Dirty Dr. Pepper #Recipe @PegCochran

I'd heard of dirty martinis--a character ordered one in a movie--I think it was one of the Ironman movies.  I had no idea what it was so of course, being ever curious, I had to look it up.  You probably already know that a dirty martini has some of the olive juice added to it.

I recently came across the term "Dirty Dr. Pepper."  A little research revealed that it is a drink created by a soda shop somewhere in Utah.  It sounded like the perfect non-alcoholic drink to serve at a Labor Day get-together.

All the recipes I found varied in terms of quantity and while most recipes called for coconut syrup, some suggested vanilla or even fruit flavors.  I happened to have a bottle of vanilla syrup on hand so I went with that.  My glass only held a half a can of soda so if you are doctoring (no pun intended) a whole can, double the quantities.  Of course they are fluid--use less or more to taste.

Fill a tall glass with ice--crushed ice if you have it

Squeeze in the juice of a quarter of a lime (I would add more next time because it tasted so refreshing.)  Add lime wedge to glass

Grab your can of Dr. Pepper (you can substitute Coke if you like and use diet or regular soda)

Pour Dr. Pepper or soda of your choice over ice

Add a tablespoon of syrup--in this case vanilla--or more to taste

Add a drizzle of cream (optional but yummy)

Stir, add a straw and ENJOY.  Ahhhhhhhh...
