    I was drinking this on High Street adjacent to the OSU in 1986. Not sure of the origin but the Aggies may not be able to claim it.

    The origins of this drink go way further back than 2009. Acuña, Coahuila, Mexico, across from Del Rio, Texas, 1991. Maybe even earlier.

    I don't know who created this combination, but they were wrong. The proper Flaming Dr. Pepper drink is this. Fill your shot glass 1/2 Root Beer Schnapps, 1/2 151 Bacardi Rum, Flame it, Drop in 3/4 glass full of Budweiser. Down that Biatch.

    The Flaming Dr. Pepper is a great recipe for playing "Stump the Bartender." My friend Zach and I won a round of FDP's at the elevated bar in Union Station on a 1991 audit trip to Washington. Great memories!

    You chug the drink and it taste like Dr Pepper. If you stop chugging and try to drink it again, it taste like arse. Gig 'em. This originated at the Ptarmigan Club in College Station.

    Miller Lite works the best--this is my fave drink, and i've tried a bunch of different beers, and miller lite is primo

    Great recipe. I had mine with a splash of Pepsi in the beer. Not sure what that was about.

    I have also used Jagermeister instead of amaretto which I think makes it taste a little more like Dr. Pepper. Coors Light makes a good beer to use (any light beer really).
