Vote of the Week: Warm Butterbeer at Universal Orlando?
Written by Robert Niles
Universal Orlando this morning announced that it is serving warm Butterbeer to selected guests.Tweet
Warm Butterbeer? Let's go to the meme:
Warm Butterbeer might be more authentic to the United Kingdom, as many popular English and Irish beers are served warm, or, at least, room temperature. But the weather in Orlando more often than not calls for cold, even frozen, drinks.
We've not yet heard from anyone fortunate to try one of the warm Butterbeer samples this morning. (If you did, we'd love a photo and your thoughts, via firstname.lastname@example.org!) While we await feedback, let's put this new idea to a vote:
Update: Theme Park Insider reader Rob T. sent along some photos of the warm butterbeer.
"We're at USF's Harry Potter Celebration and had a chance to sample the warm Butterbeer this morning. While the topping is identical to the cold versions, the liquid is a milky color with a creamy consistency like hot chocolate. It has a very strong and sweet butterscotch flavor similar to the cold versions. Verdict: yummy if you really like sweet drinks."
"The warm butterbeer is only available to those with breakfast reservations at the Three Broomsticks this weekend."
So there you go. Perhaps this will make its way on to the regular menu at Universal, maybe as a seasonal item. Thank you to Rob for the report!
