Butterbeer Recipe

Are you a Harry Potter fan? Who isn’t, right??? Of course everyone’s mouth waters at the mention of all of the decadent foods in the Harry Potter Series, including butterbeer, the famous and well-loved beverage of the wizards and witches. I fortunately stumbled across this recipe on Bakeat350 and it is by Feast of Fiction. There are three types of butterbeer, so check out the video that I attatched if you like! http://youtu.be/WTn5SJLTnek

The butterbeer was very good. I thought that the butterbeer and the whipped cream nicely complemented each other. A nice, refreshing gulp of  chilly “beer” was accented by the pleasantly sweet (but not too sweet) whipped cream and caramel drizzle. It was an excellent introduction to summer! I remember having a similar version of butterbeer at my aunt’s house when I was at a Harry Potter party with my cousins. We wore Harry Potter costumes or waved our wands around as we ran around drinking butterbeer, taking pictures, watching people spray each other with temporary red hair dye, and piling into the car (or rather, the fleet of cars) to go to the movie theater and watch the second part of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. Butterbeer seems to have a fun spell surrounding it… :)

Butterbeer Recipe:

For the Beer:

1 tbsp. butterscotch caramel plus some for garnish

1 cup ice cubes

1 (12 oz.) can cream soda

2 tsp. artificial butter flavoring

For the Whipped Cream:

1 cup heavy whipping cream

6 tbsp. sugar

1 tbsp. vanilla

2 tsp. artificial butter flavoring

Directions:

1. For the Whipped Cream: In a large bowl fitted to an electric mixer, beat all of the ingredients together until the cream is stiff and fluffy. Set aside.

2. For the Beer: In a blender, combine all of the ingredients together and blend until there are no large chunks of ice and the butterbeer is foamy. Pour the butterbeer into some glasses and top the beer with the whipped cream. Drizzle butterscotch caramel over the whipped cream with a fork.

3. Slurp!
