How To Make (Easy) Butterbeer

With yesterday’s news of J.K. Rowling’s new book, it’s hard for a Harry Potter fan not to celebrate. Even though the book isn’t Harry Potter related, let’s break out the butterbeer to celebrate anyway.

I’ve hunted online for years for a really tasty butterbeer recipe. I’ve tried other people’s recipes before but I’ve never really loved any of them. After messing around, I’ve finally made one that I really like.

Super Easy Butterbeer

Makes 1 serving

1/2 cup of Butterscotch Syrup (This is the one I like but use whatever you have)
8 oz. of Cream Soda

1. Microwave the syrup for 20-30 seconds. Just enough to make it easy to stir.
2. Mix in the soda. Go slow because it will bubble quite a bit.
3. Pour over ice.
4. Pretend you’re at Hogsmeade. [Optional. ;)]

The recipe is really simple so you should have no problem making a bigger batch. Just keep the rough proportions.

  1. Yum! I got to visit the Harry Potter Wizarding World at Universal in Florida over Christmas and it was so amazing. While waiting for my husband to go through the singles line for the ride (I had to watch the bags, after already having my turn), I went and got a butterbeer. It was awesome! I got it frozen and it was like a slushie. Thanks for the recipe — I’ll have to relive the moment and make it sometime. 🙂
