Flaming Dr. Pepper
3 shots out of 5
WOW!!!!!!! Can you believe it? My year long challenge has officially come to an end! I have made, photographed, tried and blogged about THREE HUNDRED AND SIXTY SIX (seemed more dramatic in all caps) cocktails. WOW, that's an accomplishment I must say. I want to send a special Thank You out to my family who has allowed me to have my "cocktail time" every night so that I can do this. Also to Stephanie who gave me this idea and cheered me along the entire way! I definitely want to Thank all of you who have been with me since day 1, those of you who have found me somewhere along the way and those of you who have sent in your favorite recipes (I do still have a few more that have been sent in and will do my best to get to them soon). Without all of you, this sure would have been a boring challenge. Thank You!!
I gave tonight's cocktail 3 shots out of 5. I wanted to go out on fire (kinda like Katniss and Peeta) and decided on the Flaming Dr. Pepper. I found the recipe at Matador Network and did my best to capture it's flame on my camera. They are right, this cocktail does more or less taste like Dr. Pepper. It tastes more like it while it's still warm though I must say, so if you are going to make it, DRINK UP! But please put out the flame before you do so. This was a fun cocktail to make.....quite easy really. I will leave you with a few sequenced photos of this cocktail to look at.
Here is the recipe for a Flaming Dr. Pepper:
- 3/4 of a shot glass filled with amaretto
- 1/4 of a shot glass filled with Bacardi 151 rum
- a bottle of beer
Fill you shot glass first with the amaretto, then with the rum. Carefully place your shot glass in the center of a cocktail glass and fill that glass with beer just up until it hit the rim of the shot glass. Take a lighter and light the top of the liquid inside the shot glass on fire (please be careful and do not stand directly over your flame). Let your flame burn for a couple minutes and then blow it out and carefully drink it up.

I simply can not believe that this year is over. I will not stop here, so please continue to send in your favorite cocktail recipes or just shoot me an email to say hi.
