Butterbeer, Inspired by Harry Potter

10 whole allspice
1 tablespoon (15ml) melted butter (optional, for hot version only)
1 tablespoon (14g) imitation butter

-Add the butter flavoring, melted butter (hot version only), vanilla extract and sugar and stir into the hot beer.
-Pour into serving glasses and stir in the condensed milk (if using) to your taste preferences.
-If you’re serving the Butterbeer chilled, refrigerate the liquid until cold and then pour into a serving cup. You may need to shake it up before pouring if you added condensed milk. Add your desired amount of soda water to your serving cup and stir.
-Top with whipped cream, if you like, and cinnamon sticks!
"Drawing inspiration from movies, video games and television shows, more than 60 recipes full of fantasy and science fiction are featured throughout the new cookbook. Lemon cakes - and bowls of brown if you're, um, into that - allow you to eat your feelings after that Game of Thrones season five finale, while other fictional food formulas, including 1UP mushroom cupcakes (Super Mario Cart), Romulan Ale (Star Trek), bacon pancakes (Adventure Time) Moloko Plus (A Clockwork Orange) and lembas (The Lord of the Rings), transport your taste buds into another world." - Creative Loafing
About the Author
The first fictional food recipe Cassandra Reeder made was Tree Star Cookies inspired by The Land Before Time at age six. Her geeky nature combined with her love of cooking led to the creation of geekychef.com. The goal of Geeky Chef is to help the geek community bring their food fantasies to reality. So if you've ever found yourself drooling over Pumpkin Pasties in Harry Potter, curious about Lembas Bread from Lord of the Rings or wondering if the cake is really a lie, this blog is for you. Each dish is thoroughly researched to make the final product taste and/or look as close to the source material as possible. Of course, everyone will imagine differently, but Cassandra hopes to give dedicated geeks a run for their tastebuds.
Cassandra currently lives in Portland with her fiance and pet parrot. Despite what conclusions you may have come to, she is not actually a pirate. Well, she is mostly not actually a pirate.

The recipes were easy to follow and the ones I've tried so far were delicious. The author definitely seems to have put some thought into recreating these foods as close to what might have been intended as possible while still making them accessible enough that anyone could enjoy them. Say Butterbeer three times and drink up!
I am very pleased with this purchase and appreciate the humorous recipe introductions. It's a fun book that puts a smile on my face when I pick it up.
This book is easy to follow, and there's something to be said for cook books, as opposed to online sites. Sometimes, it's wonderful to have a book. Being a tactile person, I like to hold my books.
I highly recommend this book for fellow Geeks, or those that have Geeks in their lives.
