For anyone who didn’t get their Hogwarts letter, the fact that can’t do magic is a source of constant disappointment.

Not only do we not get to be friends with Harry and the gang, we also have to suffer the indignity of having to get the train rather than apparate and not being able to fly on a broomstick.

But now, for the first time ever, we no longer have to go without the delicious delights of the famous drink Butterbeer in our everyday life.

Warm up with a delicious coffee

The tipple, beloved of witches and wizards everywhere, is ubitquitous, tasty and convivial.

It’s served both hot and cold in pubs and is minimally alcohol enough that children can drink it (although it makes house-elves tipsy in an instant).

Butterbeer is served at official Harry Potter venues worldwide

While the drink can be found at Harry Potter attractoins worldwide, there’s never been a way to convincingly recreate the beverage closer to home until now.

If you know what to ask for, your local Starbucks can charm you a butterbeer in the time it takes to get your normal flat white (although it’s not officially associated with the books and movies we love so much).

The drink is exactly like what you’d find on the Hogwarts Express

The Butterbeer Frappe will have you looking twice to make sure that you’re not wearing robes instead of your usual Stan Smiths, and the Hot Butterbeer Latte will make you so happy you could conjure a patronus as easily as breathing.

The drinks can be found on Starbucks secret menu.

The Butterbeer Frappe is made with a vanilla creme frappuccino base, with three pumps of caramel syrup and three pumps of toffee nut syrup for the grande size of the drink.

Sweet and satisfying, it’s even better if you sprinkle some cinnamon on the top to give it a spicy kick.

The Hot Butterbeer Latte is where the sparks really start to fly. Made with steamed milk, two espresso shots, two pumps of caramel syrup, three pumps of toffee nut syrup and three pumps of cinnamon dolce syrup, it’s a concoction that Madame Roserta herself would be proud to serve to Three Broomstick’s patrons.

Grab a handful of sickles and knuts and fly down to Starbucks as soon as you can to get these drinks before Peeves gets his hands on them.
