14 Drinks with Butterscotch Schnapps


When making cocktails, there seems to be a constant battle to hide the taste of the alcohol. However, making drinks with butterscotch schnapps means that you don’t have to! Butterscotch Schnapps is super tasty and is a little like salted caramel. As a result, you will definitely want to taste it in our 11 drinks made with butterscotch schnapps. Here’s our list…

Harry Potter Butter Beer


Hogwarts and Hufflepuff! These are all things you’ll be shouting after a few glasses of the harry potter butterbeer recipe. You definitely won’t find this on the menu at Harry Potter world. It is just a little bit grown up.

Contrary to popular belief, it doesn’t contain beer at all. Instead, the drink is made with a cream soda base, giving lots of creamy fizz. We add butterscotch schnapps and vanilla vodka before adding a little whipped cream to give it a foamy taste. Chances are you won’t manage more than one!

Poison Apple Martini

Mirror Mirror on the wall, what butterscotch schnapps drink is best of all? If your mirror is talking to you, then you’ve definitely had too much to drink. However, this might just be the answer. Perhaps the best thing about this slightly tart and sweet cocktail is the relatively small amount of ingredients. The drink’s base is green apple vodka, with just a hint of butterscotch schnapps added to take that cutting edge off.

The bright green color comes from the inclusion of grenadine, adding to the whole butterscotch poison apple martini effect.

Blind Russian 

If you’ve ever had a white Russian, you’ll know it is creamy and deceptively alcoholic. The blind Russian is even more so. It features a fair few spirits. You have been warned! Butterscotch schnapps doesn’t actually play a leading role in this drink, but it helps to really round out the other flavors.

Which are?

Oh, just baileys, chocolate syrup, Kahlua, and almond milk.

If you want to make it really luxurious, use single cream instead.

Bananas Foster Cocktail

We are always a fan of cocktails that are simple to make. When we tried this one, we were shocked at how amazing it tasted and how quick it was to prepare. You’ll need a cocktail shaker and crushed ice. However, ice cubes will work just as well.

We mix spiced rum, butterscotch schnapps, banana liqueur, and heavy cream together before giving it a shake. For a super smooth finish, whizz it up in a blender. Extra points were awarded for serving with a few slices of banana floating on top (you’ve got to get your five-a-day in somehow).

Milkshake Cocktail

Look, don’t let the huge list of ingredients put you off. As butterscotch schnapps drinks recipes go, this has to be one of the tastiest around! It’s like a cocktail and a sundae all rolled into one easy-to-drink glass. The good news is that many of the ingredients are optional.

The drink’s base is butterscotch schnapps combined with Kahlua, vanilla ice cream, and some salted caramel. Top with a small lump of vanilla ice cream and a nice sweet maraschino cherry for a really nice visual effect.

We never know whether to use a straw or a spoon when we serve this.

Candy Corn Martini

Popcorn is obviously a little buttery, sweet and salty. By using butterscotch schnapps, you can easily recreate this taste! It also uses whipped cream vodka, pineapple juice, and half and half to make a sweet, smooth, and very buttery drink in equal measure. 

Butterscotch Bliss

While some butterscotch cocktails have a weird name, this one is pretty much accurate. A sip of this, and you’ll be taken to butterscotch heaven. We would warn you about drinking too many of these, but butterscotch bliss is so rich that we reckon you’ll only be able to drink one as a maximum.

Why is it so rich?

Well, it’s made with cream and half and half, making it super opulent. The flavor comes from the inclusion of baileys and butterscotch schnapps. We also like to add a dash of Jägermeister, because… Why the hell not?

Be sure to coat the rim of the glass with sugar for the ultimate sweet presentation.

Butterscotch Schnapps Hot Cocoa

What could be nicer than lounging by an open fire with a mug of hot cocoa in your hand? Well, hows about mixing it with a little butterscotch schnapps as well? You could be a little boring and just add a shot of butterscotch, but why not make an effort and top this deliciously chocolaty drink with a large dollop of whipped cream and some chocolate sauce? 

If you want to throw a few marshmallows in there, go right ahead!

Slippery Nipple

This is the mid-90s calling, and they want their cocktails back! Once you have stopped giggling at the name, this butterscotch schnapps cocktail recipe is well worth checking out. It only requires two ingredients and is great for making party shots with minimal effort.

If you are smart with a spoon, you can make it look amazing. Start with half an oz of butterscotch schnapps and then drizzle a topping of baileys over the top. 

A couple of these, and you’ll be dancing in no time… to the Spice Girls.

Snowflake Punch

Snowflake punch is a sweet vanilla ice cream mixture mixed with cream soda and a little butterscotch schnapps. It is so-called because it is served as a long ice-cold drink. The best bit? It’s super simple to make. For extra presentation points, pop your serving glasses in the freezer an hour before serving to get a frosty effect.

Fuzzy Leprechaun

Remember we talked about weird cocktail names. Here’s one. The fuzzy leprechaun looks weird too! Bright green, it’s made with orange juice and food coloring. Traditionally people tend to use peach schnapps, but you could also give butterscotch schnapps a go!

Butterscotch Mudslide

Butterscotch Mudslide is a delightful cocktail that combines the creaminess of Irish cream with the sweetness of butterscotch schnapps. It’s a smooth and creamy drink typically served on the rocks in a rocks glass. A popular variation includes adding a splash of Kahlua to the mix, adding a coffee flavor that complements the butterscotch nicely.

Buttery Nipple

The Buttery Nipple is a popular shooter that mixes butterscotch schnapps with Irish cream. The Irish cream is layered on top of the schnapps, creating a visually appealing two-layer effect. The creamy and sweet flavors combine to create a dessert-like drink that’s perfect for ending a meal or starting a party.

Caramel Apple Martini

The Caramel Apple Martini is a fun and festive drink that’s perfect for fall. It combines butterscotch schnapps with sour apple schnapps and vodka. The result is a cocktail that tastes like a caramel-dipped apple. It’s a sweet and tart drink that’s perfect for Halloween parties or any fall gathering.
