But anyway if you mix these 3 alcoholic beverages, (the best kind of beverages,) By some sort of Booze Miracle it tastes just like a frosty Dr. Pepper!

Teacher Notes

Teachers! Did you use this instructable in your classroom?
Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.

Step 1: Gather Ingredients..


All you need for this one is..

1/2 - 3/4 full glass of light beer.

1/2 shot of amaretto.

1/2 shot of 151 proof Rum

a lighter, a spoon, and a shot glass.

Step 2: Layer

This is the tricky part. Carefully layer the rum on top of the amaretto.

This takes a little bit of practice.. watch the video for further instructions.



*151 proof rum is required because most other brands are to low of a percentage of alcohol to ignite.

Step 3: Ingite!

Carefully Light the rum, this may take a few seconds to get lit and the blue flames are hard to see in well lit areas.

Step 4: The Fun Part! Drop & Chug!

Be careful while dropping the flaming shot into the beer, splashes or spills can cause fires and letting go of the shot glass to hard can shatter it.

Now you drop the shot glass in and pound the drink quickly. If this drink is made and drank correctly, it Tastes Just like a ice cold Dr. Pepper!

Like I said before, I have no idea how this works. I imagine there are different beers that could be used to perfect the Dr. Pepper flavor. Let me know if you guys have any ideas.

    This was my all-time favorite drink years ago. The truth is, that the first one does NOT taste like Dr Pepper....................EVERYTHING after that does. hahaha

    This question may seem a bit amateurish, but why the flame? Is it merely for the effect or does it do something magical to the flavor? Could one simply add all ingredients but skip the flames altogether, thereby avoiding the danger?

    Flame caramelizes some of the 151, giving it a slightly sugary feel. It doesn't do much, but it makes it a bit more palatable.

    It MAY concentrate the rum. You know, burn off some of the alcohol in the rum. Just a guess...

    It would become less concentrated if you burnt the alcohol out of it...

    It's just for aesthetics.

    If the alcohol was being burned off, it would become more concentrated, as there would be less liquid with the same amount of whatever gives rum its flavor dissolved in it. The proof would get weaker, but the flavor would get stronger.

    all the other comments make sense but personaly i think its just to make it look more awsome

    The 151 rum is not required to get the drink to taste like Dr Pepper. I've been making and drinking this shot for years and all you need is:

    *beer
    *amaretto
    *coke

    Drop the amaretto shot into the glass of beer and coke and chug away.

    Excellent party shot and no worries about burning off your 'brows :)

    Looks impressive, but I tried Dr. Pepper once. Why would you wish to emulate the taste?

    Because it is the all-time greatest beverage ever to have been conceived by mankind. In fact, legend has it that Dr. Pepper was actually an ancient and powerful drink of the gods, which was accidentally discovered thousands of years ago by Homer's lesser known but arguably more important cousin, Ed. Ed found the brew after Hades and Aphrodite had had a rousing game of celestial croquet, during which they consumed large quantities of this beverage. The bottle slipped from Hades' robe and fell to earth after he nearly fell off the heavens (THAT would have been a disaster!). Ed found the brew, and enjoyed it so much he spent the rest of his life attempting to recreate it, which he did. And Dr. Pepper was born.

    This year Dr. Pepper announced that if the band Guns 'n' Roses release their long overdue album (somewhere like 10 years overdue) in 2008, then they will give a free can of Dr Pepper to evry american citizen excluding their technically british guitarist; slash. if you ask me id release an album for a can of Dr P so why shouldnt they!

    The first and only time I tried Dr. Pepper was over 20 years ago, so I might be up to trying it again. Perhaps my tastes have changed. Perhaps if I tried your drink a few times, the taste probably wouldn't matter anyhoo...
