This is actually the first cocktail recipe I’ve ever shared on Sugar, Spice & Glitter! I’ve always been hesitant but after several requests from readers, I’ve acquiesced! I actually used to bartend before university and responsibly enjoy a cocktail with friends every once in a while, so why not?
This “Dirty Dr Pepper Cocktail” was one that I made often as a bartender and funny enough, contains no Dr. Pepper!
This Dirty Dr Pepper Cocktail tastes exactly like Dr. Pepper but is actually made with a combination of liqueurs and Coca-Cola. I’ve also made it with half beer and half coke, with the liqueurs poured in, but I personally prefer it without the beer.
This is a fun drink for summer barbecues as you can prepare a big pitcher for guests to self-serve from. I’ve provided both the individual measurements for a single cocktail, and the measurements for a pitcher.
How to Make a Dirty Dr Pepper Cocktail
For a single cocktail, fill a glass with ice and pour in:
- 1 oz Amaretto
- 1 oz cinnamon alcohol (Goldschlager or Fireball)
- 1/2 can coke
(If using beer, add an equal amount of beer as coke.)
For a full pitcher of Dr Pepper Cocktails, mix:
- 1/2 cup Amaretto
- 1/2 cup cinnamon alcohol (Goldschlager or Fireball)
- 3 cups Coca-Cola
Add the ice to individual glasses before serving to avoid watering down the cocktails.
