Harry Potter bio:
Harry Potter was born in Godric’s Hollow to Lily and James Potter and was orphaned as an infant when Lord Voldemort killed his parents. He is the only known wizard to survive the Killing Curse which resulted in his famous lightning-bolt scar. Afterwards, Harry Potter moved in with his Aunt Petunia and Uncle Vernon, who made him live in a cupboard under the stairs and never told him of his magical history. 
When Harry Potter was summoned to Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, he embarked on a fateful, seven-year journey with his faithful friends Ron and Hermione in the battle against Voldemort. Through many trials, the trio hunted down Voldemort’s Horcruxes and Harry Potter faced his life-long enemy during the Battle of Hogwarts and finally defeated him. Harry Potter went on to become an Auror and the father of three children (James Sirius, Albus Severus and Lily Luna) after he married Ginny Weasley.

How to Make Butterbeer at Home - Harry Potter's Favorite Drink Recipe

0 comments Thursday, July 14, 2011
Everyone knows Harry Potter's favorite thing to do is meet his besties Ron and Hermione for a nice mug of butterbeer, best served by Madam Rosmerta at the Three Broomsticks in Hogsmeade. But I'll bet you didn't
 know that you don't have to go all the way to Universal Islands of Adventure's Wizarding World of Harry Potter to get your very own butterbeer to share with your friends.

Butterbeer's flavor,  according to J.K.Rowling herself is "a little bit like less-sickly butterscotch", and can be served hot in foaming tankards or nice and cold in a bottle. In Orlando's Universal Wizarding World of Harry Potter you can have one served cold with butterscotch-like foam on top or as a frozen slush.

If you can't make it all the way to Orlando, you can make some for yourself and whoever you'd like to share it with right at home with these varying recipes, depending on your tastes. It might not be as good as Madam Romerta's at the Three Broomsticks pub in Hogsmeade, but I'm sure even Albus would have loved to try anyone's version of Butterbeer. Try your hand at making some.

Things You Will Need

Ingredients are varied depending on recipes listed below.

Recipe #2

Just as easy as Recipe #1 but for adults.


1 cup butterscotch schnapps
7 cups cream soda (2 liter bottle)


1. Carefully mix just before serving, adding the schnapps to the soda then stirring gently to mix well, or the fizz will dissipate too soon

Recipe #3

This one's mostly like Recipe #1 with the addition of butter.


1 cup club soda or cream soda
1/2 cup butterscotch syrup

1. Measure butterscotch and butter into a 16 oz. glass

2. Microwave on high for 60-90 seconds, or until syrup is bubbly and butter is completely melted

2. Mix ice cream and root beer in a blender until combined

3. Divide between the frosted glasses

4. Top each glass with whipped cream and nuts, if desired

5. Serve with spoons and straws

Recipe #8

This one is the most complex on this list.

Haven't tried this one...so beware!


1 pint of vanilla ice cream, softened
1/2 stick (4 tablespoons) butter, at room temperature
1/3 cup light brown sugar
2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
