RECIPE

Flaming Dr Pepper Shot

Supercall

Bars in both Texas and Louisiana take credit for inventing this fiery shot, but no one knows for sure who first thought to mix amaretto with rum and drop the whole thing, flaming, into a glass of beer. Here’s what we do know: The shot contains no Dr Pepper, and yet, somehow, it tastes just like the sugary soft drink. It’s science at its tastiest.
