I had an iced butterbeer yesterday (yes, like in Harry Potter. You know you want to try it) at a restaurant and it was AMAZING. It was refreshing and effervescent, and creamy, but not too sweet. Now I want to recreate it, but I only have the menu description to go on... Hard cider, mulled wine, butterscotch, topped with whipped cream (I know, sounds delicious, doesn't it?). I think I can figure out whatt to use for the rest of the components, but I have no clue what kind of butterscotch to put in it. Does anyone know of a good butterscotch syrup for drinks? I don't think it was a liquer, but i wouldn't rule it out...
Someone I follow posted this butterbeer recipe:
I cannot imagine adding butterscotch to cream soda (and I roll on the sweet side of the street!), but your list of ingredients above sounds fab!
On the alcoholic side of butterscotch, there's Buttershots...which also tastes good in a shot one of my buddies used to make that tasted like an oatmeal cookie:
And Tuaca is nice in hot mulled cider, so it might work in your own butterbeer recipe, too.
ETA: That wasn't meant as a dig, DreamCyn. I was speaking of the butterbeer recipe I posted. I'm just not a big cream soda fan and can't imagine sweetening it up further. ;)
That was a looong time ago, but I just saw that and, no offense taken :)
I actually found that adding the super sweet butterschnapps to the carbonated soda kept the sweetness at a relatively normal level. I usually avoid actually adding the whipped cream (or ice cream, which i've seen) It was just the recipe I saw first.
