Though it is a non-dairy product, the taste is the same, with flavors of butterscotch and shortbread and topped with a vegan-friendly Butterbeer froth, Universal said in a news release.

Visitors of Universal Orlando can purchase the vegan drink at the Three Broomsticks in Hogsmeade and the Leaky Cauldron restaurant in Diagon Alley. Universal Orlando said there are also other vegan menu options that guests can enjoy, including “Irish Stew”, “Shepherd’s Pasty Pie” and the Universal Orlando exclusive, “Mushroom Pie Platter.”
