Ideally I'd like it to be something that 10 8yr old boys can make themselves with supervision. I reckon a bottle of cream soda and maybe float some ice cream in it. But not sure how to get the butter scotchy taste?
Ebearhug, I had googled, was hoping for a recipe someone had tried. That website uses butter extract which i think is an American thing, I've never seen it here. Butterscotch syrup good idea Remus - kind of like the stuff they use in Costa?
we went to the film studio tour last holiday and the "butterbeer" they sell there was weird!
I'd say get some Lyle's golden syrup, icecream caramel squirty sauce, or Monin brand caramel coffee syrup (think they sell it in naice supermarkets), and then whisk it with the squirty cream and vanilla icecream into the cream soda in a big bowl. Apparently the "secret ingredient" in the real butterbeer is pumpkin juice but I have no idea where you'd get that at this time of year!!
