Butterbeer appears as a favorite drink inside the Harry Potter books and films and is only available inside The Wizarding World of Harry Potter. It is a nonalcoholic, frothy drink reminiscent of shortbread and butterscotch and is served cold or frozen.

The top secret beverage has been the talk of the town since it made its debut on June 18, 2010. Bloggers and fans have speculated on the secret ingredients that is a closely guarded recipe. Universal claims they've implemented special security procedures to protect the details.

Butterbeer quickly became a guest favorite. To help meet the strong demand, the park added a fourth Butterbeer location within The Wizarding World of Harry Potter.

"You can see the excitement on our guests' faces as they wait in line – and then the smile that comes with their first sip," said Ric Florell, General Manager and Senior Vice President of Resort Revenue Operations for Universal Orlando. "Butterbeer is not just a beverage. It's an experience."
