Homemade Butterbeer

Butterbeer from Universal Orlando Island of Adventure "The Wizarding World of Harry Potter"
Since we enjoyed visiting Hogsmeade in The Wizarding World of Harry Potter so much, the boys and I decided to try own own butterbeer recipe.  There are dozens of recipe options online but we chose one of the simplest.  We made a few minor modifications ... so here is our version of Recipe #3 from Harry Potter: Top 10 Butterbeer Recipes!


12 oz. cream soda
1/4 cup butterscotch syrup
1/2 tablespoon butter


Measure butterscotch and butter into a microwaveable bowl.
Microwave on high for 60-90 seconds or until syrup is bubbly and butter is completely melted.
Stir and cool for 30 seconds.
Slowly mix in club soda. Mixture will fizz quite a bit.

Refrigerate for 30 minutes.

This is a sugary-sweet drink to be enjoyed in moderation.  Joshua only drank one mug before his sugar meter topped out.  Trey had two full mugs and would have been happy to go for a third, but was curtailed by his parents.  =)

The boys were happy to have kept their official butterbeer mugs from Universal and are certain it makes the drink taste more authentic.  It was a fun little experiment and, according to our sons, butterbeer goes great with pizza.
