The Flaming Dr Pepper was created by Dave Brinks at Gold Mine Saloon in New Orleans Louisiana after a loss by the New Orleans Saints.
It is usually made by filling a shot glass with 3 parts Amaretto and 1 part high-proof liquor, such as Everclear or Bacardi 151. The two liquors are not mixed; the high-proof alcohol is layered on top of the Amaretto. The shot is then set on fire and dropped into a glass half-filled with beer. The flames are extinguished by the beer, and the cocktail should then be drunk quickly.
