Default Best Butterbeer Recipe?

I need a butterbeer recipe for a party, I would prefer it be non-dairy if possible. But a recipe with dairy is ok too. Anyone ever tried to make one with succeess?

Or any good links?

yeah that one looks fairly easy. My big thing is I am not going to have the time to blend individual glasses for everyone KWIM - so the easier the better.

I have one...gotta find it...
I made it for a special Harry Potter themed food day we had, I liked it quite a bit It's time consuming and oh.so.sugarful though!!

---------- Post added at 09:08 PM ---------- Previous post was at 08:59 PM ----------

I say time-consuming but it' really just takes time, not all of it coming from you. It says it takes 1hr, only 10 minutes active though.

So here goes....
1C brown sugar (light or dark)
2TBSP water
6TBSP butter
1/2 TSP each: salt, cider vinegar, rum extract (I had no rum extract so I used vanilla extract that I had made with rum)
3/4C heavy cream, divided
4 12oz bottles of cream soda

A candy thermometer and electric mixer is good to have too

In saucepan over medium, combine brown sugar and water. Bring to gentle boil and cook, stirring often, until the misture reads 240F
Stir in butter, salt, vinegar, and 1/4C heavy cream. Set aside to cool to room temp.
Once it has cooled, stir in the extract
In a medium bowl combine 2TBSP of the sugar misture and remaining 1/2C cream. Beat until thickened but not completely whipped.

Serve:divide sugar between 4 tall glasses, add 1/4C cream soda. Stir to combine. Fill with cream soda, then top with whipping topping over each.


I doubled the batch and it made wayyy more than 8! I had leftovers for a few days

Nahh...not much longer than that, except for the cooling. (You could divvy up the mix just after finishing and then let it cool in its individual glasses to speed it up).
You can make the mixture a day (or a few) in advance. Store it in the fridge and just warm it slightly before divvying up

Default Re: Best Butterbeer Recipe?

what I'd read is, no, it was made up for HP. I don't know when recipes started coming out (I didn't have HP fans till more recently) but a lot of the ones I found were trying to mimic the one found at Universal but because of how secretive they've kept the recipe, none will be an exact match, some are just closer than others
