Guzzle Warm Butterbeer in the Florida Sunshine

$4.99 buys you a mug of the hot, butterscotch-flavored drink based on the beverage found in the Harry Potter series.


Potterheads, rejoice: You can now spend the Winter drinking a warm version of Butterbeer in sunny Florida. According to the Orlando Sentinel, Universal Studios is once again selling a warm version of the drink made popular by the Harry Potter series. Typically, Butterbeer is served over ice, or in a "frozen, slushy form."

A warm version of Butterbeer — which has a butterscotch flavor and comes with whipped topping — was first served this past January. There have been other variations of Butterbeer: Over the summer, the theme park debuted a Butterbeer ice cream at the recently opened Wizarding World of Harry Potter: Diagon Alley at Universal Studios.

A rep for the studios tells the paper that the warm Butterbeer will now be a permanent fixture on menus — even in the blazing heat of Summer — and that a cup retails for $4.99.
