The latest Harry Potter movie 'Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince' releases today! Unfortunately I wasn't able to get tickets for opening night as I was caught up with work and realised too late so I have tickets for Sunday night instead. I'm super excited!
Since I'm an avid fan I figured I would try out a recipe that is Harry Potterish! In the book the one thing that always intrigued me was the butterbeer...it is described as being warm and soothing on a cold day with that bubbleish tickle. Sounds like a warm soda with a butterish richness.
So with no idea on where to begin I searched on google and found this recipe.
1 cup (8 oz) club soda or cream soda
½ cup (4 oz) butterscotch syrup (ice cream topping)
½ tablespoon butter
Measure butterscotch and butter into a 2 cup (16 oz) glass. Microwave on high for 1 to 1½ minutes, or until syrup is bubbly and butter is completely incorporated. Stir and cool for 30 seconds, then slowly mix in club soda. Mixture will fizz quite a bit. Serve and enjoy a perfectly warm Hogwarts treat for two!
I haven't had a chance to make it yet as I don't have butterscotch syrup at home...but I'll try it out over the weekend. Just wanted to share it with anyone out there who is as big of a potterhead as me!
Now let me ask you...do you have a movie/book obsession?
