This is a good receipe, but subbing the cream for one Lifesavers Butterum melted into a mug makes a really nice flavour, and a cute little fizz when added
We were looking for a butterbeer recipe to make for a Harry Potter Scene It party (Scene it is a movie game) and this was the first one we tried, because it looks like it would be good (and very simple). I think the heated aspect of the drink was what we weren't over the moon about (and maybe too much butter). Thanks for posting, though--it's very interesting to see how people have imagined fictional drinks!
My two daughters and their friends rated this recipe a winner -- so did I! The consensus proclaimed the drink "fun, warm, and yummy!" The younger daughter suggested we put the butterbeer back into the root beer bottle for an authentic feel, so with the help of a funnel, we did, and that was kinda fun too. I used 1 tablespoon butter per bottle, and nonfat half-n-half. A good after school or family movie night drink. We keep root beer on hand now! Thanks for posting a popular recipe, darthlaurie!
