Who cares if it is no longer summer?! Butterbeer ice cream (okay, any ice cream) is good any season and any day! It’s the fourth week of our countdown to FANTASTIC BEASTS: THE CRIMES OF GRINDELWALD posts! That means we’re up to HARRY POTTER AND THE GOBLET OF FIRE. Don’t cry! You know you want to. I know you’re thinking about Edward right now…err…Cedric, I mean. This week, I’ve got Butterbeer Ice Cream! Life, Family, Joy has butterbeer shots, and They Call Me T made butterbeer coffee shots! Yum!
Harry Potter and The Goblet of Fire
I don’t know about you, but I really feel like with each Harry Potter book, the story just got better and better. Oh who am I kidding? Everyone thinks that right? THE GOBLET OF FIRE has some of my favorite scenes in it. The portkeys, the tents, the Quidditch match, the Triwizard Tournament…everything. This book IS everything. I love the detailed scenes in both the book and the movie. It’s the book that showed us just how truly wonderful Hufflepuff House is. Hufflepuffs value hard work, patience, loyalty and fair play. In fact, Newt Scamander is a Hufflepuff.
Butterbeer in The Goblet of Fire
As all Harry Potter fans know, Harry’s name was drawn from the goblet even though he didn’t put his name in it. After much discussion, it is decided that Harry must be in the tournament since his name was drawn. He’s given butterbeer when he’s being congratulated. I’m pretty sure butterbeer is in all of the books, but we’re making it for this one!
