HowTo: Make Your Own Harry Potter Butterbeer
If you waited hours in line for the 12:01 premiere showing of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows this past Thursday evening, then you must be an avid Harry Potter fan. What better way to celebrate the recent release than a sampling of the legendary Butterbeer?
(For less avid fans, Butterbeer is an imaginary, alcohol-free wizarding beverage that tastes "a little bit like less-sickly butterscotch.")
Luckily, Darla over at Bakingdom went right to the source. Darla made a trip to the Wizarding World of Harry Potter, sampled the J.K. Rowling approved Butterbeer, and came up with this simple imitation you can make at home.
- 6 12-ounce bottles cream soda
