Butterbeer Recipe

I’m a Potterhead.  Like…a big one. I have played around with several recipes for butterbeer and ended up just mashing some together to create this one.

In case you aren’t familiar with it, it’s a drink in the Harry Potter universe and can be alcoholic or not. I have always chosen the latter version, but there are some interesting recipes for an alcoholic version.

 

I could go on for hours so I’m just gonna scoot along….

Not my best photo, but this was tonight’s that prompted the post.

Butterbeer Recipe

 

  • Cream soda
  • Heavy whipping cream
  • Butterscotch syrup
  • Optional: caramel syrup and redi whip

 

  1. Pour the desired amount of soda into your glass. I usually do a little over half full. Add butterscotch syrup to taste. (About 2 tsp is my favorite)
  2. In a separate bowl or cup, pour ¼ cup heavy cream PER GLASS. So if you have four people drinking with you, make a full cup.
  3. Add butterscotch syrup to taste. 1 TBSP is usually what I use so it’s strong.
  4. Beat until it’s slightly firm. You don’t want it soupy, or super stiff. Usually takes a few minutes.
  5. Pour into your soda. Sometimes it mixes, sometimes it doesn’t until I add the straw. Tasty regardless!
  6. If desired, add rediwhip and drizzle caramel over top for decoration.

Enjoy!

The Gryffindor scarf I made for my friend.  I also did a Slytherin one and two Ravenclaw scarves for other friends. (One was movie house colors and one was book colors)
