Better Butter Beer

Recipe by  

"We developed this version of Harry Potter's butter beer after trying several online recipes that were sickly sweet. It is basically an old fashioned ice cream soda. Mixture may foam and overflow if you are not careful."

Footnotes

  • Cook's Note:
  • For a creamier textured butter beer, you can stir a small amount of softened ice cream (about 1 to 2 tablespoons) into the butterscotch topping before adding the seltzer. This also results in a foamier head on top. Sweetness may be adjusted to taste by adding more or less butterscotch topping. Sugar-free ingredients can be substituted.

I used a homemade vanilla frozen yogurt instead of vanilla ice cream. My kids thought this was the best drink ever.

I've never had butter beer, so I don't know what it's 'supposed' to taste like, but we thought this was great! I would suggest using cold seltzer water, so the drink is icy cold. I didn't measure anything, so I am sure I used more than 2 tbsps. butterscotch topping, lol. Reminded me of a rootbeer float, except, of course, it was butterscotch...loved it! Thanks for sharing. :)
