If you’ve spent a good number of your growing up years gushing over the epic and unparalleled magical series that is Harry Potter, then put your round-framed glasses on because you won’t believe your eyes…and your taste buds! Prepare for this enchanting recipe that’ll send you (and your Firebolt) rising to unbounded heights.
Tucked in the heart of Hogsmeade, a tiny village where wizards and all sorts of enchanted beings amble around, is The Three Broomsticks. A familiar haven to Hogwarts students who are on their third year or above, this cozy pub houses a favorite beverage of Harry, Hermione, and Ron—the beloved Butterbeer.
And though other muggles have tried to recreate this recipe countless times, here’s one that’s sooo easy to make, you don’t need a wand from dear Ollivander to conjure it.
Just as there are three magical objects that comprise The Deathy Hallows, there are three magical (yet not impossible to attain) ingredients needed to complete this wild wizardly treat. A simple combination of Caramel Syrup, Cream Soda, and a generous dollop of Whipped Cream is all you need to concoct this Butterbeer. It’ll surely give you the same awesome vibes and sheer luck as a vial of Felix Felicis would.
So if you’re feeling kinda wizardly and otherworldly, round up your gang of magical folk and enjoy this wonderful sorcery of a drink! You’ll surely be transported right into The Three Broomsticks, no floo powder or any sort of apparition required.
