    I think it's reminiscent of butterscotch. I think it would be great hot

    We skipped this last year as the queue was ridiculous.

    Kind of wish I hadn't now and waited!

    Basically it's cream soda with a butterscotch flavored foam on top. It comes in 2 kinds...regular and frozen (like a slurpee). We liked the regular better.

    I found a recipe for hot butterbeer and served it at Jordan's Halloween party last year. It's yummy. Uses hot apple cider instead of cream soda, but it's sooo good. Pretty easy to make too.

    Figment described it perfectly. It's very similar to cream soda, but I don't think it's exact. But really, that butterscotchy foam is the best part. My entire mouth just filled with saliva thinking about it...

    September needs to hurry up!

    I am looking for the one I used...we thought it was really good. Unfortunately, I had it saved on my laptop which has since died. :unsure: I am trying to find it for you for exact measurements.

    Basically, you take a carton of vanilla ice cream and let is soften, you beat in a stick of real butter and add brown sugar and butterscotch flavor. You then refreeze it until solid.

    To serve cold, put a scoop of the ice cream mixture in a glass and add cream soda.

    To serve hot, put a scoop of the ice cream mixture in a mug and add hot apple cider. We served it hot and all of Jordan's friends loved it.

    This isn't it exactly, but it's the closest I could find.

    1 pint real vanilla ice cream (use a brand that includes vanilla seed specks for best flavor or make your own)
    1/4 cup real butter, at room temperature
    1/2 teaspoon butterscotch extract
    1/4 cup brown sugar
    1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
    1/2 teaspoon freshly grated nutmeg
    1 quart apple cider
    Apple slices for garnish, optional

    Preparation:
    On medium speed, beat together vanilla ice cream, butter, butterscotch extract, brown sugar, cinnamon, and nutmeg until well-combined. Pour into a container and re-freeze.

    When ready to serve, gently heat apple cider in a saucepan until steaming hot.

    Place 1 scoop of ice cream in a thick soda glass or large mug. Top with steaming apple cider. Garnish with apple slices, if desired.

    Or use 1 scoop of the ice cream and add chilled cream soda.
    Yield: 4 to 6 servings

    Wow. Wow.

    Thank you so much for the recipe, Michelle! You are such a sweet woman. :yes:

    I think the boy might like that, especially in the Autumn. :yes: Might be fun for Halloween.

    That's when we served ours...at Jordan's Halloween party. Make sure you do up the ice cream the day before so it has time to refreeze. We put the apple cider in a crockpot to keep it warm.:yes:

    Can't find any butterscotch extract in our local supermarket so I'm going to have to shop around.

    Having not tried the original iit'll be interesting to see how it compares when we go next year.

    Not sure whether I like the sound of this or not. Guess we'll get one between us first of all. :unsure:

    I thought it was too sweet. My friend absolutely loved it! I liked the pumpkin juice in the bottle better

    I had a hard time finding it, too...finally found it with the candy making supplies in a tiny little bottle. Never did find it with the normal baking supplies.


    ugghh...we thought the pumpkin juice was horrid!:sorry:
