What Ingredients Will You Need To Make Harry Potter Butterbeer?

- Heavy Cream- The heavy cream is actually optional but if you ask me, don’t skip it. In fact, add it generously.
Steps To Make Harry Potter Butterbeer
1. Wizardry and Whisk-Craft
You don’t have to go to Hogsmeade to get some butterbeer now. I’ll tell you how to make it right here. Take the measuring cup and pour the butterscotch syrup into it. This is what will make the butterbeer sweet. After that, add the softened butter to it. This makes the drink smooth.
Using a whisk, combine the two well until they are uniform. Then, pour the cream soda into it and stir. If you want the butterbeer to make you a little tipsy, you can use butterscotch schnapps or vanilla vodka to make it. Now, all you need to do is make the topping.
2. At The Stiff Peaks
For the topping, take a large mixing bowl and add the heavy cream to it. Whisk the cream until it forms soft peaks. If you want it to be sweeter, you can add a tablespoon of sugar to it.
3. Beer Me!
Now, pour the butterbeer into the glass mugs to give it the full Harry Potter effect. Using a spoon, add a dollop of whipped cream on top of both glasses. Your delicious butterbeer is ready! Let’s share our notes from Potion classes over a drink, shall we?
