This Ain’t Your Daddy’s Dr. Pepper: National Cocktail Day Recipe

Hello, everyone! I hope that you all are excited!! Today is National Cocktail Day. I have to admit a little that I do love to come up with different recipes to share with you all. Today I would like to show you how easy it is to make a “Dr.Pepper” using the Keurig KOLD drink maker

Most of my followers know how much I adore using this machine; it is just so much fun! I did two drink recipes already, and they would be great for the upcoming Easter holiday. You can check out the Peep On The Water Recipe or if you are looking for something family friendly, check out the Bunny Tracks Float. YUMMM!

My husband and I both worked in a bar for a period, and one of the most common drinks that we would make is a “Dr.Pepper”. The original “Dr.Pepper” is a shot of Disaronno in beer, but personally, I just don’t like beer, and I know I am not the only one out there. 

So instead of using beer I used the Spiced Root Beer from Red Barn, this worked perfectly.  This root beer is actually unique but still gives you that classic root beer flavor that we have all grown to love. To transport this beautiful beverage into something entirely different and unique for your to enjoy this National Cocktail Day add a shot of Disaronno.

I added the Disaronno just as we did in a bar. You fill a shot glass or shooter glass (the shooter glass fits better into the Keurig KOLD Glasses) and gently drop it into the glass of root beer. Sip, enjoy and relax. That is what it is really all about, right?

Using the KOLD drink maker makes it so easy to explore all kinds of different recipes you might come up with. If you have not checked out my posting about the drink maker itself, it is a must! If you have a chance to check out, this recipe let me know. I would love to hear what you think and if you enjoyed it. 

Love this recipe but can’t check it out today? Pin the image at the top of the post for later 🙂
