I love hot Dr Pepper! In fact, I prefer Dr Pepper unrefridgerated even in 100 F temps. Steaming hot Dr Pepper is great too!

Sounds awesome, but does warming it ruin the carbonation? I imagine so, but I’m just curious if anyone knows for sure.

When I used to drive a lot, I always had a 2L DP bottle with me. On the rare occasions I didn’t finish the bottle before while driving, it sometimes ended up baking in the sun. This never stopped me from finishing the bottle.

Obviously, this was during summer road trips. It sounds much more appealing when it’s cold out.

Dr. Pepper changed its formula some years ago from a sugar to High Fructose syrup as a sweetener. I just got a hankering for some hot Dr. Pepper and was very disappointed that the flavor was not what I had remembered due to this fact. Dr. Pepper quit recommending serving their product hot because of this very fact. It is however possible to obtain Dr. Pepper which is made with real cane sugar…but it might take you some effort.
