Pretending We’re Not Muggles

I swear by this recipe. Trust me, it’s worth the bother of acquiring butter flavour. It’s even vegan!


  • 1 cup water
  • 1/2 cup white sugar
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 5 teaspoons butter flavour
  • beer, rum and club soda, or just club soda


  1. Add first four ingredients to a small saucepan on medium heat and stir until the sugars dissolve. Reduce to medium-low and stir occasionally until it comes to a boil.
  2. Take off the heat and allow to cool to room temperature. Add vanilla and butter flavour and mix.
  3. Pour syrup into the bottom of a glass, then top up the glass with beer, or a shot of rum and club soda, or just club soda for a virgin drink. I usually use 2-3 tablespoons of syrup to 1 cup of beer or club soda.
  4. Store the remaining syrup in a bottle in the fridge. It’s a thin syrup so it won’t get too viscous in the cold.

Makes enough syrup for 5-8 glasses of butterbeer.
