Is anyone else still waiting for their owl? You know, the one with your Hogwarts letter. Mine is running over a decade late, but I’ll totally forgive them in exchange for a wand. Or maybe just a magical goblet that is charmed to be a never ending glass of butterbeer.
Is anyone else freaking beyond excited for the Wizarding World of Harry Potter expansion? I’ve gone to the park at least once a year for the last few years, and I’m wholly obsessed with their butterbeer. Since they haven’t announced an opening date for the new park yet, I’m just over here fan-girling and drinking my homemade butterbeer. I decided to make it a little more enchanting by making it alcoholic. I’ve had this both as a shot and as a cocktail, and it’s absolutely delicious either way! It tastes pretty exactly like the stuff at the park, and I have to admit how ridiculously proud of myself I was when I first tasted this.
Before you complain — I knooowwwww that at the park, the foam on top is one of the best parts. I figured I’m already indulging in alcohol and a sugary drink (and maybe I make this more often than I really should?), so I didn’t want to put the foam on top, especially because the best way to make it isn’t the healthiest mix. If you absolutely truly want the foam, microwave a little Cool Whip and add a few drops of butterscotch liqueur or coffee syrup.
Cream soda comes in clear and caramel colored varieties. I used the caramel colored for the full visual effect as the liqueur and vodka are both clear, but it is not necessary.
If you’re dying for a foam on top, microwave a little Cool Whip and stir in a few drops of butterscotch liqueur or coffee flavoring/syrup
