Recently, I threw a Harry Potter themed graduation party for my daughter and of course we had to have Easy Harry Potter Butterbeer on the menu! Searching recipes online I was soon faced with these dilemmas: complicated recipes with too many ingredients including hard to find extracts and costly fixings!
So, in true Thrifty Little Mom fashion I came up with my own simple recipe with easy to find and low cost ingredients. (Plus Kim is a HUGE fan of this particular recipe and begged me to share it).
Butterbeer Recipe Ingredients:
- Chilled 2L Cream Soda
- Vanilla Ice Cream
- Whipped Cream Topping
- Butterscotch Syrup
To make the punch simply add scoops of your favorite vanilla ice cream into a punch bowl and slowly pour in the chilled cream soda. The final touches are added by ladling the punch into a mug and topping with whipped cream & butterscotch syrup.
The nice thing about this super simple recipe is that you can also make these single serve. So rather than waiting for a party to come around you could simply keep all these ingredients in your fridge or freezer and make up one glass (or two) at a time whenever you feel like it.
What a great way to beat the summer heat: read the books or watch the movies with your house elves and serve them this refreshing treat!
If you want to get really geek out over this recipe grab yourself a pack of these fun Wizarding World of Harry Potter House Tumbler Cup Set 4 Cups by Universal Studios from Amazon to make them in!
