Starbucks is Making Butterbeer?!

      Reading about all of the deliciously magical foods and drinks in the Harry Potter books has made this Harry Potter fan wish that they were real. After all, who wouldn't want to try warming Butterbeer? Fortunately, however, we Muggles now have the opportunity to try Butterbeer. All you have to do is pay a visit to your local Starbucks and they can make you the wizard's favorite beverage.

Luckily, there are two recipes for Starbucks' Butterbeer. One warm, one cold so you can enjoy Butterbeer no matter what time of year it is. If you're looking for something to coo l you down, you will probably want to try the Butterbeer frappe. In case your barista isn't familiar with how to make a Butterbeer frappe, here is what you'll need to tell them:

  • Ask  for a Creme Frappuccino base. Make sure you ask for whole milk because milk with less fat will make your drink the wrong consistency. 
  • Add three pumps of caramel syrup
  • Add three pumps of toffee nut syrup
  • Top with caramel drizzle

Voila! You have a refreshing Butterbeer frappe for the hot summer months.

        Since you're not going to want a cold drink during the winter months, I've also found the recipe for a hot Butterbeer latte.

  • Whole milk steamer
  • Add caramel syrup (2 for tall, 3 for grande, 4 for venti)
  • Add toffee nut syrup (2 for tall, 3 for grande, and 4 for venti)
  • Add cinnamon dolce syrup (2 for tall, 3 for grande, and 4 for venti)
  • Whipped cream and salted caramel bits on top (or you could even do a creme brulee topping)
  • Optional: add some espresso shots to your drink if you prefer a coffee taste)

Enjoy your Butterbeer and feel like a witch or a wizard -- at least for a few minutes.
