Homemade Butterbeer

I read through the entire Harry Potter series twice before tasting an actual sip of Butterbeer with my own lips. Reading through the books, I drooled every time the delicious drink was described. Butterbeer.. what a dreamy sounding drink. The name sounds slightly naughty like maybe kids shouldn’t indulge, but they can. Because it’s allllll glorious sugar that’s hidden inside. My boys and I went to The Wizarding World of Harry Potter in November and one of the first things we did was order a couple glasses of Butterbeer. It was exactly as I expected it to be, but better. Sammy and I fought over the last sips because we couldn’t get enough. Since our return home he has been asking constantly for me to make the homemade version of Butterbeer and we finally got it done over winter break. Our version tastes very much like the original. It is sugary, cold, dreamy and buttery all at once.
