4. Boozy Butterbeer Recipe from Vintage Kitty
Had to add this one into the mix, especially after my time in Florida. While working in Orlando, even though I worked for Disney, the obsession with Butterbeer is crazy! I did finally try my ver yfirst Butterbeer during my first official day trip to Universal and I had mixed thoughts. I tried the Frozen one and I thought it was extremely good but it was a little too sweet to be able to finish the entire thing (and that says a lot coming from a girl who will add flavoring and additional Splenda to her coffee every morning). So maybe adding a little booze too it might tone down that overwhelming butterscotch taste? Well lets find out! For the full recipe, check out Vintage Kitty’s site as well as her inspiration from a day in Universal here!
