Harry Potter Butterbeer

Made with rich butterscotch flavors and topped with caramel whipped cream, this is one magical treat.


  • For the vanilla syrup:
  • 1 1/4 cups sugar
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 cup corn syrup
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • Juice of 1/2 lemon
  • For the caramel syrup:
  • 4 tablespoons salted butter
  • 1 cup dark brown sugar, packed
  • 3/4 cup + 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • Club soda


  1. For the vanilla syrup, add sugar, water and corn syrup to a saucepan and simmer until sugar dissolves. Remove from heat, and stir in vanilla extract and lemon juice. Cool to room temperature, then store in the fridge.
  2. For the caramel syrup, melt butter in a saucepan on medium heat. Add brown sugar and stir with a wooden spoon to coat with butter. Cook for 3-5 minutes, until sugar is no longer grainy, and is thick and bubbling.
  3. Remove from heat, and add 3/4 cup of heavy cream, whisking until incorporated. Return to heat, and cook for an additional 8 minutes on low heat, whisking occasionally. Add vanilla, then remove from heat and let cool to room temperature.
  4. Whisk 1/2 cup of heavy cream with 3 tablespoons caramel syrup until soft peaks form.
  5. Add 1/4 cup vanilla syrup, 1/4 cup caramel syrup and 1/4 cup club soda to a tall frosty mug. Stir to combine. Top off with club soda, and stir again. Top with caramel whipped cream, and enjoy!
