Have you had a DIRTY drink yet?

I am not much of a soda drinker.  But, I LOVE Dr. Pepper… once in a blue moon.  And, when it’s a DIRTY DR. PEPPER…I could seriously drink this every single day!

    • The coconut syrup is usually found by the flavored syrups in the soda isle. But since it took me 5 grocery stores to find it…I already had it in my cart with Amazon. I should have started there! (My patience wasn’t very happening…5 stores and 3 counties!) Thanks Amanda!

  2. I’ve never heard of this! Now, you know, I have to try one!! Great pictures!

  10. All I need to go out and buy is the coconut syrup. I don’t drink a lot of pop/soda (we call it pop here in NY!) very often either but I do have a soft spot for Dr. Pepper!
    Ashley @ Wishes and Dishes recently posted…Super Moist Carrot CakeMy Profile

    • We used to call it pop when I was little…don’t know how we got to call it soda. Kind of like supper and dinner. Funny.
      Thanks Ashley! (=

  11. Dr. Pepper is my favorite thing in the whole world. This sounds like a great way to spruce it up!!

  16. I love these! In Utah, there is a drive thru store that gives you these. I duplicated the coconut syrup. You can find the recipe here:http://recipesfromstephanie.blogspot.com/2013/07/dirty-dr-pepper-swig-style.html?m=1

    • I keep hearing about Swig, but haven’t had the chance to go down there yet. I’m up by Park City and it seems all the ma and pops drive-ups are serving some dirty drinks. It must be a Utah thing… (=
      Thank you for sharing how to make the coconut syrup Steph! A few of the stores around here do not sell coconut syrup…I ended up getting it from Harmon’s. (But there is some on Amazon.) Love your recipe, very simple!

  17. This looks and sounds amazing. I’m betting it would be nice with the addition of some coconut flavored rum, too.

  18. You can also find syrups in the coffee isle. Otherwise make a simple syrup with equal parts water and white sugar, bring to a boil until sugar dissolves. Let cool completely and add 1/2 tsp – 1 tsp of coconut extract to every one cup of simple syrup, according to taste. Keep stored in fridge up to two weeks.

  19. I have been seeing the “dirty” drinks everywhere in the blog world – thanks for sharing the recipe!

  20. When I was in college in Missouri in the 60′s my roommate was from a small town near Buffalo, NY. Her Dad came with her stuff and while in MO. he discovered Dr. Pepper – never heard of it. He took 6 cases home, Now with the TV and internet it is had to believe Dr. Pepper was not in Buffalo. Where do you buy coconut syrup?

    • That is so interesting to hear about how he’d bring the Dr. Pepper to her. You can find some coconut syrup in the isle in the grocery store usually by the beverages/sodas. It is by all of the flavored syrups. I sometimes by it off of Amazon because we live far from town. Thanks so much for stopping by, Carola! Hope you enjoy the rest of your week and into the weekend!

    My friends and I created a similar drink. Instead of the coconut syrup we used coconut rum and a splash of cranberry/apple juice. We call it a Dr. CranCoconut ;)

  22. Hello there! Quick question that’s totally off topic.
    Do you know how to make your site mobile
    friendly? My site looks weird when viewing from my apple iphone.
    I’m trying to find a template or plugin that might be able to resolve this issue.

    If you have any suggestions, please share. Thanks!
