There are a lot of Butterbeer recipes out there. They are all terrible.

This one is so fucking fantastic I decided to share it with you Potterites. It's a little sweet, but not cloyingly so. 


  • 2oz Bourbon. I used Woodford Reserve and it was incredible. 

  • 3/4oz Butterscotch sauce. Store bought sauces suck. The 15 minutes it takes to make your own are well worth it.

  • 1 TINY dash of vanilla extract. Just a few drops. It's optional, but YOLO.

  • 4-6oz DIET cream soda. [Regular if you're a total fatass]


  1. Add all ingredients except the diet [don't you DARE use regular] cream soda to a mixing tin, mason jar, tupperware thingy, whatever you have that has a lid.
  2. Shake heartily and strain into a double old fashioned glass.
  3. Top with 4-6oz diet [I'm watching you] cream soda.
  4. Harry Potter cosplay and chug.
