Warmed Dr. Pepper Wed, 01/23/08 2:54 PM (permalink)
Hi,
When I spent summers in North Carolina, I found many people warmed up a mug of Dr.Pepper and drank it like hot chocolate. Try it..it's delicious..especially on a cold night!

    I can't. I just...can't. Sorry.

    This has never happened to me in North Carolina.

      I remember seeing the commercials for hot Dr. Pepper with a squeeze of lemon when I was a kid. The scenario was Canadian trappers around a campfire talking about the fact that "Pierre" had really lost it because he was drinking his Dr. Pepper hot. I think we tried it once or twice but never developed a liking for it.

          If you would try it twice, you could host Bizarre Foods.

            We had it often in my younger days...with a slice of lemon floating on the surface of a steaming coffee mug full of Dr Pepper.

            The ads were very similiar to the Mug-of-soup on a winter day ads put out by Campbells Soups. Remember the Kitchen scene with kids and mugs at the table..frostin windows with winter snow scene outside.???

              In Texas it's a standard drink. It's not the same everywhere?

              I really does change the flavor ALLOT!!! A splash of Bourbon and you have a Dr-Tottie.

                If you're all clogged up, hot Dr. Pepper will do wonders.

                  Yes, the ads had hot DP in a glass coffee cup and saucer, with the slice of lemon afloat. I had a black & white 16mm copy of it in my high school (Skyline) cinematography class in Dallas, home to DP. BTW, there is still a plant (the oldest one) in Dublin, TX, that uses only cane sugar in their DP. I buy cases of the stuff here in LA.
                  Remember how DP suggested you drink it at 10, 2, and 4?

                        Wow, I never ran into this drink when I lived in Houston or Austin!

                        Should I be glad or did I really miss something?

                          Roaster, It's not something you would run into, even in Texas. I have never seen it served at a restaurant or bar. Really missing something??? Hey, try it and you can... tell us.

                            I'd drink hot Dr Pepper on Wisconsin winter nights when I couldn't sleep due to chest congestion and a looming book deadline. It's rather pleasant.
                            Hot Jolt on the other hand-- that experiment turned out to be an inutterable abomination.

                              We always called this Flaming Dr. Pepper in high school. Not that I had a drop of it before I turned 21.

                                  I tried it and it was lousy. However I do think that Dr Pepper is the best soda to drink with Mexican food. My favorite beer with Mexican food is Tecate...Russ

                                      Russ, I agree w/ you about something, Tacate! I like mine in the can w/ lime and salt around the rim. Lousy??? Maybe it was the brand of bourbon you put in the Pepper????

                                        Hot Dr Pepper was mentioned on a Barney Miller episode. When there was a water shortage Wojo heated some up to replace the coffee.
                                        Barney spit it out.

                                              I was only referring to warm Dr Pepper that I did not care for. I have never tried Bourbon and Dr. Pepper. Also I dont think I would put really good Bourbon in any soda. I like it straight. I do have the occasional Jack and Coke next time I will try it with Dr Pepper. Heck I will even try it warm if you like. I love Irish Coffee...Russ

                                                Lee, yep, it'l warm you up!

                                                Russ, oh.. thought you ment w/ the Bourbon. Your right, no expensive Bourbon needed. Thats just a waste. Even Jack would be more expensive than would use. And ohhh, I forgot to say I like a squize of lime w/ mine.

                                                Hmm, maybe I'll start a thread about cheep wisky???

                                                    Ohhhh, you meen the finest Kentucky Bourbon. Hey, it says so right on the bottle. JTS has been my brand since I was... hmmmm nevermind. Like Fast Eddie says, "JS Brown...no ice... no glass", or was it the other way around? I knew there was something I liked about you Russ, I just could't put my finger on it.

                                                    Oh, this is the DR. Pepper thread. Why don't you start the cheep wiskey thread Russ.

                                                          I grew Up in Minot Northdakota.

                                                          Nothing Like having Dr. Warming up in the coffee maker while I delivered my newspapers at -30 degrees with out windchill.

                                                          Come home to that HOT Dr. Pepper. Man that was nice.

                                                          I have not had it in years, but still do drink a 6 pack of Dr, Pepper a day.

                                                            Want something really sweet... hot Dr. Pepper and Southern Comfort.
