Universal Orlando Celebrates Five Millionth Butterbeer Served

On Wednesday, December 12, 2012, Universal Orlando celebrated the five-millionth serving of Butterbeer to its guests.

The incredibly popular beverage is sold within The Wizarding World of Harry Potter, since it comes from the HP books. It was first served to guests in June 2010.

The recipe for the non-alcoholic drink is a closely held secret – but the taste is reminiscent of shortbread and butterscotch and the beverage is served cold or frozen.

To mark the moment, Universal Orlando gave away one thousand Butterbeers to guests, including these young fans who sported “Butterbeer mustaches” after taking a sip.
