Butterbeer Recipe— You Don’t HAVE to go to Hogsmeade to Enjoy It

Considering the first part of the last Harry Potter movie (The Deathly Hallows Pt 1) opens for a midnight showing tonight, I thought I’d devote today to everything Harry Potter!

To begin, here’s a perfect recipe for Harry Potter parties, especially since temperatures keep dropping.  Of course, I’m talking about Butterbeer!

Actually, I have two recipes. If you search online, there are hundreds of varying recipes, so I’m showing you one that is very easy to make, and one that is a little more complicated, but both look good!

 

Rosmerta's Recipes - Butterbeer by Melissa

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup (8 oz) club soda or cream soda
  • ½ cup (4 oz) butterscotch syrup (ice cream topping)
  • ½ tablespoon butter


Directions:
Step 1: Measure butterscotch and butter into a 2 cup (16 oz) glass. Microwave on high for 1 to 1½ minutes, or until syrup is bubbly and butter is completely incorporated.
Step 2: Stir and cool for 30 seconds, then slowly mix in club soda. Mixture will fizz quite a bit.
Step 3: Serve in two coffee mugs or small glasses; a perfectly warm Hogwarts treat for two!

Now for the harder recipe…

How to Make Butterbeer - Perfected Recipe

Ingredients:

  • 10 OZ of Cream Soda (1 & 1/4 cups)
  • 1 Tbsp of Salted REAL Butter
  • 1/2 Cup Butterscotch chips
  • 1/4 Cup liquid Creamer

Directions:

  1. Put the Butterscotch Chips and Butter in a microwave safe bowl. Heat for 30 seconds. Stir and Heat for another 30 seconds.
    The Chips and butter should be a thick stir-able paste.

  2. Now add your Creamer to the bowl. I use the Original Coffee Mate Liquid Creamer.
    Microwave in 30 Second increments again. Stirring each time.
    I have found it usually takes about 4 times (2 minutes) to get the right consistency.
    Set your mixture aside.

  3. Heat Cream soda in the microwave for 90 seconds.
    BE VERY CAREFUL!
    Since microwaves vary I must add, my microwave needs about 2 minutes.
    Make sure not to over heat the Cream Soda or all of the fizz will be gone.

  4. Pour Butterscotch mixture into heated Cream Soda.
    Stir & Serve!
