How to Order Butterbeer at Starbucks

It's not on the menu, but customers can give baristas a special recipe that will produce a drink similar to the beverage enjoyed by the fictional witches and wizards from the Harry Potter books.

It's not quite the same as grabbing a seat on the Hogwarts Express, but muggles everywhere can get a little taste of the magical world of Harry Potter by ordering a butterbeer during their next trip to Starbucks.

One little hiccup, however, is that the drink isn't actually on the menu. Instead, customers can give the baristas the recipe, and they will whip one up.

Here's what you should ask for, according to dalebacar.com:
  • A Creme Frappuccino base. Whole milk is required for the right consistency.
  • Add 3 pumps of caramel syrup.
  • Add 3 pumps of toffee nut syrup.
  • Top with caramel drizzle
The drink is available only during the holidays because one of the ingredients, toffee nut syrup, is a seasonal offering. The made-to-order butterbeer is not officially licensed by the Harry Potter franchise.

Starbucks is located at the following places near Upper Dublin:
  • 1401 Virginia Drive, Dresher
  • 655 Welsh Road, Maple Glen
