Harry Potter Butter beer

Mia Staubli, Writer

We all know about the Harry Potter movies and books. In Hogsmeade, they had many shops, some restaurants, candy stores, and more. Two of the most popular places were The Three Broomsticks and The Hog’s Head. These two places both served butterbeer which is the most popular drink in the Harry Potter books and movies. Butterbeer is a great drink to try and fun to make with friends or family who are fans of Harry Potter. 

 

Ingredients:

  • 1 1/3 cups water
  • 1 cup marshmallow creme
  • 1 envelope Dream Whip Whipped Topping Mix
  • 2 tablespoons powdered sugar
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon plus 1/4 teaspoon butter flavoring
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/4 teaspoon caramel extract or flavoring (Watkins is the best to use)
  • 10 12-ounce cans cold A&W Cream Soda

Instructions:

  • Combine the marshmallow creme with the water in a medium bowl and microwave it on high for 30 seconds. If you don’t want to use the microwave, use warm water from your tap. Stir until the marshmallow creme dissolves. Then cool and leave uncovered in the refrigerator for 1 hour, or until cold.
  • Add the Dream Whip to the bowl and mix with an immersion hand blender for about 30 seconds. If you don’t have a hand blender you can use an electric mixer, but only mix for about 15 seconds.
  • Add the powdered sugar, and salt and mix for another 30 seconds.
  • Add the butter, vanilla, and caramel flavorings and mix until combined. Store covered bowl in your refrigerator until needed.
  • When you are ready to serve the drinks, pour a can of cream soda into a 12-ounce glass or a mug. Be sure to leave about 1/2-inch of room at the top.
  • Use the blender to mix the foam for 5 seconds, or until some large bubbles start to form in the topping. Spoon 3 to 4 tablespoons of topping onto each drink and serve.

Butterbeer is popular in many places and sold in many places including Univeral Studios. Even though there is not an exact recipe that anyone and/or any place uses specifically there are still some recipes that are more popular than others and that are more preferably used. This butterbeer recipe is something great to try and a good experiment because people seem to have mixed feelings about it and are not sure what to think about it.
