Before HellthyJunkFood Julia Goolia and I went to Harry Potter Land at Universal and tried their Butterbeer, which Julia was disappointed by the fact that this child friendly themed beverage was void of any actual beer.  So we caught wind of a Facebook video recipe and decided to try and break it down  ourselves.  Julia still wants to try her recipe which consists of a stick of butter and a can of beer.
