    warm 1 can of cream soda in the microwave
    in another dish melt two tablespoons of butter (salted)
    get one tablespoon of honey
    mix the butter into the cream soda with the honey covered spoon

    Well I think it is VERY slightly because Winky manages to get smashed on it. But it's certainly not in the same league as Firewhiskey.

    Yeah, why would it be called butterbeer if there's no alcohol in it? Hmm.

    Yeah, I think it is, but only really mildly. They sell it to Hogwarts students in Hogsmeade (do they have drinking laws in the wizarding world?), and remember when Winky starts drinking six bottles a day or something? And Dobby says that it's strong for a house elf, if not a human.

    I have always wondered, but I assumed that it was non-alcoholic, but then those crazy wizards come of age at 17! Who knows what their laws are on alcohol?

    i would imagine you could put a little rum or brandy in it to make it alcoholic...

    One of the books (possibly HBP) mentions something about "under the influence of Butterbeer", so I think it has some alcohol. You can't go putting butter in beer, that's just gross.

    I always assumed it would be really milky and taste like a butterscotch milkshake? Like maybe a buterscotch Angel Delight but with more milk so it didn't set. I als thought it would be frothy too! Hmmmm never really thought much about the butter side, and i don't know why I imagine it to be milky either
