Mater's Adult Butterbeer


I've tried a couple of recipes for butter beer with alcohol that I found online, and they all were either so sweet or had oily butter in them that made me sick. I opted for a simplified version that tasted less sickly and was strong enough for someone larger than a house elf. Great for Harry Potter-themed parties or Halloween. Serve super chilled in a frosted mug — it can magically warm up even the coldest wizards.

Prep Time:
5 mins
Total Time:
5 mins


  • 1 fluid ounce spiced rum (such as Sailor Jerry®)

  • 1 fluid ounce butterscotch schnapps

  • ½ teaspoon imitation butter flavoring

  • 1 (12 fluid ounce) can or bottle cream soda

  • 1 small scoop vanilla ice cream (Optional)


  1. Stir rum and schnapps together in a frosted 14-ounce mug.

  2. Pour butter flavoring into cream soda, then quickly pour soda into the chilled mug. Gently drop ice cream into the soda mixture.


For a thicker and sweeter froth, use 1 small scoop of your favorite vanilla or butterscotch ice cream.

One ounce each of schnapps and rum is for general guests. For a more potent grog, try 1 1/2 ounces schnapps and 1 1/3 ounces rum.
