Starbucks Barista Creates Harry Potter Drink Butterbeer

It won’t be advertised nationally, but Starbucks (SBUX[1]) is allowing customers to order the famous Harry Potter Butterbeer — so long as you provide them this recipe.

While the drink of Harry Potter fame is not an official drink at Starbucks — it’s licensed to Universal Studios and JK Rowling — one SBUX barista created the drink using regular Starbucks ingredients.

The recipe you’ll need to provide, care of one Starbucks barista who made the drink their signature speciality[2]: Regular Crème Frappuccino plus three pumps of caramel syrup, three pumps of toffee nut syrup, and a caramel drizzle on top.

FoodBeast describes[3] the drink as a “festive fall alternative to all the Pumpkin Spice.”

In the Wizarding World of Harry Potter, the magical drink sets you back two sickles (about £0.60), but at Starbucks expect that to about quadruple.

For those who know the Harry Potter books, Butterbeer is slightly alcoholic and impacts house elves in a bad way. You or your kids may remember that in Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, Hermione got a lil drunkish from drinking one.

In the Muggle (human) world, the butterbeer is non-alcoholic.
