—Description[src]

During fifth year Herbology class in the 1988–1989 school year on ginger root, Pomona Sprout particularly emphasized that her favourite usage of the root of the plant, was to be added to Butterbeer, advising students to try it after class, with more comments about asking Rosmerta to add it into the drink when students would be having their next Butterbeer.[2]

Ginger is added to drinks. Hermione Granger in a "The Three Broomsticks" drinks Butterbeer with ginger.[3]
