Butterbeer.


I think all Harry Potter fans can agree that the most exciting thing about WWOHP and the studio tour in London is that muggles finally get to taste butterbeer. However, I don't know about any of you, but when I visited the studio tour last year I found the butterbeer to be a little underwhelming. It didn't taste at all the way I had imagined Butterbeer to taste. It was sweeter than I had expected and the flavours were a little too artificial for my liking.

So today I thought I would share with you my own recipe for butterbeer. This isn't the chilled, bottled butterbeer Winky drowned her sorrows with. This is a hot, steaming tankard mug of butterbeer to warm you up while you spend a pleasant winter's day with your friends at The Three Broomsticks.


Ingredients
  • 1 cup of milk (I just measure it in the mug I'll be drinking from)
  • 1 tbsp brown sugar
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/2 tsp butter
Method
  1. Heat the milk in a small saucepan over a medium-high heat
  2. Add the rest of the ingredients
  3. Stir gently until the sugar and butter are completely melted and the milk is heated through but don't let the mixture reach boiling point
  4. If you want you can use a hand mixer to froth up the mixture but I didn't bother
  5. Pour it into your favourite mug and enjoy!


If it's not quite buttery enough for you then you can always add a little more and tailor the recipe to your preference. I definitely recommend using the real stuff though, if you can. I'm not sure wizards are working with Flora or olive oil substitutes!
