It’s painful enough sometimes being a regular Harry Potter fan, but being a foodie Harry Potter fan? Someone just obliviate me now.

After all, Sugar Quills, Fizzing Whizbees, Gillywater, jumping Chocolate Frogs? All things we in our awful Muggle lives will never get to taste in real life. Don’t even get us started on Butterbeer.


Luckily, it doesn’t take much wizardry to cook up something pretty Butterbeer-esque at Starbucks. You can find this easy custom drink hack trending all over the interwebs, just a regular Crème Frappuccino plus three pumps of caramel syrup, three pumps of toffee nut syrup, and a caramel drizzle on top.


It’s not an official drink of course, so when I went to try it this morning, mine arrived on the counter with tragically little fanfare (was kind of hoping it’d be delivered by a house elf). I also opted for no caramel drizzle because diabeetus. Still, the drink itself was pretty magical and a great festive fall alternative to all the Pumpkin Spice around.


Some Starbucks have even seen enough requests for the drink to make it one of their regular features. So what say ye, all ye fellow Potternerds out there? Best Starbucks hack ever, or best Starbucks hack ever?
