Flaming Dr. Pepper is among the most popular flaming shots you can make, and the soda in question is not necessary. A slight flare-up causes rum, amaretto, and beer to combine to mimic the flavor of Dr. Pepper as they are ignited.

There is always the possibility that the larger glass will break and spread burning alcohol all over your bar or table.
- It is essential to this shot that the rum is present. Normally 80-proof rum does not ignite on fire, and even if it does, the effect it has will be different.
