The Universal Orlando Resort has begun experimenting with a third variety of Butterbeer in the Wizarding World of Harry Potter.

Since the debut of the Wizarding World at Islands of Adventure in 2010, Butterbeer - the fictional drink from the Harry Potter books and movies - has been available in chilled or frozen variants. It has proven to be immensely popular, with millions of servings of the drink having been sold to visitors.

Universal is currently hosting the Harry Potter Celebration, and has been offering select guests the chance to sample a new variety of Butterbeer - this time, served warm. The drink comes in a cup with a Starbucks-style cardboard sleeve, and has proven to be a hit with most early reviewers.

It has not yet been confirmed whether Universal plans to make warm Butterbeer a permanent addition to its menu, but it seems likely that it will be introduced in time for the debut of The Wizarding World of Harry Potter - Diagon Alley later in 2014.

Universal's competitors have been trying to replicate the success of Butterbeer, and Universal itself has also introduced a host of other themed drinks. Take a look at some of the best in recent round-up of the top 6 Butterbeer rivals.
