celebrate: a hogwart's halloween

Alright all you Harry Potter fans, we know you've all dreamed about what butterbeer actually tastes like. Well luckily, you don't have to be a witch or wizard to find out. Throughout the world wide web you'll find an array of recipes devout to J.K. Rowling's make believe beverage. You can even make it a Halloween tradition to try different recipes and eventually make up your own. Or, you can try our sweet tooth quenching version.


1 pint (2 cups) cream soda or apple cider
1 cup vanilla ice cream, softened
2 Tablespoons butter
2 Tablespoons brown sugar
dash of cinnamon and nutmeg

Place cream soda or apple cider in a microwave safe mug, and heat on high for about 3 minutes, or until very hot. While it's heating, mix together the vanilla ice cream, butter, brown sugar and cinnamon.

When the soda is hot, pour into a blender, add ice cream mixture, and pulse on high for about 5 seconds. Pour into individual mugs, and sprinkle a dash of nutmeg on top. Enjoy with some fresh apple chips, or another munchie, maybe some ton-tongue toffee?

Bottoms up!
