Wizarding World Hot Butterbeer

The Wizarding World Hot Butterbeer recipe below helps satisfy my craving for this delicious drink between visits to the park. When we visited Universal Studios Hollywood, Hot Butterbeer wasn’t available as the weather was just too hot. We are hoping to be able to go back to the park to see the Holiday decorations and events, and we will definitely try it then.

In the mean time, I’ve come up with a version that I absolutely love to hold me over until our visit. This is deliciously creamy, sinfully buttery and just down right comforting to drink. It is a wonderful option to hot chocolate. I made this version not too sweet as I didn’t want to feel like I was drinking butterscotch syrup. I took inspiration from milk steamers and created this butterscotch milk steamer. You can also make this an alcoholic beverage by adding either rum or butterscotch schnapps. Enjoy this version; it will make you think happy thoughts of your favorite Harry Potter memory.

I received my Breville Milk Frother last Christmas and I love it. Its great to use it to froth milk for Chai tea or to add to hot chocolate. The size is nice as I only make one or maybe two drinks in a single sitting. I find it very easy to clean and have ready for the next use. It is perfect for this recipe as it is quick and easy, just heat the milk, pour over the Butterbeer mixture, and then the drink is ready to enjoy.

Butterscotch Milk Steamer. Inspired by Universal Studios Wizarding World of Harry Potter. A delicious alternative to hot chocolate, not too sweet but creamy and sinful to drink.


Butterbeer mix

  • 1 cup butter
  • 1 cup brown sugar, packed
  • 1 cup whipping cream
  • 2 cup powdered sugar
  • 1/8 tsp ground cloves
  • 1/8 tsp group cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp ground nutmeg

Hot Butterbeer serving

Butterbeer mix

  2. Beat in whipping cream and powdered sugar on low speed until smooth.
  3. Mix in cloves, cinnamon and nutmeg.

Hot Butterbeer serving

  1. For each serving, add 2 tbsp. Butterbeer mix into mug.
  2. Using milk frother, steam 1/2 cup milk (I used the hot chocolate setting and fill line for hot chocolate).
  3. Add half the milk to the mug and stir until the Butterbeer mix is completely melted and combined. Add the remaining steamed/frothed milk on top and stir to combine.

You can make the alcoholic by adding either 1 shot of rum or 1 shot of Butterscotch schnapps to the mug at the time you are mixing the hot steamed milk with the mixture to combine.

    This recipe is delicious!! I wanted a hot butterbeer recipe with no soda and this was perfect. I made it with double the spices for extra spice. Thanks for sharing!

    What a great recipe! I had been searching the internet for a good butterbeer recipe with no soda and this exceeded my expectations. I used double the spice, and recommend using half the sugar since it’s very sweet. We ended up frothing another 1/2 cup of milk to dilute it a little, but next time we will definitely reduce the sugar.
    Was a little hesitant at first because I don’t have a milk frother. Instead, I boiled milk and used my electric mixer to froth it. Worked great!
