How To: Harry Potter's "Butterbeer"

The Harry Potter craze is REAL, guys. Never in my life have I heard a franchise cause such an uproar of delight from ages ranging from a wee little tyke to a grown elderly adult. Raking in $43.5 million before it's midnight premiere and breaking the midnight box office record while doing so, damaging Twilight $30 million lead, "Harry Potter & The Deathly Hallows: Part 2," opened with a BANG. Twitter dashboards were raving, Facebook statuses were coming up like crazy, and Tumblr HP spam was off the chain.


So to celebrate this amazing phenomena that has come to a close (holds back tears, claims there's a twig in my eye), I have to give you guys something to keep with you. And if you haven't seen the movie, you can make this and bring it along with you. As if you're at the Three Broomsticks.

Butterbeer, my friends. Below is the recipe, and below is a drink you must try and pass down to your kids and their kids and so on, so forth, along with the books, the games, the merchandise and the movies that are Harry Potter. Many have tried this recipe and many have rejoiced over its absolute deliciousness. And it would only be right for true Harry Potter fans, newbies or the all timers, to let your taste-buds go bonkers. I mean . . . Guys. IT'S BUTTERBEER.

Anyway, enjoy! And if you happen to do it, let me know how it tastes in the comments below. I'm buying the ingredients tonight!

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


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!
