Did you know there is more than one way to enjoy a frothy mug of Butterbeer at Universal Orlando? The popular drink that tastes like shortbread and butterscotch comes in all different temperatures and textures. Some aren’t even drinks! If you want to taste the Harry Potter drink in all different ways here are the six ways to enjoy Butterbeer at Universal Orlando:

Cold Butterbeer - The original Butterbeer is served cold, almost like a soda. This is still one of the more popular ways to enjoy the flavors, especially on those hot summer days. Cold Butterbeer has a nice froth at the top, perfect for making a Butterbeer mustache. You can find the cold version in Diagon Alley at the Leaky Cauldron, The Hopping Pot and The Fountain of Fair Fortune and in Hogsmeade at Three Broomsticks, Hog’s Head Pub and Butterbeer carts.

Frozen Butterbeer - If you want your Butterbeer even colder than cold, try the frozen version. The fan-favorite is the only Butterbeer beverage served with a straw, which makes it all the more fun to drink. Frozen Butterbeer is also available at the Leaky Cauldron, The Hopping Pot and The Fountain of Fair Fortune in Diagon Alley as well as Three Broomsticks, Hog’s Head Pub and Butterbeer carts in Hogsmeade.

Hot Butterbeer - When the weather gets cooler grab a mug of the warm Butterbeer. The seasonal drink will warm your insides and remind you of the cold winter days in Hogsmeade. The Hot Butterbeer is only available during the winter season. You can find it at The Leaky Cauldron in Diagon Alley and Three Broomsticks in Hogsmeade.

Butterbeer Potted Cream - While traditionally a drink, Universal has expanded its Butterbeer offerings to include Potted Cream. The traditional British treat comes with an added Harry Potter twist that includes a smooth and creamy texture. You can enjoy the Butterbeer Potted Cream at the Leaky Cauldron in Diagon Alley and Three Broomsticks in Hogsmeade.

Butterbeer Fudge - Fudge fans will love sinking their teeth into the Butterbeer fudge. This sweet treat has two layers that taste exactly like the popular drink but with the gooeyness of fudge.

Butterbeer ice cream - What do you get when you combine Butterbeer with ice cream? The best dessert ever! The Butterbeer soft-serve tastes like vanilla and butterscotch swirled together. This treat is served in multiple locations around The Wizarding World including Florean Fortescue’s Ice-Cream Parlor, The Fountain of Fair Fortune and The Hopping Pot in Diagon Alley and Three Broomsticks in Hogsmeade.
