Harry Potter's Hot & Cold Butterbeer Recipes


   Now I know these recipes are definitely not Disney-themed but I thought I'd share them with you anyway. My youngest son is a huge Harry Potter fan and had been asking me to make some Butterbeer and not really knowing what it was made from I decided to search the internet for a recipe. I found tons of recipes and variations of the drink! Some required a long list of ingredients (a few were hard to find) and/or long preparation times. I wanted a simple recipe with items that I could easily find at my local Walmart or grocery store so I came up with my own. In fact, it turned into 2 different recipes, one for the buttery hot beverage (similar to what is shown in the films) and another for the fizzy cold (similar to what is served at Universal Studios' Wizarding World of Harry Potter).

  So although these are not Disney-related, I hope you will make them for your family and enjoy them just the same because they are absolutely delicious! Or as Harry would say "Brilliant!"


FROTH (FOAM)
*makes enough for 4 small mugs

(This froth recipe is the same for both the hot and cold butterbeer.)


Ingredients:

1/2 cup heavy whipping cream
1/4 cup powdered sugar
1 teaspoon Butterscotch-flavored Jell-O Instant Pudding Mix

Directions:

   With an electric mixer (or whisk), mix all the ingredients until soft peaks form and it resembles whipped cream. Set aside.



HOT BUTTERBEER
*makes about 6 cups


Ingredients:

6 cups whole milk
6 tablespoons butterscotch-flavored sundae syrup
10-12 drops yellow food coloring
1 (4-serving size) Butterscotch-flavored Jell-O Instant Pudding Mix (minus the 1 tsp. used in Froth recipe)
prepared Froth (recipe above)

Directions:

   Pour 6 cups of milk into medium-sized saucepan. Turn heat to medium-high. Add in butterscotch syrup and food coloring. Now mix in the butterscotch pudding mix. Stir well until lumps are gone. Keep stirring until pudding has dissolved and liquid is hot. We want the temperature of the butterbeer to be hot but not scalding (similar to hot cocoa).

   Once it is hot, ladle it into your serving mugs. Top with a few spoonfuls of the froth (recipe above) and give it a few minutes for the peaks to settle, creating a foamy layer on top. Now take a sip and wipe off your butterbeer mustache. :D






COLD BUTTERBEER


Ingredients:

cream soda (chilled)
1-2 teaspoons butterscotch-flavored sundae syrup (per mug)
prepared Froth (recipe above)


Directions:

   Pour the chilled cream soda into your glass or mug, leaving about 1-inch at the top for the froth. Add in 1-2 teaspoonfuls (depending on your flavor preference) of the butterscotch syrup and stir well to incorporate. Top it off with the prepared froth and give it a few minutes to settle. 


Now put on your favorite Harry Potter movie and enjoy!!

  5. I just used 2% lactose free milk and added a bit of vanilla, brown sugar, and a dash of pumpkin spice in addition to the other ingredients. It turned out really good! Will definitely be making this for Halloween.
