In the world of Harry Potter, butterbeer is served in cold bottles or hot in foaming tankards. The book describes it to taste a bit like butterscotch, which may explain why the kids at Hogwarts love it.
Here at The Start, we’ve come up with a butterbeer recipe that’s easy to recreate at home. With a bit of root beer and caramel syrup, our butterbeer tastes like magic on the tongue.
It’s a great holiday drink or Halloween beverage for kids after a long day of trick or treating. Definitely a liquid treat for wizards and wizardwannabes all over. And they don’t even have to be sorted into Gryffindor or Slytherin to enjoy it.
1 Can of Rootbeer (can also be substituted with soda water and vanilla extract)
1 Tbsp. Caramel Syrup
Ice (a handful or two)
- Pour your preferred can of rootbeer (The Start likes A&W) and the caramel syrup into a blender. Add the ice and pulse until smooth.
- Pour mix into mug and top with whipped cream.
- Drizzle caramel syrup on top of whipped cream for a sweet accent. Enjoy!
