Butterbeer – Cold, Frozen or Hot? | Butterbeer

Butterbeer at Universal Orlando

One of the great benefits of the Wizarding World of Harry Potter and Diagon Alley at Universal Orlando is the ease of access to Butterbeer.  The parks offer three varieties:  cold, frozen, and hot.  You can also choose whether to have your drink in a plastic cup or in a souvenir mug.  We also want to mention that they offer Butterbeer flavored ice cream.  While we won’t be discussing that in depth here, we do suggest giving that a try as well!

Which Butterbeer Variety is the Best?

As we said, you can order this drink cold, frozen, or hot.  While the cold varieties seem to make sense being that the majority of the year it is pretty hot at the parks, the hot variety has it’s brief moment in the spotlight. The cold variety is just served chilled and tastes similar to a cream soda. The frozen variety has the consistency of a slurpee.

This wizardly drink is delicious any way you order it.  There appears, however, to be disagreement about which way is the most delicious.

We think Universal Orlando did a great job bringing this amazing drink to life.  They also make it easily accessible and offer it in many locations throughout the Wizarding World of Harry Potter and Diagon Alley.

While a homemade recipe isn’t quite going to live up to what the parks offer, it can be a nice way to hold you over until your next trip.  As an added bonus, buy the souvenir mug while in the park and then use it when drinking the homemade Butterbeer at home!
