Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them just came out this past weekend and in honor of new films set in the Wizarding World, I’ve decided to DIY a famous and popular wizarding drink: butterbeer!
You will need:
1 cup brown sugar
2 tbsp water
6 tbsp butter
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon cider vinegar
1/4 cup heavy whipping cream
Step 1: Combine brown sugar and water in a saucepan. Stir until it boils on medium.
Step 2: Add butter, vinegar, salt, and 1/4 cup of heavy cream. Once stirred in, let it cool.
Step 3: Pour a small layer of base into the bottom of each cup.
2 tbsp base (from above)
6 tbsp confectioners sugar/ powdered sugar
1/2 cup heavy whipping cream
Step 1: Mix base, powdered sugar, and heavy whipping cream in a separate bowl.
Step 2: Whisk/ mix until thickened, but not whipped.
Butterscotch topping syrup
Step 1: Freeze cream soda to a mostly solid state.
Step 2: Put frozen cream soda in a blender and mix in butterscotch topping to a desired sweetness.
Step 3: Blend until slushy.
To serve: Add base to the bottom of a cup, pour 1/4 cup with regular cream soda, put frozen butterbeer over, then add froth.
2 cups milk
(maybe add some base into it and some cream soda)
6 tbsp butterscotch topping/syrup
4 tbsp brown sugar
Step 1: On medium heat, add milk, butterscotch topping, and brown sugar together.
Step 2: Stir and warm to desired heat.
To serve: (Add a layer of base at the bottom), add a layer of cream soda, Pour hot butterbeer in a mug, then add froth.
Whether you’re a Muggle/No-Maj, wizard, witch, goblin, dragon, house elf, ghost, or a fantastic beast, you can have some butterbeer this holiday season! Enjoy!
