So this morning, after reading the article by Dale Bacar here, my blockmate and now officemate, Hannah, and I headed over to the nearest Starbucks branch in our area (which is in Crescent Park, Bonifacio Global City) to try this very intriguing Butterbeer recipe.
- Creme Frappuccino base with whole milk
- 3 pumps of Caramel syrup
- 3 pumps of Toffee Nut syrup
- Top with Caramel Drizzle
Harry Potter’s Butterbeer at Starbucks Philippines
We’ve always been huge Potterheads and Dramione shippers, so imagine our excitement when we read the article!
We added a twist to our drinks—to make it taste a little more “Irish,” as suggested by another blockmate, Alvin. All you have to do is request the barista to include a pump of Irish creme. Apparently, this recipe belongs to a more secret-ish menu of Starbucks around the world but baristas here in the Philippines aren’t as aware yet.
I’ve never actually tried the Butterbeer from Harry Potter World but my good friend, Yelle, described it as like a “caramel vanilla slushie.” My first sip literally made me feel giddy! It’s really sweet! I closed my eyes and imagined drinking it from a mug, and for a while I felt like I was in Three Broomsticks.
Thanks to Dale Bacar, we can now have a taste of the Butterbeer goodness for only Php 170 this Christmas season! Hooray!
