"This is a slightly different take on the Harry Potter-style Butterbeer recipes you find out there. It is not as cloyingly sweet as most, has no milk or alcohol, and can be very addictive, according to my son."

  1. Place the ginger ale in a 2-cup microwave-safe measuring cup, and microwave on high until the soda is hot but not boiling, 1 to 2 minutes. Gently stir in the butter to melt, then stir in the brown sugar and cinnamon. Don't stir too vigorously to avoid the soda fizzing up. Pour the drink into mugs, and serve.

I didn't care for it. I may have done something wrong.

Not much better then drinking the ginger ale warm....

For a house with 3 kids who all adore Harry Potter, this is a spectacular go-to recipe for a fun night in. Perhaps the best part for our kids is the way the ginger ale foams up when adding the ...

I don't like ginger ale but had some in the house I didn't want to toss. I made this. I liked it

Very simple and delicious. I plan on using it in a cooking lesson for my special ed classroom. Thank you!
