Step By Step  

Don’t Muggle Around with this Bourbon Butterbeer!

As prepared by Half Baked Harvest,

I don’t think I could be much more exited about this drink.

I am kind of a HUGE Harry Potter fan and I’ve always wanted to make Butterbeer. Clearly I am so happy that day has finally come AND that I get to share the recipe with you! It’s truly a good one, and it's spiked with bourbon for a little adult fun. YEAH!

So with Halloween approaching quickly, I thought a Harry Potter inspired drink was surely in order. To me, nothing screams Halloween like Harry Potter. I mean, Harry Potter is all about magic, villains and odd goblin like creatures, so this recipe couldn’t be more perfect for a Halloween Party punch bowl or just a fun and easy drink to make on a Friday night with friends. It’s SO simple and uses no odd ingredients.

 

Here is what you need. Butterscotch sauce, apple cider, bourbon, ginger beer, vanilla extract and butter. See? Simple, right? You’re also going to want some whipped cream for topping and maybe even some fun gold stars to make the drink really magical!

OK, so grab those ingredients.
