Love Harry Potter AND coffee? You have got to try this butterbeer latte!
Yessss! I am so so excited to share today’s drink recipe with yall! FOR SO MANY REASONS! First and foremost – I am a Harry Potter nerd. I love love the whole Harry Potter series and have read all the books multiple times. I’ve seen all the movies and if there is a HP marathon on TV, well, I’m busy. I love them THAT much.
Funny side story about HP. When Ryon and I first started dating the last Harry Potter book (the Deathly Hallows part 2) had just come out. We turned date night into “Kelley needs the last HP book” night and made a trip to Barnes and Noble to buy it. There was a huge display when you first walked in and I squealed from excitement. I grabbed a book and so did Ryon. He flipped to the back page and looked up at me and said “Poor Harry!”
Not.even.kidding! I was SO mad at him! I avoided him the rest of the night and still hold a slight grudge against him for hurting my Harry Potter loving heart. (Side note – that’s not how the book ends, thank goodness!)
In the books and movies they talk about butterbeers a lot. They are a drink that the students from Hogwarts drink when out and about. You can even order one at Disney in their Harry Potter world. Which is great if you live close to Disney, but I want a butterbeer all.the.time. Or at least a few times a year.
My firs time trying a copycat butterbeer was a year or so ago when my blogging friend Diana posted a “how -to” order one at Starbucks. Say whaaa?!? Coffee and Harry Potter? My life is complete! I immediately went and ordered one and yes, my life truly was complete. Until it was gone.
So I present to you the make-at-home butterbeer latte! Or the make-all-the-time butterbeer latte. Or the make-while-watching-a-Harry-Potter-marathon butterbeer latte. Whichever.
To make this delicious drink at home you will need English toffee syrup, caramel syrup and instant espresso. (I LOVE this Grandos double espresso!) Or if you have a way to make espresso at home – even better!
- 6 ounces boiling water
- 1 tablespoon instant espresso
- 1 tablespoon English toffee syrup
- 1 tablespoon caramel syrup
- 1 cup of milk
- whipped cream and caramel sauce for topping
- Stir in the instant espresso in the boiling water until dissolved.
- In a glass add the English toffee and caramel syrups. Pour the hot espresso mixture over and combine.
- Pour in the milk and give a quick stir.
- Top with whipped cream and caramel.
