Where to Get Butterbeer in the Muggle World

I lost interest in the Starbucks Christmas Drinks when a fellow Muggle told me that I can get Butterbeer from their Secret Menu. Jolly good I don’t have to apparate to The Three Broomsticks in Hogsmeade or at The Hog’s Head in Diagon Alley!

A non-pothead non-Potterhead won’t be able to really understand the reference. So for your benefit, Butterbeer is the beverage of choice of Harry Potter and friends. J.K. Rowling described this “a little bit like less-sickly butterscotch.”

It is also indicated in the book that it is mildly alcoholic. Wizards and non-wizards (muggles) can enjoy this is cold in bottles or  hot in “foaming tankards”. It is priced two sickles in the U.K. and you can get it for only 160php in Starbucks!

It is actually just Caramel Creme Frappuccino with toffee nut syrup and caramel drizzle. It’s part of the Starbucks Secret Menu which also includes Willy Wonka Frappuccino and Barbie Pink Frappuccino.

And no, you cannot get sloshed from drinking  Butterbeer. Unless you are a house elf.
