Happy Holidays everyone, so this is a long overdue post. I've been meaning to do a post about this for awhile. So as everyone should know butterbeer is a drink that is from the harry potter series. As seen below. 

They typically drank it here at the three broomsticks as seen below (photo by me at the wizarding world of harry potter in Orlando)

Here's what the butterbeer from the Orlando theme park looked like. Now the main difference is in the books/movies the drink is an alcoholic drink. However i guess since the theme park is a family place there is no alcohol. However it is really good. 

It tastes like a butterscotch cream soda with a sweet creamy foam at the top that they add at the end. 

So after returning from the park i decided to create my own butterbeer. Now i don't have an exact recipe but its really simple and really delicious. 

So all you will need is :
Cream soda 
Smucker's butterscotch sauce (ice cream topping)
Heavy whipping cream
Rum (i used Bacardi gold)

Here's what you do:
Pour the cream soda in a glass and add as much rum as you would like. Then add some of the butterscotch sauce, again this is just to taste i would say i added about 5 tablespoons,  you will need quite a bit to get that butterscotch flavor. Stir a little, then all you need is the foam so for this simply begin whipping the cream by hand, drizzle in some of the sauce to this as well. Whip to a soft peak. Pour the foam onto your drink. 

And here you have it! Your own butterbeer to drink with your harry potter marathon!

Hope you all try this out it's really good. Also WARNING definitely not for the calorie conscious!

I hope everyone's  holidays are filled with magic!
