I’m a huge Harry Potter fan and always have been, but I’m also a huge fan of this delicious and easy Butterbeer Recipe. It is one of my all-time favorite drinks, and we make it more often than not.

I’m a lover of all things butterscotch, so it was only natural that I had to make this at home, and trust me this drink does not disappoint in the least.

With easily available ingredients, this Butterbeer is great to sip on as a treat, for parties, holidays, and more. There is no reason not to make this recipe, and it’s perfect all year round.

Coming together in 5 minutes, you have yourself a tasty butterscotch drink with the perfect homemade whipped topping that you won’t be able to say no to.

Also, this makes a larger batch, so it’s great when you do plan on having people over or if you have kids that are really into Harry Potter as well.

Some of my other favorite drink recipes that we have on our site include: Lemonade, Strawberry Banana Smoothies and Touchdown Punch.

Ingredients needed to make a Butterbeer Recipe.

HOW TO MAKE A BUTTERBEER RECIPE:

  1. Place the heavy cream, powdered sugar, vanilla extract, and butter extract into a medium-sized bowl. With an electric hand mixer, whip until stiff peaks form.
  2. Add the butterscotch syrup to the bowl and fold it in gently until there are no streaks left. Place the bowl into the fridge until ready to serve.
  3. In a large bowl or pitcher, add about 1 cup of the cream soda, the butterscotch syrup, and butter extract. Whisk until the syrup has dissolved into the soda.
  4. Add the rest of the soda to the bowl/pitcher and stir to combine.
  5. Add butterbeer to glasses. Top with the butterscotch whipped cream and more butterscotch syrup if desired, and serve immediately.

DO I HAVE TO MAKE THE HOMEMADE WHIPPED TOPPING?

I personally think that it really makes the drink what it is as we add flavors to it, but if you do not want to make the topping, then you can use regular cool whip if desired.

HOW MUCH DOES THIS MAKE?

This makes about 2 liters worth of the drink, or 4 large mugs, but it will serve more if you are using smaller glasses. Feel free to double this recipe, just use a larger punch bowl.

WHAT DOES THIS TASTE LIKE?

The main flavor in this Butterbeer Recipe is butterscotch, you will also have a hint of cream soda and some vanilla from the whipped toppings.

It is super refreshing and if you love caramel/butterscotch drinks, then this one is absolutely for you.

HOW TO STORE:

Leftovers of the Butterbeer keep for up to 2 weeks in the fridge. Leftovers of the whipped cream will keep for up to 3 days. You may need to whip the whipped cream a little by hand in case it droops while in the fridge for so long.

Make sure to store them separately in different airtight containers.

TIPS AND TRICKS:

  • Easily double this recipe to make more for more people.
  • The whipped topping really makes this drink, but you can use cool whip.
  • This can be made ahead and stored in the refrigerator separately.
  • This is best served chilled.
