This simple Dr Pepper cocktail is infused with the comforting flavor of cake, with a kick of course! The perfect mixed drink for Dr Pepper lovers!
Perhaps I'm bias because Dr Pepper has always been my favorite soda, but much like free hugs and finding that missing sock, I think Dr Pepper cocktails are woefully under appreciated. There isn't a bar, tavern, speakeasy, or saloon you can stumble into that has Dr Pepper ready to spit from the soda gun.
It is always cola, lemon-lime soda, tonic water and the like. What about a Dr Pepper mixed drink?
When you think of a soda mixed drink, rum and coke is always the first to roll off people's tongues. However, I've always enjoyed it as a rum and Dr Pepper cocktail better. That got me thinking about what other liquors would compliment the 23 flavors of Dr Pepper well.
Recently one of my co-workers turn me on to the idea of using UV Cake Vodka to make a Dr Pepper cocktail. I thought the idea was ingenious, plus the name "Cake Doctor" sounded fun.
The soft familiar flavor of cake really shines against the carbonated backdrop of Dr Pepper in this cocktail. Add a splash of grenadine for another layer or flavor, or use Cherry Dr Pepper instead.
If you want to have some fun, have a gullible friend make this cocktail, but insist in 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.) If you aren't sure why this would be fun, give it a try yourself and then let everyone know how it went in the comments below!
