Mmm, Butterbeer Latte

This recipe graphic has been around for about a year (you know, forever in internet time), but I recently spotted it on Pinterest for the first time. It looks appealing and sounds perfect and seemed like it would turn out better than my attempts at making cold butterbeer (which I can't figure out).

I'm pleased to report that the end result is sweet but not overly cloying, tastes lightly of butterscotch, and is a pleasant treat. I made and drank this on a hot night, and I'm already thinking about how satisfying it will be when the weather gets colder.

Just a couple of notes to keep in mind: when you melt the butter and brown sugar together in the beginning, don't let them caramelize too long - just long enough for them to mix and taste a little like butterscotch. Once you've added the milk be sure to stir it thoroughly and bring the mixture to boil over low heat. Milk foams when it boils, and it will boil over in a second so pay close attention.

Drink it as hot as you can stand it!

  1. Ooo I'm so trying this! Thanks for the tips, when I first looked at the ingredients I was thinking it might be too sweet, but I'll take your word for it. :)

    1. I've had the butterbeer at Wizarding World and though I liked it, it was almost too sweet for me. This was almost a nutty flavor.

  3. Hello, I've been long time lurker that's posting for the first time. Love your blog btw. Do you know if the milk can be substituted with coconut milk?

    1. Thank you for the kind words!

      And hmm. I'm not sure if the coconut flavor would play nice with everything. It wouldn't be the same, but I don't think it would be bad. I think soy milk could possibly work.
