My roommates and I have been obsessed with Harry Potter this fall, and nothing pairs as well with the movie as Butterbeer. Since we aren’t going to go all the way down to Universal Studios in Florida for a Butterbeer we decided to make our own.
As someone who’s been to Universal and tried the real deal, I promise you that this Harry Potter Butterbeer copycat cocktail is just like the real thing. It’s silky, smooth sweet, and has the perfect butterscotch flavor. For this recipe, I opted to make a hot version of the Harry Potter Butterbeer copycat cocktail, but you could make this and just skip heating the milk in a saucepan and serve it with ice.
If you don’t have any cream soda on hand, you could do seltzer and also add in caramel extract, but my local grocery store didn’t have any caramel extract and did have cream soda so I felt that the cream soda would be best. The cream soda gives this Harry Potter Butterbeer copycat cocktail the perfect fizziness and makes you feel like you’re right in Hogsmeade at The Three Broomsticks.
This Harry Potter Butterbeer copycat cocktail was so easy to make, and I was shocked by how quickly it came together. It really only took five minutes from start to finish. The hardest part was waiting for it to cool down a little bit before we started drinking.
The butter extract is one ingredient that might be a little bit hard to find so I’ll link that below for you guys.
If you’re looking for a cocktail for your next movie night, this Harry Potter Butterbeer copycat cocktail is an absolute must. It was so fun to watch the movie with the drink in hand, it made us feel like we were right there with Harry, Ron, and Hermione.
Not that this is encouraged, but there are also a ton of really fun Harry Potter-inspired drinking games out there, and what better drink to have in hand for these drinking games than butterbeer? The drinking games range from silly little things like taking a sip of your drink whenever Ron looks confused and finishing your drink when Harry Potter has a run-in with He Who Must Not Be Named(You Know Who).
This recipe will definitely be a staple for me any time I’m cozying up to watch Harry Potter. Next time you go to put on one of the eight incredible movies I encourage you to do the same. The Harry Potter butterbeer copycat cocktail is an absolute must!
