What is butter?

In the Harry Potter books, Butterbeer is a delicious drink that children enjoy when visiting Hogsmeade. In the books, Butterbeer is described as having a very slight alcohol content. Of course, in the parks and in almost all homemade recipes, they are made alcohol-free.

Butterbeer was also a real drink in England called “Buttered Beer” in the 16th century. It was made from beer, sugar, eggs, nutmeg, and cloves.

For the purposes of this recipe, we’re making a version of butter beer that’s very close to what’s served in the parks.

Ingredients in buttercream

  • Cream soda – Good old cream soda is the base of this fizzy drink.
  • Caramel syrup – Add a little caramel flavor (optional if you want to taste the butter flavor more).
  • Butter extract – This gives your recipe a nice buttery flavour.
  • Cao -You can also use heavy whipping cream if you have it.

How to make butter beer (without additives)

Start by preparing the base of your drink (without the topping). Combine cream of soda with butter extract and caramel syrup.

For the caramel syrup, I used clear syrup instead of sauce. But if you want to shorten your grocery list, you can use caramel sauce for both.

Directions for Butterbeer Foam Topping

In my opinion, the most delicious and important part of this recipe is the topping! In a separate cup, combine half-and-half and caramel sauce.

Next, use a Milk foam Foam the cream until the consistency is somewhere between cream and whipped cream. As it becomes thicker and more foamy, you’ll know it’s the perfect consistency for your drink.

Next, pour the sauce over your chilled drink. It is best served in Beer mug. these Plastic beer cups A little smaller and great for kids.

Tips for making

  • If you’re in a hurry, you can use whipped cream with a little caramel syrup on top. This is the best way to cut down on prep time (although the homemade toppings are worth the effort).
  • This is not a good recipe to make ahead of time since it needs to be assembled right before serving, and setting the base ahead may result in a flat soda. We recommend the service immediately. Fortunately, it’s a very quick and easy recipe to prepare for a group.
  • If you’re having a Harry Potter movie night, try serving butterbeer with popcorn Harry Potter candy from the movies. Don’t forget yours Hogwarts house pajamas.
  • If you’re having an adult party and want to add alcohol, I suggest adding vanilla vodka, spiced rum, or candy liqueur to this recipe (total of 2-3 ounces per drink).
