sweet tea

Sweet Ice Tea is one of the best drinks for the summer. Sweet tea is commonly enjoyed in the southern states more than others, but it makes no difference which state you are in as long as you have some tea and sugar. Sweet tea is made from black tea leaves, brewed per the directions on the box, then infused with sugar water (or simple syrup) usually to taste. The taste for sweet tea drinkers is to have the tea sweet, very sweet, hence the sweet part in the name sweet tea. Since summer is here I would suggest making a nice pitcher of the iced tea, pouring it over a full cup of ice, and enjoying the refreshing flavors of sweet tea.

The 23 Flavors of Dr. Pepper

What are the 23 Flavors of Dr Pepper?  According to the Dr. Pepper webiste, “Dr. Pepper is a unique blend of 23 flavors. The formula for Dr. Pepper is proprietary information.”  It is true that the twenty-three ingredients found in the soda are a closely guarded secret, and has been since the cola’s introduction in 1904 at the Louisiana Purchase Exposition.  Noone knows for sure what the flavors are, however there are some guesses floating around the internet…the most common guess at the flavors I’ve found include: Amaretto, Almond, Blackberry, Black Licorice, Caramel, Carrot, Clove, Cherry, Raspberry, and Vanilla, among other flavors.

The flavor of Dr. Pepper is hard to describe  – some people think that amaretto mixed with club soda, or amaretto mixed with cola taste exactly like Dr. Pepper;  others claim that Dr. Pepper tastes slightly similar to cherry-flavored root beer.  There are even rumors that Dr. Pepper contains prune juice – however, this is the one flavor that the cola’s website does address – Dr. Pepper officially says in it’s FAQs “Dr Pepper is a unique blend of natural and artificial flavors,  it does not contain prune juice.”
