What is a butterbeer?

Butterbeer is a sweet and creamy drink that is made with soda, sugar, heavy cream, butter and a touch of rum and once made has a butterscotch flavour. The origin dates back to 1588, but has become more popular because of the Harry Potter movies.

In Hogsmeade, you may find the wizardly friends from Hogwarts school enjoying a glass of Butterbeer at the Hogs Head Inn and the Three Broomsticks Inn. Each had a slightly different taste at each location. Some being slightly sweeter and some being a bit dusty.

Since Butterbeer has a small amount of alcohol, it is not a kid-friendly drink making the smarter choice is a DIY Butterbeer Frappuccino.

Frappuccino

Cappuccinos are hot coffee drinks while Frappuccinos are cold drinks using ice, ice cream, coffee and of course a syrup for the flavouring of your choice. This recipe uses both caramel and butterscotch syrup.

Most places that make Frappuccinos will usually use an espresso machine to make the coffee however, you do not need one to make this recipe for a Butterbeer Frappuccino. Just add in a shot of coffee. If you want a specialty coffee for making espresso, check out the many flavours at Bulk Barn.
