Butterbeer in the Harry Potter universe is non-alcoholic (though drinking too much will get a house elf drunk), so this version can be drunk by children or adults.



  • 13 oz Ginger Beer
  • 1/4 tsp Nutmeg (Ground)
  • 1 pinch Cloves, Ground
  • 2 large egg yolk
  • 1 tsp Caster Sugar
  • 3/4 oz unsalted butter


1 Pour the ginger beer into a small saucepan, and add the nutmeg and cloves. Bring to a simmer.
2 Whisk the egg yolks and sugar together, and slowly pour the ginger beer over it. Pour back into the saucepan and whisk for a couple of minutes until thickened.
3 Turn off the heat, add the butter, and whisk vigorously until frothy. Serve immediately.
