This year’s Wizarding Weekend was full of surprises! Witches and warlocks roamed the streets of downtown Ithaca amongst balloon animals, Butterbeer and broomsticks. Our furniture vignettes in Press Bay Alley were a crowd-pleaser and drew in the city’s biggest Hogwarts enthusiasts.
Back at the store we served homemade butterbeer and lots of you were clamoring for the recipe! Here it is:
Serves 2-3 people
1 can or 1.5 cups A&W Cream Soda
1.5 cups Whole Milk
1/3 cup Half n’ Half
1-2 tablespoons (or to taste) Smuckers Butterscotch Topping
1 teaspoon Vanilla
2 teaspoons unsalted butter
Whipped Cream for Topping
Put all ingredients (excluding whipped cream) in a pot on the stove. Heat on medium-low while stirring until frothy. Serve with a generous helping of whipped cream. Drink after a long day of casting spells.
