OK, it’s actually not quiiiiite that simple. Like, you can’t just go up to the counter and say, “Venti butterbeer, please!”, but thanks to the seasonal appearance of toffee nut syrup, you CAN order a Starbucks drink that tastes exactly like the butterbeer described in the Harry Potter books. Here’s the off-menu recipe for Muggles with a sweet tooth:
- Crème Frappuccino base, made with whole milk (not skim or 2%, which will mess up the consistency)
- 3 pumps of caramel syrup
- 3 pumps of toffee nut syrup
- Top with caramel drizzle
Ta-da! A butterbeer fix for Harry Potter fans who don’t have the time/resources/magical powers necessary for a trip to Hogsmeade or Diagon Alley. I’m definitely going to have to give this a try.
