We did it! We whipped up (literally) some homemade buttebeer! The girls wanted to try it before we get to The Wizarding World of Harry Potter next weekend at Universal Orlando!
This is how we made it using our favorite cream soda from World Market. (We got the mugs there too!)
- For two mugs...
- 2 12 oz bottle cream soda chilled
- 1 tsp butter flavoring
- 2 C Heavy Whipping Cream
- 1 tsp vanilla flavor
- 1 tsb butter flavor
- 1/4 C sugar
- Mix soda and tsp butter flavor and pour into chilled mugs.
- Beat topping ingredients together and add to mugs, gently placing on top of soda.
- You can add rum to make it an adult beverage.
It was super crazy delicious but REALLLLLY sweet. Nobody could finish a whole mug on their own!
I made this Harry Potter doll out of Kunin Felt and the girls flipped. Jordan asked for a Luna Lovegood and Zoe asked for Ginny Weasley. I think they all turned out so adorable. I stuffed them all with Poly-Fil from Fairfield World. It is my favorite stuffing because it is soft and super easy to work with.
Here is a fun coloring page for you if you like to color!
Zoe is our biggest fan!
Here’s some fun fact data that I found online. “Butterbeer at The Wizarding World of Harry Potter could be served either cold with a taste similar to cream soda or frozen as a slush with a butterscotch-like foam on top. One may also purchase it either in a regular plastic cup or in a collectible mug. As of December 2012, over five million glasses of Butterbeer were served at the park, an event that was commemorated by the park giving away free Butterbeers to one thousand guests that day. Butterbeer was also served at The Making of Harry Potter event.
Because today is Thursday, here is a little throwback picture of you. It is from my honeymoon. Ryp and I had a BLAST at Universal and vowed to bring the girls when they were a little older. I am so happy that this time has come.
