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).
There are variations of the drink recipesfloating around in various cornersof the internet, but here are the recipes I used:
?Butterbeer latteA whole milk latte with two shots of espressoTwo shots of caramel syrupThree shots of toffee nut syrupThree shots of cinnamon dolce syrupWhipped creamCaramel flakes (although the Starbucks I went to in Austin was out of these)
Butterbeer Latte...so good! Now I need a massive workout to burn this bad boy off. Totally worth it! How to order: ask for two shots espresso, two pumps caramel sauce, three pumps of toffee nut, and three pumps of cinnamon dolce in whole milk. Add whipped cream and caramel crumble on top.]]
