DP shootout cocktail

DP Shootout

One night my friend @sorryimtexan introduced me to this delicious yet dangerous drink originating from Lubbock, Texas called the DP Shootout. It tastes just like Dr. Pepper® but doesn’t actually contain any of the soda. It is made up of vodka, amaretto and coke and can be dangerous because it really doesn’t taste like it has any alcohol. It’s easy to whip together when playing bartender. You are also supposed to add two straws to the drink and see who can drink it faster (hence, shootout) but I prefer to sip on it at a more leisurely pace.



1.5 ounces vodka, I use Tito’s

1.5 ounces Amaretto

6 ounces Coca-Cola®



Add ice to a lowball glass and add the vodka, Amaretto and coke to the glass. Stir to combine. Serve immediately with a straw.


Makes 1 (8-ounce) drink.
