By now you’ve probably seen the so-called Harry Potter Starbucks drinks making the rounds online. The “secret menu” consists of two drinks, a butterbeer latte and a butterbeer frappucino.  The drinks are meant to mimic the flavor of butterbeer, which in the Harry Potter novels a popular drink that tastes “a little bit like less sickly butterscotch” (at least according to a 2002 interview with author J.K. Rowling in “Bon Appetit” magazine).
