Butter Beer

Harry Potter has made his appearance in our household for the last 11 years. Yes when Akanksha, my kid no 2 was born. I still remember my husband coming to me and handing me the first HP book Philosopher’s Stone and from page 1 I was hooked!! Thankfully Akanksha was of the age when she slept most of the time so I could read the book.

Then I started with the book 2 and so on.

To get my elder daughter reading, she was 7 then, I read out the books to her. I just cannot imagine how I read out two full books then ditched her half way in the third book. Since she was interested in the book she finished it!! Down she went hook line and sinker!!! Now she is the one who is our HP encyclopedia.

My younger daughter celebrates her birthday on 6th Dec. and I had expected to have party on the 8th Dec a Saturday, but unfortunately that was not to be. So we are having her birthday on the 15th Dec.

Why am I mentioning this?

I plan to have a HP theme party for the kid and she does not know, yes a surprise. She has already got her acceptance letter from Hogwarts!

In preparation I made this butter beer! There are more that I plan to blog but right now it’s just this.

It’s to be my welcome drink!!

Do let send me your feedback.

Here is the recipe from Mugglenet here. It’s just the same I have substituted butterscotch with chocolate an d Irish coffee syrup


·       1 cup (8 oz) club soda 
·       1/2 cup less 2 tsp (4 oz) chocolate syrup   (ice cream topping)
·       2 tsp Irish coffee syrup
·       1/2 tablespoon butter

1.    Heat the chocolate and Irish coffee syrup with butter in the microwave 1 minute or until syrup is bubbly and butter has melted.
2.    Stir and cool for 30 seconds, then slowly mix in soda. Mixture will fizz quite a bit.
3.     Serve in two coffee mugs; a perfectly warm Hogwarts treat for two!
