If you are an avid fan of the Harry Potter series, I'm so sure that you know what I'm talking about. Ever since I read about this drink, I could only imagine how it would taste like. See, I'm not a fan of beer. I don't like the bitter taste but a Butterbeer sounds like fun to me. I can imagine that it's sweet, with hints of caramel and of course, it must be buttery!
Who among you grew up with the story of Harry Potter? I did! Literally! I was in 3rd year high school when the book series became popular and when the first movie came about. The last book came out when I was already starting my career in the corporate world and the last movie installment of book 7 came out when I already had Cherienne. It was such a journey to wait for each book to be published and each movie to be shown. When I heard that a food hack is available for Butterbeer, I was as giddy as a child to try it out.
If in case a Barista doesn't know how to make one, or you're just too curious to know the recipe, check it out below. Note: Starbucks' version is alcohol free :)
- Order a Regular Creme Frappuccino

The verdict: It was just OKAY for me. It was sweet, tasted like my trusty Caramel Creme Frappe but had hints of the festive Toffee Nut. Guess I was just looking for a more buttery flavor. I was expecting more of a Butter Ball candy like taste. But then again, that's just me. I never had the chance to try the original drink from The Wizarding World of Harry Potter in Orlando and so I really don't have a point for comparison. But in any case, it somehow lives up to my dream of having to drink some Butterbeer!
