Every potterhead has atleast once in their life wanted to find out what it was about the Butterbeer that made Harry, Ron and Hermione go back to Hogsmeade every chance they got. I, myself, couldn't contain my curiosity and wanted to taste the deliciously described drink. Although the internet is full of Butterbeer recipes, I found one that turned out to be absolutely heavenly, and surprisingly really easy to prepare- once you have all the ingredients.
