Frozen Butterbeer

Let's face it, slushies are awesome!  So, creating a frozen version of the Butterbeer recipe I found was too much to resist.  Here's how I did it:

Frozen Butterbeer
(1 serving)
1/4 c. brown sugar mixture*
1/4 c. cream soda
2 c. cream soda ice cubes (approximately 1 ice cube tray)

Fill up one ice cube tray with cream soda and let sit in the freezer overnight
Mix together the brown sugar mixture and the 1/4 c. cream soda 
Pour in the blender along with the ice cubes
Blend away and add more cream soda if it's too thick
Pour in a glass and top with whipped froth from the Original Butterbeer recipe, if you wish

*Brown Sugar Mixture from Original Butterbeer Recipe
1 c. brown sugar (light or dark)
2 tbs. water
6 tbs. butter
1/2 tsp. salt (if you use salted butter like I did, skip this ingredient)
1/2 tsp. cider vinegar
1/4 c. heavy cream

In a small saucepan over medium, combine the brown sugar and water.
Bring to a gentle boil and cook, stirring until it reads 240 F on a candy thermometer.
*If you don't have a candy thermometer, boil it until it reaches soft ball stage.
Stir in the butter, salt, vinegar and 1/4 heavy cream on low heat.
Set aside to cool to room temperature.
Once the mixture has cooled, stir in the rum extract.

How cute are those ice cubes?!
I didn't put the froth on top so you could see it in it's purest form :-)


  1. That looks really delicious- but what is brown sugar mixture? I would love to make this for my 10 yr old(and myself) so clarification would be great:)

  2. Hi Arlene!
    I was referring to the brown sugar mixture from the original Butterbeer recipe. I will include it for the Frozen Butterbeer. Thanx for the comment!

  4. I went to Universal Studios a few weeks ago and when i tasted that Butterbeer, I said right then i needed to find the recipe to that drink..



  5. After going to Harry potter world at the new year, my husband and I were dying to find a good recipe for the butter beer. We tried this recipe, and it really is very similar to the frozen stuff! We were very pleasantly surprised! Thanks for posting this, I never would hae figured it out on my own!!! Ashley C.

  6. How much rum extract? It's not in the original recipe.

    1. 1/2 teaspoon of rum extract
