Make sure to REPIN this recipe

So this is a really special recipe because my husband taught it to me

Way back in 2008 Christmas time ( this was our first Christmas together though we had been friends for year previous – we met working at Disneyland πŸ™‚ ) we were watching Christmas movies and laughing over the fact that we have very similar tastes in Christmas movies which is cornerstone of our marriage ( okay maybe not …. but I personally could not be with someone who did not like Home Alone πŸ˜‰ )

He told me about a Christmas Drink his family made since his childhood and you will NOT believe what is in it!!!

Yep it is Dr.Pepper and a lemon

So this might not be the most technical recipe I have ever post but still I wanted to share it with you πŸ™‚

I was also excited to make this drink for my parents since they never tried it before and they LOVED IT

Now you can use regular Dr.Pepper or diet it really does not matter — all you have to do is heat the Dr.Pepper over medium heat till it is heated well and the carbonation is gone – around 8 – 10 minutes

Add a lemon wedge and you are done

Seriously one of the easiest recipes I have EVER posted but BOY is it good

Now let’s see some pictures of the final product because you KNOW you want to see them
