Cherry Dr. Pepper Cocktail

Have I mentioned that I LOVE Dr. Pepper? I mean, like, LOVE IT?! Well I do. A lot. I also happen to love Cherry Dr. Pepper a whole lot too. And you know what makes Dr. Pepper even better? Alcohol.

So when my best friend brought me a jar of homemade maraschino cherries (that she made) for my birthday I knew that I could make some very tasty adult beverages with them.  The first one (there will be more, don’t worry) is a Cherry Dr. Pepper cocktail.

These maraschino cherries are way better than the ones you buy at the store that are bright red. I hate those, but these are quite delicious. I strongly suggest finding yourself a jar or making some yourself. She tells me its pretty easy, but I’ll leave the cherry making to her.

Cherry Dr Pepper Cocktail

Here is what you will need to make 1 drink:

4 oz Dr Pepper (I used Dr Pepper 10 because it is what I had)

1 oz Dark Rum (I used Kraken)

1/2 oz cherry juice


Fill a lowball glass (aka “a short one”) with ice. Add 4 oz of Dr. Pepper, 1 oz of dark rum, and 1/2 oz of cherry juice. Give it a stir and top with 2 (or more) cherries. Ta da!

The ingredients shown will actually make two cocktails if you split the can of Dr. Pepper and the bottle of rum between two glasses. So you can be a nice person and share if you want. But I won’t think any less of you if you just make two for yourself 🙂
