A very yummy butterbeer recipe!

My family really enjoyed this recipe. I have never had butter beer before so I didn't really know what to expect but I will probably be making this again with a few tweaks to fit our families taste. I did make a few changes the recipe I read the previous reviews and decided to use a cinnamon stick instead of the powdered cinnamon to prevent the powder floating at the top. It worked out quite nicely. The cinnamon stick infused into the drink a mild cinnamon flavor with no weird floaties. I also added a tad more butter scotch topping (about 1 tsp more). I think this is where I will make an additional change in the future. Although the finished drink was very delicious my family wanted it to have a stronger butterscotch flavor. I am not sure if I will add more butterscotch topping or try something else to intensify the flavor without adding too much sweetness. Overall a great recipe to start with and one that you can easily tweak to your own taste. Oh! One more thing. I also garnished it with a whipped cream that was slightly sweetened with a little melted marshmallow cream. Just a little as the drink is already sweet I didn't sweeten the whipped cream much at all. Thanks for sharing your recipe!
