  1. In a small mixing bowl, mix together the whipped cream, butterscotch topping, melted butter, butter extract, and caramel extract.

  2. Add 1 tablespoon of the whipped cream mixture into the bottom of your mug.*

  3. Then pour in 1/2 cup of the cream soda and stir.

  4. Add another tablespoon of the whipped cream on top and stir. 

  5. The mixture will fizz up and the whipped cream will expand, creating a fizzy top that'll give you a butterbeer mustache when you drink it.

Recipe Notes

*These instructions are for a smaller mug. If you're mixing up a taller, larger mug like I show in the pictures, you'll want to double the amounts I give.

Looking for a festive Harry Potter mug? Some of my favorites are this Magical Marauder's Map Mug, this Hedwig Mug, this Morphing Book Cover Mug, this Espresso Patronum Mug, and this Butterbeer Mug.
