Harry Potter's Butterbeer

Put the mug in "muggle"! Yes, you can make this wildly popular drink at home. Butterbeer is a duh simple choice for book/movie clubs and Halloween!

Ingredients

1
cup light or dark brown sugar
2
tablespoons water
6
tablespoons butter
1/2
teaspoon salt
1/2
teaspoon cider vinegar
1/2
teaspoon cider vinegar
3/4
cup heavy cream, divided
1/2
teaspoon rum extract
4
(12 ounce) bottles cream soda

Directions

  • 1 In a small saucepan over medium, combine the brown sugar and water. Bring to a gentle boil and cook, stirring often, until the mixture reads 240ºF on a candy thermometer.
  • 2 Stir in the butter, salt, vinegar and 1/4 of the heavy cream. Set aside to cool to room temperature.
  • 3 Once the mixture has cooled, stir in the rum extract.
  • 4 In a medium bowl, combine 2 tablespoons of the brown sugar mixture and the remaining 1/2 cup of heavy cream. Use an electric mixer to beat until just thickened, but not completely whipped, about 2 to 3 minutes.
  • 5 To serve, divide the brown sugar mixture between 4 tall glasses (about 1/4 cup for each glass). Add 1/4 cup of cream soda to each glass, then stir to combine. Fill each glass nearly to the top with additional cream soda, then spoon the whipped topping over each.

As prepared by tbspErin,

Instead of reaching for the usual beer brands – why don’t you whip out the Butterbeer? Whaaaa?


If you're a fan, you already know about Butterbeer. What's Butterbeer? Well, if you're asking that question, you're probably not president of the Harry Potter fan club. Even so, you should try this drink. It's spectacular, according to those who have tried it (or those who have read about it). And they say it's easy enough for a Squib to make. (Don't ask...)

By most accounts, it has a salty, butterscotchy flavor with a frothy top that makes it look rather beer-like, but taste more like a chilled latte. It's served up in two varieties -- regular or frozen. And seriously, check out the ingredients list: dark brown sugar, butter, heavy cream, cream soda and rum extract...what's not to like?


Even if you're not a HP fan (and I admit, I'm not), this would be ridiculous fun at a dinner party or after playing...broomball (sorry).

Bottoms up, muggles!
