Anyone who has ever read the “Harry Potter” books or seen any of the eight movies chronicling the life of the boy wizard wonder has an acute case of FOMOOB by now. Don’t know what that stands for? Duh: Fear Of Missing Out On Butterbeer. All we ever hear about is Butterbeer this, Butterbeer that, Butterbeer is so great and tasty and delicious and magical.
So, like, when can we try it? The official, J.K. Rowling-sanctioned recipe, a dual layer concoction that’s liquidy on the bottom and foamy on top, is only served at the Wizarding World of Harry Potter theme park, and Florida can only fit so many wizarding wannabes at a time. What’s an unmatriculated Hogwarts hopeful to do?
The answer, fellow Muggles (who have self-sorted into Ravenclaw anyway, thank you very much), is finally here. It’s time for us to make kitchen magic (or Starbucks magic, if that’s the route you decide to go) and whip up some Butterbeer.
Ahead, six Butterbeer recipes even Muggles can enjoy.
