Cold Butterbeer™

Whether you're a Muggle™ or a wizard, this is the classic way to enjoy Butterbeer™. It's like drinking a creme soda with butterscotch flavor. It's topped with a thick cream that completes the full experience. You can purchase this either in the standard plastic cup or in a collectible mug.

Hot Butterbeer™

True fans of the series will probably agree that Butterbeer™ served hot is the most authentic way to enjoy this beverage. The drink is served in either a paper cup or in a collectible plastic mug. It's like drinking a butterscotch flavored hot chocolate. There is also a thick, flavored foam that tops off this drink.

Frozen Butterbeer™

This is a slushy version of the cold Butterbeer™ that is unique to Universal's theme parks. The butterscotch cream blends into the drink as it melts, almost turning it into a Butterbeer™ shake — perfect for warmer days in Orlando. This drink can also be purchased in a collectible mug.

Butterbeer™ Ice Cream

Butterbeer-flavored ice cream came with the introduction of Diagon Alley™ in 2014. In addition to Butterbeer™, there are a variety of ice cream flavors served at Florean Fortescue's Ice-Cream Parlour, available in cups, waffle cones and plastic souvenir sundae glasses. True fans can also pick up a bottle of the famous Pumpkin Juice to wash it all down.

So, there you have it. We hope this will get you excited about your visit to The Wizarding World of Harry Potter™ at Universal Orlando Resort. And be sure to tell us which type of Butterbeer™ is your favorite!
