You may not think of 7-Up as a cooking ingredient but the citrusy soda has marketed itself as useful in the kitchen.
More than just a drink? This vintage advertisement shows how 7-Up can replace liquids in packaged pancake mix.
A vintage 7-Up cooking booklet provides a wide range of 7-Up recipes:
From glazing hams to cake icing, 7-Up can even be mixed with thawed sherbet to make a delightful punch.
The booklet states, “Seven-Up can be an exciting new ingredient for those housewives who are always alert for ways to put ‘something extra’ into their favorite recipes.”
