Universal Orlando Resort announced that the one-millionth Butterbeer was sold today at The Wizarding World Of Harry Potter, the Harry Potter-themed area of Universal’s Islands Of Adventure theme park.
In honor of this event, 1,000 complimentary mugs of Butterbeer were handed out to guests at the Florida theme park today.
Butterbeer is the frothy beverage imbibed by the young wizards in the Harry Potter series. The Butterbeer sold at The Wizarding World Of Harry Potter is a sweet-tasting non-alcoholic version created from a “secret recipe” approved by Harry Potter creator J.K. Rowling. The taste is said to be like shortbread and butterscotch, and the drink, which is sold at four locations within Wizarding World, is served cold or frozen.
I haven’t been to The Wizarding World Of Harry Potter, so I’ve yet to taste Butterbeer. But I’ll be visiting there in just over a week, where I’ll definitely be grabbing a mug, so I’ll let you know how it is then!
