FRIDAY 3 O’CLOCK COCKTAILS: Flaming Dr. Pepper

Skipping right over the disgusting college-boy Jägerbomb and moving onto a bomb shot that involves fire and the possibility of singeing your whiskers. The Flaming Dr. Pepper consists of of shot of 3 parts Amaretto and 1 part Bacardi 151 (or another high proof liquor like Everclear) which is then dropped into into a 3/4 pint of beer. Before dropping the shot, however, the rum floating on top is lit on fire then carefully plunked into the pint glass. Like the other two depth charges, it requires a quick chug.

3/4 shot amaretto almond liqueur
1/4 oz 151 proof rum
1/2 glass beer

1. Fill a shot glass about 3/4 full with amaretto and top it off with enough 151 proof rum to be able to burn.

2. Place the shot glass in another glass and fill the outer glass with beer (right up to the level of the shot glass).

3. Ignite the amaretto/151 and let it burn for a while. Blow it out (or leave it burning if you’re brave – not recommended) and slam it. Tastes just like Dr. Pepper.
