Flaming Dr. Pepper Shot Recipe

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.

This shot is available either as a dropped shot (also known as a bomb) or you can build it inside of People sometimes use a shot by leaving the flame on after dropping it, but this is not the best way to be safe. 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.
