Are you a Harry Potter fan? Rachel is, but I’ll admit, I wasn’t always. The first few movies were not very interesting to me. They seemed like Scooby Doo set to a Wizards and Magic theme. And I don’t have anything against wizards or magic. I’m a huge Lord of the Rings fan. (Side note: Gandalf would win in a fight against Dumbledore, any day). But as the Harry Potter series progressed it became darker and more serious. I found myself really enjoying the later movies to the point that I had to read the books. So we are really excited to check out the final Harry Potter film, The Deathly Hallows Part 2. We already have our sitter on stand by for Baby Boy.
To celebrate the final film I thought it would be fun to try Harry Potter Butter Beer; the ubiquitous drink of the series. There are many variations out there but I wanted something simple to make and perfect for the summer heat. This recipe is it, offering a somewhat slushy, butterscotchy drink that is best enjoyed sitting outside by a pool or in a lounge chair reading a book. And if you aren’t in the mood for alcohol, or want to serve this to kids, replace the schnapps with butterscotch syrup.
So…are you going to see the final Harry Potter film?
Recipe: Harry Potter Butter Beer
Butter Beer Ingredients
- 1 1/2 cups cream soda
- 6 tablespoons butterscotch schnapps (or butterscotch syrup for non alcoholic)
- 2 cups ice
- Combine cream soda, schnapps and ice in a blender. Blend until slushy. Pour into a glass or mug.
- In a small bowl, combine heavy cream and schnapps. Using an electric mixer, whisk together until almost whipped. The cream mixture should be slightly loose, not as firm as whipped cream.
- Top the butterbeer with the foamy topping and serve immediately.
Number of servings (yield): 2
