Introduction: How to Make Butterbeer | Harry Potter Recipe

Check out the printable recipe here: http://vegetarianbaker.com/Harry-Potter-Butterbee...

If you are like me, Harry Potter was my childhood. I grew up reading the books and enjoying the movies, but always wanted to try the food from the books. Butterbeer is one of those recipes that just stands out to me. I have been able to visit the World of Harry Potter in Universal Studios, but this isn't a copy cat recipe. This is a Butterbeer recipe on how I expected it to taste from the books. It is a lot like a smoky apple cider. The butterscotch and bourbon bring out some delicious flavors and the ginger just gives it the right amount of kick. If you are under the legal drinking age, or just rather have this non-alcoholic, substitute the bourbon whiskey for a little more apple cider. I hope you enjoy this recipe for Butterbeer.

Tie a bow around the glass stem or handle, toss some white chocolate shavings on the top with some chocolate plain m and ms, you have your Christmas drink. (But not too much of the chocolates, you just want to get an appearance, not alter the basic taste of the drink.) just a thought.

Alcohol evaporates at about 170 degrees F.

So if you want the buzz, don't go higher. If you want the flavor but not the buzz, do go higher. ;)

author

Great tip. :) This recipe is only above 170*F for only a few seconds. :)

When you cook the bourbon whisky the heat will elimenate the alcohole.

author

You don't heat it enough to burn it off. Most of it is still there. You are just warming it up enough to melt and infuse the butterscotch

is the apple cider meant to be hard cider, or regular unfiltered apple juice?

author

That part is open to interpretation. I have tried them all. :)

author

That's open to interpretation. If you are going to put whiskey in it, feel free to use hard cider. I've tried it and it's delicious.

Looks delicious! Of course, heating the bourbon (and hard cider if used) should evaporate the alcohol making this non-alcoholic in the end.
