Sometimes you get the urge for a Butterbeer, but when you’re not near Wizarding World Orlando or the Harry Potter Studio Tour, what do you do?
A Starbucks hack lets you turn your nearest Barista into a bartender somewhere within the Wizarding World (minus the booze). To order a Butterbeer at Starbucks, the magic recipe: Regular Crème Frappuccino plus three pumps of caramel syrup, three pumps of toffee nut syrup, and a caramel drizzle on top.
This is not an official Starbucks drink, but as they do with all orders, the popular coffee chain will make you whatever you want so long as they have the ingredients.
One Starbucks Barista made the Butterbeer hack her store’s featured frappuccino:
And here’s a look at the final product. Mmm, butterbeer.
FoodBeast describes the drink as a “festive fall alternative to all the Pumpkin Spice.” In the Wizarding World the drink costs two sickles (about £0.60), but this drink is going to cost you three to four times that at Starbucks.
The only official Butterbeer recipe is kept under wraps at Universal Orlando’s Wizarding World of Harry Potter and England’s Harry Potter Studio Tour. Naturally the real Butterbeer will be available at the Hollywood and Japanese Wizarding Worlds when they open in the next couple years. The formula to create the official drink was personally selected by Harry Potter author J.K. Rowling after Universal presented her with several versions of the treat.
In the books by Rowling, Butterbeer is slightly alcoholic. It can affect house elves more than it does humans. The version shared in the Muggle world – whether at Starbucks or at a Harry Potter attraction – has zero alcohol in it. It made a brief appearance in the Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince movie as well, and Hermione appears a bit tipsy from having one.
