Butterbeer Recipe

Any true Harry Potter fan will know that Butterbeer is the drink of choice for the student wizards, and it is a delicious and fun drink whether served cold or hot. It’s also the most popular drink at the Wizarding World of Harry Potter within Universal Studios in Florida. After standing in long lines to get a mug full of tasty, cold Butterbeer at the park, we fell so in love with it that we recreated it at home. We also came up with a hot version for the winter months.

Both recipes make a delicious treat for Harry Potter fans young and young-at-heart. For the older wizards in our audience, we offer a tip for making a spirited version that'll really warm you.
