I found a recipe online that looked amazing and was supposed to be less sweet then other recipes. I have never had butterbeer before so this was a first time for me making any recipe. I got the first part of the recipe ready while my kids were at school which was mixing the cream soda with butter and rum extract. Once they got home I rest of the ingredients and got it all ready. I was so excited to try this with my kids. It looked perfect and delicious. Well it wasn't. It was very strange so I mixed all the topping into the drink and then it was okay but not great. My kids tried theirs and didn't like it. I didn't like it enough to bother to drink theirs and dumped them down the drain. If you have tried butterbeer and loved it and have a link to the recipe I would love to hear about it. This is the the link to the site where I got the recipe : http://www.cookingclassy.com/2015/10/butterbeer-recipe-and-a-harry-potter-party/

A rootbeer float is more simple and is delicious. This was odd.

Maybe you can try the recipe and see if you like it better then my kids and I did. A friend of mine had frozen butterbeer at disney and she said it was amazing.

Are you a fan of Harry Potter as well? Hopefully you find a better tasting recipe then I tried.

I have never tried this before, and I am sure its an acquired taste.

The name was enough to grab my attention, but I'm not sure that I would want to try it. It does look pretty interesting though lol.

I love trying new things. I was hoping it would be good but I didn't like it and neither did my kids. We will be trying another recipe soon with what we have left of the bottle of cream soda I bought.

Haven't tried this. Based on the photo, it looks like a float.

It doesn't have any ice cream in it like a float would though.
