Butterbeer

From the Harry Potter series by J.K. Rowling    


I figure this is probably one that everybody knows and has been curious about, so it makes an appropriate first post. I got this recipe from Sandra Lee of the Food Network whom I normally despise but have to give kudos to for this one. I came across a few different recipes for it but I liked this one best... unfortunately. Perfect for the holidays!


Igredients

1/4 cup unsweetened condensed milk

1/4 cup butterscotch topping

2 tablespoons whipped butter, room temperature

1 1/2 cups vanilla cream soda


Directions
Combine condensed milk, butterscotch topping, and butter in a glass heatproof measuring cup. Heat in microwave for 1 minute. Remove and stir until butter has melted and incorporated into mixture. Meanwhile heat cream soda in another heatproof measuring cup for 1 minute 30 seconds. Divide butterscotch mixture between 2 (10 to 12-ounce) mugs. Fill mugs with heated cream soda and stir thoroughly. Serve garnished with a cinnamon stick or an old-fashioned butterscotch candy stick.

  1. Wow, so that is butterbeer? Sounds really sweet. I think I would die if I drank that!! Sweet memories of Harry Potter though.

  2. I'm not fond of Sandra Lee either but for some strange reason, I often watch her show. Maybe just to see how ridiculous her recipe is. She once showed how to make chili dogs with hot dogs and canned chili. Like you really need a recipe for that!

  4. This is SUCH a great idea for a blog! I'm so excited for it to get cold so I can make me some butterbeer! I live in Texas, so it probably won't get cold... ever... but oh well. From one geek to another, keep up the good work!

    1. Actually, buttered beer is a real drink, as are buttered rum and buttered cider. :D I've only ever made the latter, but holy hell did it taste good. Just make sure you don't overdo the butter and you're good (you'll feel sick if you add too much, ergh...). Not sure if buttered beer is what Rowling was thinking of when she wrote the series, but it wouldn't be horrible to try, though you may need to experiment with what type of beer you use.

  10. Is there anything to replace the butterscotch topping?

  11. Mm, sounds GREAT! =D I can't wait to try it- though do you have to use unsweetened condensed milk? What's the difference, just the strength of the flavor?

  12. I make my own butterscotch instead of using the topping. It isn't that hard. http://simplyrecipes.com/recipes/how_to_make_butterscotch/

  13. My hp fanatic friends made delicious butterbeer- and it was extremely simple. Just get Vanilla Cream soda, shake it 'til it's relatively flat (beer is only slightly carbonated.) Secondly, add Butterscotch Schnapps. It's AWESOME. It's alcoholic, and it tastes very buttery. It's mild enough to be called a beer. TA-DA!

  16. We realize that kids drink butter beer...so it wouldn't be an alcoholic drink...just cuz its say beer...so does that mean you think you'll get drunk off root beer too?

    1. Butter beer is an alcoholic drink involving egg whites, sugar, butter, nutmeg, cloves and ginger. As to whether Root beer is alcoholic or not, well, traditional Root beer is alcoholic, whereas commercial Root beer is not. Due to the interest of the beverage in the Harry Potter books, there have been kid-friendly versions of Butter beer made. Some links for more info:

      Root beer: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rootbeer

      Butter beer: http://recipewise.co.uk/buttered-beere-1588

      On an end- note, water wasn't always potable, so kids would have, in fact, been drinking alcoholic drinks (watered wine, small beers). in some parts of the world they still do.

    2. That absolutely right. I am a fanatic of the harry potter series as well and I have been studying history for the last 8 years. Children were allowed alcoholic beverages. Usually a light beere or ale and sometimes wine. It has only been within the last 100 plus year that children didn't consume alcohol until they were of age. In some countries it is as early as 13 if not earlier. If you think about the world of harry potter, the wizarding world disconected themselves from muggles and hid a way. Many wouldn't know of muggle advancements in thinking and in technology. So to them, it is still perfectly ok to give a kid a light beere or ale. Besides. Butter Beere to begin with is cooked and most of the alcohol is burned off.

  17. Yeah, the butterbeer in the HP books actually is alcoholic, although only mildly so. It's enough to get small creature like house elves drunk, but not so much that it really has any effect on humans.

  19. Used this recipe for a Yule ball I was having for my high school's Harry potter club and everyone loved it! Thanks so much for sharing this.

  20. Erm... I tried looking for unsweetened condensed milk at the store and was told they only had unsweetened evaporated milk. When I looked at Sandra Lee's original recipe, it said "sweetened condensed milk," so you might wanna change that.
