“Harry drank deeply. It was the most delicious thing he’d ever tasted and seemed to heat every bit of him from the inside…”
Whether we’re pretending to study in The Three Broomsticks, taking a break from shopping in Diagon Alley or on the run in Godric’s Hollow, Butterbeer is our favourite wizarding beverage.
Making your own Butterbeer, just like they serve in the Harry Potter Universe (and The Wizarding World of Harry Potter at Universal Studios), couldn’t be easier:
400ml brown creamy soda, chilled
1tsp butter flavouring (available from baking supply stores and online)
Whites of two eggs
2tsp caster sugar
1/2tsp musk or marshmallow flavour
Combine the egg whites and musk or marshmallow flavour with the caster sugar, and beat until stiff peaks form.
In a beer stein, combine the chilled creamy soda with the butter flavour. Spoon the beaten egg white mix on top to form the ‘head’.
Adults: try adding a dash of spiced rum for extra grown-up wizarding magic.
