Hot autumn, winter beverage; inspired by J.K. Rowling’s Wizarding World’s Butter Beer, but for the Muggles it’s a Caramel Latte! This heavenly beverage will warm your heart, body and soul and brings a little magic to your life!
The autumn is officially here! We woke up to a rainy, foggy and cold morning, everything is gray outside. So since it’s Sunday, I decided this day is gonna be a lazy, cozy stay-in-bed day. All I needed is popcorn, a movie (it’s gonna be Strange Magic) and something absolutely comforting, soul warming drink and all I could think of is Butter Beer.
It’s my version of Butter Beer, so please save the “It’s not even a real Butter Beer recipe” comments, this is how I imagine the heavenly delicious and hot Butter Beer. I’ve been making this ever since I first saw the movie and my mother told us the Harry Potter stories (I wasn’t really a book-worm back then, so that’s why I wasn’t reading it…). We all sat around the family table in the kitchen, eating the dinner and drinking the Butter Beer, listening about Harry, about the death eaters, about the spells and all the adventures, about a magical, wizarding world. Drinking a beverage from the book made it more magical, so that’s why this recipe is close to my heart.
All in all, this is not the original Butter Beer recipe, but this is the real recipe for me, that brings back the magic from my childhood, that still warms my whole heart, body and soul! I hope you’ll like it!
- 5 cups hot milk
- 20 dkg sugar
- 3 tbsp coconut oil
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- 0.5 tsp turmeric
- Heat the milk.
- Add the coconut oil, the sugar to a large pan and start to caramelize it. When it turns golden, add the cinnamon and the turmeric.
- Caution! This step can be dangerous, please be very careful!
- So now pour a little milk onto the caramel, it'll bubble up, please watch out and don't burn yourself! Stir it and until the large bubbles turns into a foam, then add the rest of the milk.
- Stir it for a few more minutes, then serve it hot!
The turmeric gives it a lovely color, the cinnamon spice the whole drink and the caramel makes it so warming and magical (at least it does for me.)!
