[expandsub5 title=”How did they go about deciding the recipe to serve at Wizarding World?”] The Vice President and Corporate Executive Chef for Universal Parks & Resorts and his team worked for nearly three years to come up with a recipe for this brew. They even made a trip to Scotland to meet with Harry Potter’s author to discuss it. Since it was going to be served in a theme park, there could be no alcohol and no butteror dairy products of any kind (for those lactose intolerant) in the Butterbeer. Rowling insisted the brew be made with real sugar. It took 15 to 16 tries before the team finally got something that resembled what they were after. The top five were brought to the UK where J.K. Rowling personally tested them finally picking one from the group.[/expandsub5]
