Recipe of the Day {Frozen Butterbeer!}

Yes, I'll admit it... I'm a HUGE Harry Potter fan.  I have read all of the books, I own all of the movies that are out on DVD/Blu-Ray, and I seriously can't wait for Deathly Hallows Part 2 to come out on July 15th.  If I didn't have a baby at home, I'd go to the midnight showing on opening night.  Actually, I might just ask Daddy to stay home so I CAN go to the midnight show.  I'm 31 and I'm obsessed like a 12 year old.  Nice.


In preparation for this momentous occasion, my cousin Corri, who is similarly obsessed, found this recipe for our pre-film party on the Cook Like a Champion Blog.  Now I just need a recipe for Treacle Tarts and Pumpkin Pasties... 

Frozen Butterbeer
Ingredients: 
For the butterbeer:
1 1/2 cups cream soda
6 tablespoons butterscotch schnapps
2 cups ice

For the foamy topping:
6 tablespoons heavy cream
1 tablespoon butterscotch schnapps

Directions:
Combine cream soda, schnapps and ice in a blender. Blend until slushy. Pour into a glass or mug. In a small bowl, combine heavy cream and schnapps. Using an electric mixer, whisk together until almost whipped. You want the cream mixture to be slightly loose, not as firm as whipped cream. Top the butterbeer with the foamy topping and serve immediately.
Serves 2
