Wizarding World of Harry Potter Butterbeer Recipe

After our visit to the Wizarding World of Harry Potter at Universal Orlando I knew I wanted to brew Butterbeer at home. After searching my harry potter cookbook I realized its not in there! How can you have a harry potter cookbook with out butterbeer :(   So I turned to my good friend, Google.  I found a recipe tested it out and it tastes just like the butterbeer that is served in the park. So this May for Mothers Day we had a harry potter party with meals and drinks from the cookbook, be sure to check out my other harry potter recipes! Enjoy!

1 cup light or dark brown sugar
2 tablespoons water
6 tablespoons butter
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon cider vinegar
3/4 cup heavy cream, divided
1/2 teaspoon rum extract
4 12 ounce cream sodas


Prep Time: 1 hr
Total Time: 1 1/4 hr

  1. In a small saucepan over medium, combine the brown sugar and water. Bring to a gentle boil and cook, stirring often, until the mixture reads 240 F on a candy thermometer.
  2. Stir in the butter, salt, vinegar and 1/4 heavy cream. Set aside to cool to room temperature.
  3. Once the mixture has cooled, stir in the rum extract.
  4. In a medium bowl, combine 2 tablespoons of the brown sugar mixture and the remaining 1/2 cup of heavy cream. Use an electric mixer to beat until just thickened, but not completely whipped, about 2 to 3 minutes.
  5. To serve, divide the brown sugar mixture between 4 tall glasses (about 1/4 cup for each glass). Add 1/4 cup of cream soda to each glass, then stir to combine. Fill each glass nearly to the top with additional cream soda, then spoon the whipped topping over each.
