I’ve been dreaming about butterybeer for years, and tonight seemed like the perfect night to share a celebratory butterybeer before hitting the movie theater for a super-special movie release.

Good thing PETA staffer Ashley whipped up a hot AND cold version of the infamous butterybeer, and sent her recipe over to peta2 to share with ya’ll. Looks amazing right?

6 oz. apple juice or cider
2 dashes cinnamon
1 dash nutmeg
1 pinch ginger
1 tsp. imitation butter

  • Warm the apple juice or cider over medium heat for approximately 5 minutes, stirring constantly. Do not boil.
  • Add the cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, and imitation butter.
