Maybe you can’t make it to Hogsmeade this weekend because you really need to study for those pesky OWLs. Or maybe you have to look after Dobby, because that wily house elf has been causing endless amounts of trouble around the neighborhood (again). Nevertheless, your soul is likely hankering for a mug of that tasty-as-heck Butterbeer, and you absolutely need to get out of the gosh darn house. The solution? Take your OWL study guides to Starbucks and bring Dobby along — because Starbucks’ Butterbeer Frappuccino sounds too magical to pass up.
Ordering a Butterbeer Frappuccino off Starbucks’ secret menu is easy as flying (with absolutely no wand necessary). According to The Independent, you should ask your Starbucks barista for for a Grande Creme Frappuccino, blended with three pumps of caramel syrup and three pumps of their (freaking marvelous) toffee nut syrup. For some extraordinary pizzaz, make sure to request an additional pump of cinnamon dolce syrup, along with a sprinkle of cinnamon on top.
If you’ve just finished a breezy game of Quidditch, and if you’re a little more in the mood for a relaxing warm mug of Butterbeer, The Independent recommends ordering a Butterbeer latte, instead. For the Butterbeer latte, Potterheads are strongly advised to order a whole milk steamer, complete with two shots of espresso, two shots of caramel syrup, three shots of toffee nut syrup, and finally, three shots of cinnamon dolce syrup. They also recommend asking for a dollop of whipped cream and caramel crumbs on top to complete the magical beverage. So don’t be a muggle, and definitely go all out, because Starbucks’ Butterbeer drinks are a totally worth it.
