Why should Harry Potter and the rest of the wizarding world be the only ones to enjoy this delectable beverage?  
This butterbeer is a non-alcoholic, creamy drink with the flavor of real butterscotch (nothing like the candy - more like brown sugar).  Perfect for parties, movie nights, a dessert beverage, or really anytime!  This yummy butterbeer is sure to please!

Butterscotch adapted from Simply Recipes

Butterscotch -
4 tbsp butter
1 cup brown sugar
1/2 tsp Kosher salt
3/4 cups heavy cream
2 tsp vanilla extract

Heavy Cream
Cream Soda

1.  For the Butterscotch: melt the butter in a medium saucepan set over medium heat.

2.  Once the butter is melted, stir in the sugar and salt.  Cook, stirring often, until the sugar melts (about 5 minutes).

3.  Whisk in the 3/4 cups cream.  Cook, stirring occasionally, for 10 minutes.

4.  Allow the mixture to cool to room temperature.  Once cool, stir in the vanilla.

5.  For the Butterbeer: butterbeer ratio is one part butterscotch, one part cream, and 16 parts cream soda (example: 1 tbsp butterscotch, 1 tbsp cream, 1 cup cream soda).
    To Mix: stir together the butterscotch and cream in a mug or glass.  Stir in about 1/4 of the cream soda that you will be using.  Pour in the remaining cream soda (slowly to avoid overflow).

6.  Serve!
