Butterbeer is the signature beverage at the Wizarding World of Harry Potter at Universal Orlando. It can be found in both Hogsmeade at Islands of Adventure theme park and Diagon Alley at Universal Studios theme park. With its distinct sweet taste, think of Butterbeer as a cross between a sugar cookie and cream soda. Butterbeer can be purchased frozen, cold or hot and over at Diagon Alley, there is also Butterbeer ice cream! Yum! Tip: If you’re looking for a less sweet version of Butterbeer, go with the cold instead of the frozen. Also, hot Butterbeer makes a great breakfast beverage if you’ve booked a Harry Potter Package!
Butterbeer ice cream is only served at Florean Fortescue’s Ice Cream Parlour at Diagon Alley in the Universal Studios theme park. It is also soft-serve ice cream as opposed to the other flavors which are all hard-serve ice cream. Tip: Be sure to stop here multiple times during your trip as they serve other unique Harry Potter inspired flavors such as earl grey and lavender, chocolate chili and clotted cream.
