An Alcoholic Dr Pepper, also known as a Dr Pepper Shandy, is a beer cocktail.

It does not actually contain any Dr Pepper. Instead, as with the Cheeky Vimto, it combines alcoholic drinks that give a flavour similar to the soft drink.


Served in a pint glass, it comprises half a pint of lager and a third to half a pint of cola. A shot glass of amaretto is dropped into the glass as a 'depth charge'[1].


There is a variant known as the Flaming Dr Pepper. This is made from lager and a shot, without any cola. The shot glass is three-quarters filled with Amaretto, and a quarter high-proof liquor. The shot is then set on fire and dropped into a glass half-filled with beer.

There is also a variant known as the 'Chronic Alcoholic Dr Pepper'. This replaces the normal lager (4% or 5% alcohol) with a super-strength variety such as Carlsberg Special Brew or Tennent's Super (around 9% alcohol).
