This simple Dr Pepper cocktail is infused with the delicious flavor of cake, with a kick of course! The perfect mixed drink for Dr Pepper lovers!
Perhaps I'm biased because Dr Pepper has always been my favorite soda, but much like free hugs and finding that missing sock, I think the taste of Dr Pepper cocktails are woefully underappreciated. There isn't a bar, tavern, speakeasy, or saloon you can stumble into that has this American classic ready to spit from the soda gun. It is always cola, lemon-lime soda, tonic water and the like. What about Dr Pepper cocktails?
When you think of classic cocktails made with soda, rum and coke are always the first to roll off people's tongues. However, I've always enjoyed it as a Captain Morgan and Dr Pepper cocktail better. This got me thinking about what other liquors would complement the 23 flavors of Dr Pepper well, and with the help of a few simple ingredients my Cake Doctor cocktail was born!
What is it?
The distinct flavor of cake vodka really shines against the carbonated backdrop of Dr Pepper in this cocktail. Add a splash of grenadine to give this unique drink another layer of flavor, or rely on the fruity notes of Cherry Dr Pepper instead. This is a great drink for summer barbecues, parties, or when you are just thirsty for an easy mixed drink that requires very little preparation time.
How to make this cocktail
To make this easy mixed drink, first, pour one part cake flavored vodka into a cocktail glass with ice cubes.
Next, add two parts Dr Pepper along with a splash of grenadine on top and stir everything to combine. That's it, no shaking needed!
However, if you want to have some fun, have a gullible friend make this cocktail, but insist it needs to be shaken properly first in a cocktail shaker. Then stand back and enjoy the show. (I wouldn't recommend doing this in your own house.)
