Butterbeer Recipe

This is a tasty and easy recipe to make ice cold butterbeer at home and it’s something that fans of all ages can enjoy. It may not be as fun as going to the Three Broomsticks and getting a frosty mug there, but this drink is a nice, refreshing version of everyone’s favorite Harry Potter treat.  For the full effect, make this in a tall, thick mug and maybe drink it out on the Quidditch pitch!


 You will need:

  • 1 cup of Club Soda or Sparkling Water
  • 1 cup of half and half or cream (sweet cream can also be used)
  • 2 tbsp of Almond flavored soda syrup
  • 1/2 cup of ice
  • Butterscotch ice cream topping
  • Whipped Cream topping


Fill your mug with the ice, then pour in the half-and-half and syrup.  Slowly add the Club soda until the glass is nearly full (or as full as you want it).  Finally, top with a generous amount of whipped cream and drizzle with the Butterscotch topping.  Alternatively, you can add butterscotch topping to the syrup and half-and-half for a richer, sweeter butterbeer.  Bonus house points: enjoy this butterbeer with fun straws in your house colours!
