on March 12th, 2010 at 17:55:18

Kind of funny.... I hate whiskey, but I love these.

By matt on March 7th, 2010 at 10:24:02

Good drink!
It's also on another film, Saturday Night Fever, as John Travolta's favorite club drink.

Hey Marko - This drink is also featured in the film Saturday Night Fever:) Want a real flashback? I recommend popping a couple disco biscuits washed down with a strong 7 and 7. Well, if you can find 'em. Nowadays people sometimes refer to ecstasy as "disco biscuits", but the original meaning was a slang term for Quaaludes. The '84 "biscuit ban" makes it a bit more difficult to get a true taste of the 60's/70's, but honestly..a GOOD 7 and 7 {or a few of them} will take you back all on its own:) Sorry..rambling after spotting another movie-buff. Maybe I should cut back on the 7&7s tonight haha.
Peace, Love & Whiskey

By Chris Benoit on February 18th, 2010 at 18:30:27

Last time i drank this drink started raging....hard. One thing led to another and i ended up making a BIG mess. Tasted great though

By the easter bunny on January 29th, 2010 at 21:28:57

7 and 7 is all that, don't take much to get the job done.

By pooper on January 25th, 2010 at 23:10:08

CC and 7 is good if you don't like seagrams. Or poop

By snoopy on January 20th, 2010 at 00:05:13

I have never heard of this drink, now someday I can act cool and order it for a girl.

By Benjamin on January 5th, 2010 at 17:22:32

I invented the 7 and 7

By Marko on January 3rd, 2010 at 17:09:41

this drink appears in the film Mean Streets. I always wondered what it was so thanks

By MartyS on December 7th, 2009 at 17:23:08

By Daniel Boone on August 15th, 2009 at 17:21:25

best drink i've ever had...led to a threesome later that night

By Amanda on August 10th, 2009 at 19:16:13

I drink 7 and 7's when I'm already wasted. Otherwise Seagrams tastes like sewage.

By al on July 17th, 2009 at 10:43:04

Make it diet 7up and seagram 7 for you diabetics

By blueeyez43087 on June 24th, 2009 at 01:48:25

By x on May 25th, 2009 at 13:18:42

I'm with you, Sharon. If I don't have it for a long time, I forget how much I hate whiskey. Then I try it again... Blech!

By jerk on March 30th, 2009 at 21:39:36

By Sharon on March 29th, 2009 at 22:39:44

I didn't like it, but I also dislike whiskey.
