The thought of Harry Potter excites me. Like little kid excitement. And I’m talking about the movie itself. Although, post-Voldemort-battle Daniel Radcliffe excites me a little, too, all rugged and heroic. Either way, Harry Potter rocks. And similar to a Spongebob Squarepants Krabby Patty, I’ve always been dying to try the infamous Harry Potter butterbeer. I haven’t been to London to try it, or Universal Studios, or Hogwarts. So when life doesn’t give you butterbeer, you make your own.
I’ve seen a lot of imitation recipes, some easy and some very, very complicated. But each recipe I scoped out was missing one essential ingredient: booze. If I do recall, Hermione was definitely a little buzzed after her butterbeer consumption at the Three Broomsticks. Regardless, special drinks aren’t as special without the special ingredient. As a result, I am showing you how to make butterbeer, tipsy style.
Let’s get stupefied.
From what I’ve researched, butterbeer has a butterscotch-like flavor to it (hmm…butterscotch schnapps, anyone?). And the butterbeer mustaches made me think of milkshakes, so this is going to be a frozen, drunken, yummy delicious version of butterbeer. Hopefully by the end of it, you’ll be obliviated ( 😉 ) enough to start speaking like the Brits (that may or may not be what I do when I drink…just don’t tell anyone about that).
Your Ingredient List:
- Butterscotch schnapps…don’t be afraid to throw in some Bailey’s if you’re feelin’ spicy
- Vanilla ice cream (I like Edy’s)
- Cream soda (chilled)
- Whipped cream
- A dash of salt
- Brown sugar
- Your favorite house cup-colored straws (Gryffindor Rules)
Here is the full recipe:
Putting this together is incredibly easy. You literally just take all of the ingredients, throw them in the blender, and then wave your wand.
But you do press the blend button, and that’s really all there is to it.
This recipe makes about 3-4 large servings. I like to put them into chilled glasses that have handles, like the mason jar glasses that you’ll see I used.
You can buy those HERE ↓.
Then you top it with whipped cream, and gently stir the whipped cream so that it has a foamy look at the top. Throw in the straw, take a big sip, and you’re golden.
If this is anything close to butterbeer, you will definitely find me at the Three Broomsticks. And hopefully I’ll be there with a post-TKO Daniel Radcliffe.
I hope you guys enjoyed these, and please let me know what you thought/what else I can make for you! Thank you so much for stopping by.
Until next time, mischief managed.
