Can't make it to a Harry Potter theme park soon enough? Bring home a cup of the magic with our Butterbeer recipe, which perfectly imitates the Butterbeer served at Universal. In a large container filled with ice, combine all Butterbeer ingredients and stir. This mixture is sweet, fizzy and smooth; butterscotch extract and dark rum combine with cream soda to create an addicting, delicious drink. Enjoy with or without a boozy whipped topping: Use a fork to combine the whipped topping, rum, vanilla extract and salt. Drop a tablespoon of whipped topping into the bottom of a goblet or beer stein, pour Butterbeer over top. The whipped topping will foam up and float to the top. Watch out for foamy mustaches!


Ingredients:
2 liters cream soda 
1 oz butterscotch extract, we really liked Faeries Finest
½ teaspoon Vanilla NutButter Extract or Vanilla Extract
5 oz of Kraken Rum (substitute 3 oz dark rum and 2 oz of spiced rum if Kraken is unavailable)

Topping:
16 oz whipped topping 
1 teaspoon dark rum
1 teaspoon Vanilla NutButter Extract or Vanilla Extract
1 teaspoon salt

Makes:
One punch bowl

Make it a mocktail:
Want all the goodness of Butterbeer without the alcohol? Skip the Kraken and use a tablespoon of of rum extract in the drink itself, and a splash of rum extract in the whipped topping. You'll get all the richness and depth of flavor that rum provides without the booze.

Troubleshooting:
Can't find Butterscotch Extract? Not to worry! Check out the original recipe, which makes use of much easier to find butter and rum extracts to achieve the flavor of butterscotch. 

Celebrating:
Harry Potter
