Wizarding World Hot Butterbeer

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.
