One of many recipes for this magical drink from the world of Harry Potter. This is purpoted to be the closest to that served at The Wizarding World of Harry Potter theme park in Orlando.
"Ever since my first trip to Universal I've been searching for the recipe for that magical concoction know as Butterbeer. This is the closest to the original I've found. Note that you really should have the cream soda COLD!! Also I added 1/4 tsp. butter flavoring to the topping. It is a bit sweet, but still the best I've been able to create at home. Kudos to whoever came up with this. Its great!"- malsburyj

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.
