Of all the glorious food and drink that the characters in the Harry Potter series consume, I will admit that the one that has intrigued me the most over the years is butterbeer. First of all, it kind of sounds…gross. Just a bit nasty. Two years ago, I took my little sister to a Potter-themed party at the children’s museum in town where our other sister worked. It was an awesome shindig, by the way. Little sis and I were Luna Lovegood and Hermione Granger, respectively. (Little sis even made her own radish earrings.) Other sis was a dragon; she took a dragon costume that little sis had worn when she was tiny and it actually worked really well, haha. Dragon-head-hat and a cape with wings. Yes.
Anyway, there were snacks at this shindig, obviously. There was something labeled as butterbeer, which I think was just cream soda with butterscotch flavoring in it. It wasn’t bad, actually. Since then, however, I have been searching for the perfect butterbeer recipe (
read: the most time consuming and difficult). I think I may have found one. Now, I haven’t tried this out yet, but it sounds delightfully scrumptious so I hope to make it soon! I found this recipe on harrypotterrecipes.net which stated that the recipe had come from Fox News. 🙂
