Prior to starting the recipe, chill (in the freezer) the serving glasses, pitcher, and large mixing bowl for 30 minutes.
In the large pitcher, combine the A&W cream soda, caramel extract, and butter extract. Gently stir with a large spoon.
In the chilled large mixing bowl, add the heavy whipping cream, vanilla extract, and butter extract. Beat together for 30 seconds. Add the powdered sugar and continue to beat until stiff peaks form.
Immediately add the butterscotch topping and fold together with a rubber spatula until no streaks remain.
Fill chilled glasses with the cream soda mixture. Top with the butter cream topping.
Serve and enjoy!
It is really important to add the mixing bowl in particular to the fridge before you make the recipe. If you don’t do this, then it can be hard to get the cream to form the stiff peaks that are needed to stop it from sinking into the drink if it is at room temperature.
If you use straws to drink the Harry Potter butterbeer, make sure you don’t fill the drink right to the top. That’s because when you push the straw in, the level of the drink will rise a bit. If it is filled right to the top, it will spill over and make a mess. Plus, you’ll waste some of the tasty goodness of this sweet drink!
