Make Your Own Butterbeer!

Those of us who are Harry Potter nerds through and through have often fantasized about kicking back after a fuckin’ long day with a Butterbeer, the drink of choice of many witches and wizards of our general age. It is especially difficult for those of us who have yet to visitThe Wizarding World of Harry Potter in Florida.

Now, thanks to Feast of Fiction, there’s no need to don pants and we can make our own Butterbeer right at home!  There have been fan-made Butterbeer recipes for ages, but this actually looks really good.
