30 Days of Harry Potter - day 28: Favorite magical treats

I would like to go to The Wizarding World of Harry Potter mainly to taste all the wizarding treats that I've only been able to imagine. And I would most like to taste the butterbeer!

Hermione may also be a house-elf.
My friend Molly had a housewarming party that coincided with the opening weekend of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Part 1. We are both big Harry Potter fans, so I made pumpkin pasties and brought Witches' Brew and the makings of homemade butterbeer. The butterbeer recipe I found online used cream soda and a butterscotch flavor. It mentioned that the recommended butterscotch schnapps is actually less alcoholic than butterscotch extract, so I used that. I topped my butterbeer with a healthy¹ spray of whipped cream. Once I finished my first butterbeer, the foam from the cream soda and the whipped cream had made a thick head that was left over in the cup, so I poured myself another one to try to mix that creamy stuff in. After the second one, the creamy leftover stuff had only increased, so somehow a third one seemed necessary. And so on and so on.

According to Harry Potter canon, it would seem that only house-elves can get drunk on butterbeer. Guess that makes me a house-elf!

¹ Not healthy.
