Pint of Beer and shot of Amaretto on a bar

Dr. Pepper is a wonderful soft drink with a unique flavor and a large base of everyday consumers. It is also the name of a shot that tastes exactly like the soft drink. The Dr. Pepper shot is easy to make, fun to drink, and requires very little in the way of ingredients.
