"I Can't Believe It's Not Hogsmeade!" Butterbeer

In honor of the premier of the final installment in the Harry Potter series we're serving up a Three Broomsticks staple- butterbeer! The sweet, frothy drink is perfect on a cold winter's night or whenever you need a bit of magic in your life. We hope you enjoy it as much as everyone's favorite trio does.
Butterbeer: taking the phrase "buttery and delicious" to a whole new level since 1997
Ingredients: (for 2 servings)
2 Tbs butter
1/4 cup sweetened condensed milk
1/4 butterscotch syrup
about 1 1/2 cups cream soda
1 Tbs honey

Nuke the honey, butterscotch, condensed milk, and butter in a heatproof cup for 1 minute. I find it easier to deal with the condensed milk and honey by spooning it out with a tablespoon (1/4 cup = 4 Tbs). Another helpful hint is to use nonstick spray on your cup/spoon. In a separate cup, heat the cream soda for 1 1/2 minutes. Divide your syrup mix into 2 mugs and carefully pour in the warm soda. Mix very gently so it stays frothy and delicious. Sip with your pumpkin pasties and chocolate frogs!

That's all for now! Everyone enjoy the movie and try not to bawl too hard when it's over (we know we will)! Keep cooking and remember:

No kitchen, no problem!
