There is less % of alcohol in schnaaps than in buterscotch extract. That is why we went with the schnaps, we didn't want that much alcohol in it.

For the bookmark I used size 5 of DMC Pearl Cotton.  It's usually next to the embroidery floss but comes in little hanks.  It was extremely slippery at first but after awhile I got used to it. 

The butterbeer recipe I sent does not have cream soda or root beer in it.  I first tried it at the book 6 party went to.  It's chocolaty; for some reason I remember butterbeer being mentioned as being chocolaty but am unable to find a reference, if anyone else can find it I'm interested in the page number (it'll settle a dispute with a close friend Wink)

I got my recipe off this site :  http://www.britta.com/hogwarts/

That site is awesome for Potter Parties Smiley

Anyways... for my try of this butterbeer recipe, I couldn't get my hands on a liter of cream soda (stupid Wal-Mart Neighborhood Market!) only IBC Cream Soda in glass bottles. I took a swig of the soda so that there was nothing in the neck and then measured about a shot of the schnapps and poured that in and let it mix. I thought it was pretty good... more than a shot though doesn't increase the butterscotch flavour, just the alcohol flavour.

BTW... I heard somewhere that soda won't fizz up and lose its carbonation when the soda and whatever you are mixing it with are the same temperature. I dunno how or why this works but Ii kept my schnapps and soda in the fridge and they didn't fizz when I mixed them.  Wink

And on a side note... Everyone's items look AWESOME !!! I definitely thin this is going to be the best swap gallery yet!

My swaps came today from Aliciasjoy! I have been checking the mail for days and I was so excited to get the package! Herimoine is my favorite , so everything has a Herimione flair to it!
She sent: a beautiful blue/green/purple hat ( like the ones Hermionie makes for the house elves!)
a fabulous gryffindor drawstring bag with homemade runes (!!)
a "packet" of parchment and quills from Flourish and Blotts
Rita Skeeter in her jar ( it looks like her too with the eyeglasses and it's a magnet!)
a needle book in Gryffindor colors!

I love it all so much! The bag and the hat are so professional looking! I'll post pictures as soon as I get them!

That Rita Skeeter in-a-jar sounds very creative Smiley

I've tried the non-alcoholic version listed above (rootbeer w/ butterscotch syrup and whipped cream), but I have to say the alcoholic version sounds excellent!!  I know what I'll be drinking this weekend...hehe...
