Hi there Koelsum, As far as I know 7up is a lemonade type drink similar to Sprite. As for the Bisquick baking mix is a pre-mixed flour and shortening mixture for making biscuits. Here is a quick substitution - 1 cup biscuit mix = 1 cup flour + 1 1/2 tsp baking powder + 1/2 tsp salt + 1 tbsp butter or margarine. Just out of interest, what was the recipe for? And do let us know how it turns out!

I had the same problem, no bisquick in South Africa. The recipe I have for 7 up American-style biscuits. The temperature is in Farenheit. 7 Up Biscuits 4 cups Bisquick 1 cup sour cream 1 cup 7-up 1/2 cup melted butter Mix bisquick, sour cream and 7 up. Dough will be very soft - don't worry. Knead and fold dough until coated with your baking mix. Pat dough out and cut biscuits using a round biscuit / cookie cutter. Melt butter in bottom of cookie sheet pan or 9x13 casserole dish. Place biscuits on top of melted butter and bake for 12-15 minutes or until brown at 425 degrees.
