Warm Butterbeer

It’s funny. The thing from Harry Potter that I can most clearly imagine is the butterbeer. Never mind the Quidditch games or the Gryffindor Common Room, Professor Moody or the Dark Lord—those I can barely conjure up in my head, and have found the movies to be a good replacement for anything I could have formed in my mind. But butterbeer is a different story. Apparently, I am all about the food.

To me, from what I remember (I haven’t read Potter in ages) or from what I imagined, butterbeer is translucent and golden, fizzy, and tastes like warm liquid butterscotch. As clear as it is in my mind, I find it to be a huge challenge to recreate it with all-natural ingredients.

This is what I have come up with:

Warm Butterbeer

4 tablespoons butterscotch sauce (I used a recipe from SimplyRecipes)
2 tablespoons heavy cream
2 bottles of cream soda

Divide butterscotch sauce between glasses. Top with cream. Heat cream soda until very warm and pour the cream and butterscotch.
