Harry Potter Butterbeer Recipe

Tuesday, August 28, 2012

Ahhh...Butterbeer. One of the most replicated Harry Potter recipes. Well, we try to replicate it. I have found many recipes with all sorts of ingredients. But I want something simple. Now, let me first start by saying that I have not tried the "real" Butterbeer at the Wizarding World of Harry Potter. Second, I have never attempted a non-alcoholic version of Butterbeer (I was led to believe by the films & the books that Butterbeer is in some way...'intoxicating'). Third, I have attempted a few versions & I have finally found the one that, to me, seems like Butterbeer that Harry & his friends enjoy in Hogsmead.

1. Cream Soda
(I prefer A&W but any will work)
2. Butterscotch Schnapps
(I suppose you could use butterscotch syrup for a non-alcoholic version)
3. Vanilla Ice Cream (You may also use a caramel flavor as well)
4. Whipped Cream (Optional)
In an 8oz glass, spoon in 1-2 scoops of ice cream.

Add 1oz of Butterscotch Schnapps to the glass.

Very slowly pour cream soda over ice cream and schnapps.

Gently stir the mixture and top with whipped cream.

There you have it! Easy recipe and delicious everytime!
