Accio Butterbeer

This week was an amazing week.  Case in point, Starbucks is now serving Butterbeer.  If you go to Starbucks, with the recipe in hand, they will make you a butterbeer. Now Starbucks aficionados may be saying, you can always go to Starbucks with a recipe and have them make your super special drink...

the woman who was ahead of me in line, he asked for a venti something or other, extra hot, no water, extra I haven't a clue as to what else, and I have no idea what they made for her.  I listened to the entire ordering process, and she could have been asking for coffee made of crushed up fairies, sprinkled with fairy dust for all I knew.  

Then I got to order my own complicated drink, thought up by the great minds of Starbucks, because tha was the only way that was ever going to happen.  If a coffee order requires more than one step, then I am not following.  In fact, wait a few minutes to chuckle at me ordering a large dark roast coffee.  

But this week, not once but twice, I was a coffee ordering champion.  Also butterbeer happens to be the most delicious drink ever made.  Yummo.  This is the recipe I brought with me. 

Butter beer-

Frappachino Base
three pumps of carmel syrup
three pumps of toffee nut syrup
three pumps of cinnamon dollce

(and for my second go around I got whipped cream and salted carmel bits)

While I am positive that drinking this drink with any regularity would result in an immediate case of type two diabetes, in moderation, this will always be my Starbucks staple. (being that I typically go there approximately once in a calendar quarter I should survive.) Thank you Starbucks and Harry Potter for making my week.

Love Always,
