Drink Recipes Flaming Dr Pepper

The Flaming Dr. Pepper is the current fave of the thrill-seeking, bar-hopping set…comprised mainly of college kids and bachelorette party attendees. If nothing says “super-fun!” to you like beer aflame, read on.

FLAMING DR. PEPPER

Crowd-Pleaser Version:
Fill 3/4 of a shot glass with Amaretto and top it off with 151 proof rum. Light the rum, drop it into a glass of beer to depth-charge the fire and chug.

Granny Version:
Fill 3/4 of a shot glass with Amaretto and top it off with 151 proof rum. Place it in a pint glass and pour beer around the outside, up to the level of the shot glass. Light the rum, pose for a photo op, then carefully blow out the fire before chugging.

Youtube Version
Fill 3/4 of a shot glass with Amaretto and top it off with 151 proof rum. Place it in a highball glass and pour beer around the outside, up to the level of the shot glass. Light the rum, make sure your buds are filming it for future internet infamy, then ignore the burning of your nose hairs and eyebrows as you chug.

The Flaming Dr. Pepper has been immortalized online in blogs and on The Simpsons; while it isn’t especially refreshing, the novelty of actual fire combined with the fact that it really does taste like Dr. Pepper isn’t likely to wear off any time soon.
