Harry Potter Butterbeer Recipe

Hello! Awhile back, I made butterbeer with my Harry Potter-obsessed best friend. I thought it was really good, and I wanted to make it again, but I didn’t have the recipe. I dug around on the internet for a bit and found what I think is the recipe that we used (from Design Dazzle).


For the drink:

  • 2 liter cream soda
  • 2 tablespoons butter extract
  • 2 teaspoons rum extract

For the cream topping:

  • 1 7oz. container of marshmallow creme
  • 1 cup whipping cream
  • 1 teaspoon rum extract

Note: when I made it with my best friend, the butterbeer was really, really rummy. It’s possible that we might have used 2 tablespoons of rum extract instead of 2 teaspoons. Please do not make this mistake.


Pour the extract into the soda bottle, screw on the lid tightly, and gently roll it around on a flat surface to mix up the flavor. Put the bottle into the refrigerator while making the topping.


Put the marshmallow creme, whipping cream, and rum extract into a bowl and mix it with a whisk. Mix until the topping forms soft peaks.


Pour the butterbeer into a mug, scoop the topping on, and enjoy! ♥


I was at a Renaissance Faire on Sunday (sadly, I have no pictures), and there was a stall selling soda in these great big mugs. The soda was stored in barrels! I saw the mugs and decided to get one, because it would be cool to drink butterbeer from it. ☺
