Butterbeer
  • Serves icon Makes 1
  • Time icon Ready in 5 minutes

Our butterbeer recipe is inspired by JK Rowling’s Harry Potter books – a wizard drink often imbibed at The Three Broomsticks Inn. We’ve made ours not so child-friendly with a good glug of toffee vodka.

Ingredients

  • 3 tbsp advocaat
  • 4 tsp toffee vodka (from Ocado and thedrinkshop.com)
  • Yellow food colouring (optional)
  • A thumb-size piece of fresh ginger
  • Alcoholic ginger beer, to serve

Method

  1. Put the advocaat in a pint glass with toffee vodka and a few drops of the yellow colouring.
  2. Coarsely grate the ginger into a clean J-cloth or square of muslin, gather up the cloth around it and squeeze some of the juice into the glass (how much is up to you – we like it quite fiery).
  3. Top with the ginger beer and serve while there’s still a head on top.

  1. For an alcoholic-free drink we suggest putting a scoop of caramel ice cream in a glass and topping with ginger beer to make a float.
