With this incredible cold snap sweeping across the country its time to Heat Up the Pepper – Dr. Pepper that is! We first discovered this refreshing winter drink idea about 7 or 8 years ago when the local PBS station did a story on a restaurant in Black Mountain, NC with a Dr. Pepper theme. (The establishment is now closed.) One of their hot beverage suggestions on a cold day was piping hot Dr. Pepper with a squirt of lime. In fact, as I’m writing this we’re enjoying this delicious beverage. The recipe is simple:
- Dr. Pepper (regular, not diet or flavored)
- 1 – Lime (Lime juice will work)
- 1 – Mug or Coffee Cup
Put beverage in cup, put cup in microwave, heat until hot (2 minutes – time may need to be adjusted for your unit). Squeeze lime juice in to taste, and enjoy.
