Our recipe for Harry Potter Butterbeer tastes just like what they sell at the Wizarding World of Harry Potter. A no-cook method that is SO easy!
Harry Potter Butterbeer
We took a trip there last weekend and we fell in LOVE with this tasty drink. I knew I had to recreate it once I got home. It turns out it is SO easy to make! I will definitely be whipping up a batch for my next Harry Potter movie marathon. You can make this recipe two ways. If you are going for super authentic, you can add caramel and butter extracts to the cream soda. This really adds that extra butter-y flavor and makes it taste EXACTLY like the real thing.
If you are looking for a more simple recipe, you can just use plain cream soda. It still tastes SUPER yummy and you don’t have to spend the extra money on extracts only to put them in your pantry and never use them again. I think it tastes awesome both ways!

More foods we LOVED at the Wizarding World of Harry Potter and where to find them:
The Ribs Platter – The Three Broomsticks: We loved these ribs! The glaze was so yummy and I like that it is served with corn on the cob. Even though we were in Hogsmeade, I felt like this was a meal worthy of the Great Hall at Hogwarts!
Fish and Chips – The Three Broomsticks: These fish and chips were SO good! Sometimes I feel like fish and chips is all chip and no fish, but that was not the case here. Plus, the tartar sauce was so yummy that I dipped all my chips in it too!
Shepherd’s Pie – The Three Broomsticks: This Shepherd’s Pie was the perfect comfort food. I felt like I was in Molly Weasley’s kitchen eating a real home-cooked meal. I loved how they swirl the mashed potatoes on top!
Every Flavored Beans, Chocolate Frogs, and MORE – Honeydukes: Honeydukes was definitely my favorite shop. It was just like I imagined it when I read the books! Every nook and cranny was lined with goodies. We bought LOTS of souvenirs here. Our favorites were the Every Flavor Beans (they MEAN every flavor) and the Chocolate Frogs (they come with a cool collectors card, just like in the books). Here are a few shots from the store:
Where can I find Butterbeer at Universal Studios?
Butterbeer can easily be found inside of Universal Studios. As you enter The Wizarding World of Harry Potter, there is a bright red Butterbeer cart where you can purchase Butterbeer and Frozen Butterbeer. Butterbeer is also on the menu at The Three Broomsticks, of course!

perfect recipe, my friends tried it. I thought it was perfectly delineated in the recipe, but I just didn’t like it. I love Rum but I would never get a “hot buttered rum”. I’m juat not that interested in butter flavoured things. My friends thought it was brilliant though.
Thanks for this recipe.
My hatband and I just went to Universal and could not get how great the butterbeer was. This recipe tasted exactly like it! I took another comment suggestion and added 5 drops of the caramel and butter extract to a single can of cream soda since I didn’t want to make a huge batch. I then made half of the amount of topping which left me with some leftovers.
