How to Make Butterbeer from Harry Potter (Elixir Mixer Version)

What is a Butterbeer Elixir?

A Butterbeer Elixir is a delightful, frothy drink reminiscent of the famous beverage from the wizarding world. This non-alcoholic treat combines sweet, creamy, and slightly spicy flavors to give you a taste of magic with every sip.


  • 1 cup of cream soda
  • 2 tablespoons of butterscotch syrup
  • 1/4 cup of heavy cream or whipping cream
  • 1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1 tablespoon powdered sugar
  • A pinch of salt


  1. In the Elixir Mixer, combine the heavy cream, vanilla extract, powdered sugar, and a pinch of salt. Whisk on your preferred speed until the mixture is frothy but not fully whipped.
  2. Pour the cream soda into your serving glass, leaving about an inch from the top.
  3. Gently stir in the butterscotch syrup into the cream soda, ensuring it's well mixed.
  4. Top off with the frothy cream mixture from the Elixir Mixer, letting it float on top.
  5. Optionally, you can drizzle a little more butterscotch syrup on top for an added magical touch.


Where does the inspiration for Butterbeer come from?

Butterbeer is a famed drink from J.K. Rowling's "Harry Potter" series. It's a favorite among wizards and is sold in various magical establishments.

Is Butterbeer alcoholic?

In the wizarding world, it's mentioned to have very low alcohol content. However, this recipe is non-alcoholic, making it suitable for wizards and muggles of all ages.

Can I make a warm version?

Certainly! Gently heat the cream soda and butterscotch mix on the stovetop or in a microwave, then follow the rest of the steps.

How can I make a dairy-free version?

Substitute the heavy cream with a dairy-free alternative like coconut cream, and ensure your butterscotch syrup is dairy-free.
