I've looked up a few recipes and none sound too appealing or have too many ingredients or just blegh... and since I don't see myself going to Hogsmeade any time soon, I decided to make myself a cup of butterbeer, my own version.
It's really simple and can be made with 4 ingredients (possibly 3). I may continue to experiment, but even my muggle husband enjoyed this!
2 packets of Alpine Instant Apple Cider (or whatever brand of apple cider instant or not)
water (if using ready made apple cider just pop it in the microwave for a minute or two)
about a teaspoon or so of butter
2 small scoops vanilla ice cream
I put my cider packets and butter in my cup while waiting for my water to boil.
Once I poured in my boiling water, I mixed everything very well.
I put a couple of small scoops of vanilla ice cream in my cup and mixed it a little.
OMFG! here it is in all it's glory.
So tell me, what do you think? Do you have your own butterbeer recipe you've tried?
