I was browsing through websites looking for recipes, and I came upon this one--can't wait to try making it for myself! It's from Fox News.
Start to finish: 1 hour (10 minutes active)
Servings: 4

1 cup light or dark brown sugar
2 tablespoons water
6 tablespoon butter
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon cider vinegar
3/4 cup heavy cream, divided
1/2 teaspoon rum extract
Four 12-ounce bottles cream soda

In a small saucepan over medium, combine the brown sugar and water. Bring to a gentle boil and cook, stirring often, until the mixture reads 240 F on a candy thermometer.

Stir in the butter, salt, vinegar and 1/4 heavy cream. Set aside to cool to room temperature.

Once the mixture has cooled, stir in the rum extract.

In a medium bowl, combine 2 tablespoons of the brown sugar mixture and the remaining 1/2 cup of heavy cream. Use an electric mixer to beat until just thickened, but not completely whipped, about 2 to 3 minutes.

To serve, divide the brown sugar mixture between 4 tall glasses (about 1/4 cup for each glass). Add 1/4 cup of cream soda to each glass, then stir to combine. Fill each glass nearly to the top with additional cream soda, then spoon the whipped topping over each.

Can this be used with margarine or another substitute for butter?

This one was horrid compared to the Butterbeer at Universal. UGH!

I have made this twice now and it gets better everytime! Another comment below or above mine says it wasn't as good as the one in universal. I have had the one in universal. This one, if made right, which I have, it taste identical to the one there but even fresher because it is homemade! So try it.

The butterbeer was delicious! Although next time I would make it little bit less sweet.
