Fun Friday: Making Butter "Beer"

Whether or not you are a Harry Potter fan, you can try these two recipes for butter beer (it's not really beer!) for a fun fall drink. One is a hot drink and one is a cold drink. Try both and see which you prefer. And if you figure out how to make the topping for the cold one so it's not lumpy, let me know!



Hot Butter Beer
You need:

  • 2 cups milk
  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 3 tablespoons hot butterscotch topping
  • 1 cup cream soda (or you can substitute rootbeer if you prefer)
  • large bowl
  • whisk
Do this:







  1. Combine milk, butter, and brown sugar in a microwaveable bowl. Use a whisk to stir them.
  2. Microwave for three minutes.
  3. Remove and stir.
  4. Microwave again until milk is foaming. About 3-4 minutes.
  5. Remove from microwave and mix until the butter is all melted using the whisk. Make sure all the sugar is dissolved and mixed in. 
  6. Heat the butterscotch topping for 30 seconds. Add to mixture and use whip to combine.
  7. Whisk in one cup of cream soda.
  8. You can add sprinkles, ginger, canned whipped cream to your taste.




Even River got in on the hot butter beer



Cold Butter Beer

You Need:
48 ounces Cream Soda
1/4 cup butterscotch syrup
1 cup heavy cream
2 Tbs sugar
2 tsp vanilla extract
1/4 cup melted butter
Two bowls
whisk
beater

To Do:
1. Combine cream soda and butterscotch syrup using the whisk in one bowl
2. In the other bowl, use the mixer to beat the heavy cream until peaks appear
3. Fold in the sugar and vanilla.
4. Add the butter and mix.
5. Serve the butter beer with the cream mixture on top.

Just keeping it real --Our cream mixture came out lumpy, and I think we either didn't beat it long enough or it went lumpy when we added the butter. I sprinkled cinnamon on top to hide it :)




We will just  pretend it's supposed to be a lumpy mountain of goo
What is your favorite fall or winter drink? Or soup? Or something festive? Leave me a recipe to try!!
