Shhh! How to Order Secret BUTTERBEER at Starbucks!

In the popular HARRY POTTER books and films, Butterbeer is served cold in bottles and hot in "foaming tankards".

Fans have been flocking the Orlando to visit The Wizarding World of Harry Potter to get the official theme park version of the fictional beverage, which is described as being similar to cream soda, with butterscotch foam on top (yum!).

Those fans not wanting to venture to Orlanda, or to Diagon Alley, good news as enterprising bloggers have found a way to get the next best thing at your local Starbucks, thanks to the chain's holiday ingredients (which means, they'll only be available for a limited time!).

Sadly, you can't just order it, but instead have to provide your barista of choice with the below recipe, courtesy of

  • A Creme Frappuccino base. Don't skimp on the fat by asking for skim or 2% milk as whole milk is required for the right consistency.
  • Add 3 pumps of caramel syrup.
  • Add 3 pumps of toffee nut syrup.
  • Top with caramel drizzle, wave your wand 3x and say Bibbity Bobbity Boo! (Damnit, wrong book!)
