    Hi, I am Josh Dubois, and today I am showing you, how to make a bunch of different kinds of shots and right now, I am going to show you how to make a Flaming Doctor Pepper.

    This drink is pretty dangerous and should under no circumstances be tried at all by anyone at any time. So, we are going to show you how to make this. First, you take a beer, really any kind of light beer will do, you don t want to use a darker beer. Go ahead and pour your beer in about to there. It s about little under half of a beer.

    Next you are going to take a shot glass and you are going to fill the shot glass up to almost the top with Amaretto. This is where the real Doctor Pepper flavor comes from. Carbonation of the doctor pepper comes from the beer, the flavor comes from the Amaretto, that s the most important.

    Now, for the flame, the flame comes from 151 and this is a specific kind of liquor, that you have to use, you can really use any kind of Amaretto, any kind of beer, you have to use 151 because it s the only thing that is strong enough to actually light on fire. So, you are going to pour your 151 on top there. So, it is like a lighter fluid on top. Then, take a lighter, light it on fire, take it, drop it in and chug. That s how you make a Flaming Doctor Pepper. Next, we are going to be showing you how to make one of my favorite shots, the End One shot.
