I’m so excited to share one of my favorite things on the planet today. It’s a copycat recipe from a drink shop in Utah, called Swig. They serve cold sodas infused with other flavors (like Sonic, but WAY better) and they also serve sugar cookies, all in a drive-thru. The experience is magical.
Dirty Dr. Pepper
Since I don’t live near a Swig or any of the copycat drink shops that have popped up since it became popular, I decided to figure out how to make Dirty Dr. Pepper at home. Dirty Dr. Pepper is a mixed drink made by mixing Dr. Pepper with fresh lime and coconut syrup. I found the coconut syrup I needed on Amazon and have been hooked ever since!
What’s a Dirty Soda?
The drink shop calls any soda with the added flavors of coconut and lime a “Dirty” soda. These flavors can be used with Diet Coke too for a Dirty Diet Coke, if that’s your preferred drink. The combo is great with pretty much any soda! They have clever names for all of their drinks.
Dirty Dr. Pepper Ingredients:
- 1 Lime
- Torani Sugar Free Coconut Syrup
- Dr. Pepper or Diet Dr. Pepper
How to Make Dirty Dr. Pepper
It’s simple: Fill your cup 1/4 full with ice and add one slice of lime.
Pour Dr. Pepper in and add about 1 teaspoon of coconut syrup for every 1 cup of Dr. Pepper.
Drink up and enjoy!
Note: Pebble Ice is preferred, but use what you’ve got! Sometimes I go to Sonic and buy a bag of their pebble ice before we have people over. Someday, I plan to buy this amazing nugget ice maker!

A lot of the time, I make this in a tumbler with a lid so I can take it with me! If I’m making it for friends or for dinner, I use these highball glasses. I think they’re so pretty! Here are some links to the things I mentioned:
This beautiful drink goes perfectly with sugar cookies, like these Sugar Cookie Bars! If you love Dr. Pepper, you also HAVE to try this Raspberry Dream – another Swig copycat made with coconut cream and Raspberry pureé.
