User Rating 4.5 Star Rating (2 Reviews)


Shot Glass

Glass Guide- Shot Glass

This mix is supposed to taste like Dr. Pepper and can be made a couple of different ways. It's common that the shot of liquor is lit aflame then dropped into a half glass of beer. You can also make it by placing the shot glass filled with liquor into the larger glass, after which the beer is poured around the edges, just to the rim. and the liquor is lit.

Whichever way you choose to pour your Flaming Dr. Pepper, remember to blow out the flame prior to consumption and, as with any flaming drink, be careful.

A good drink but be careful, Member NinjaMidget

Me and a couple friends were doing Flaming Dr. Pepper's one night, and we all had the worst hangovers from that drink. I didn't feel better for three days. It tastes great and it's a fun drink...but unless you love pain, I would limit consumption to one.
