“Eternal glory! That’s what awaits the student who wins The Triwizard Tournament, but to do this that student must survive three tasks. Three extremely dangerous tasks.”
– Albus Dumbledore (Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire film)
The Triwizard Tournament was comprised of four Champions from three of the largest wizarding schools in Europe: Fleur Delacour from the Beauxbatons Academy of Magic, Viktor Krum from Durmstrang Institute, and Cedric Diggory and Harry Potter from Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry.
Chosen from the Goblet of Fire, each of the Champions risked their lives to bring honor to their schools, and glory to themselves.
It is only fitting that they be honored with cocktails that represent each of their unique talents (Harry Potter will be featured at a later date).
The Goblet of Fire
The Goblet of Fire is an impartial judge used to decide which Champion from each school will compete for fame, fortune, and eternal glory.
Impartial but dangerous, once a name is chosen from the Goblet the participant must compete, entering into a binding magical contract.
Pyromaniacs get excited, lets set this Goblet on fire.
Goblet of Fire
- 1 oz vodka
- 1 oz blue curacao
- 3 oz lemonade
- Splash 151
- Pinch of cinnamon
- Pour vodka, blue curacao, and lemonade into a goblet-type glass
- Top with a splash of 151 proof rum
- Light on fire
- Add the pinch of cinnamon to the flames (cinnamon will spark)
- *** Blow out flames before consuming! ***
The Fleur Delacour
Fleur, a part-Veela, is the sole girl competing in the Triwizard Tournament, displaying her bravery and confidence despite being outnumbered by the boys.
However, it is her silvery-blonde hair, pale eyes and mesmerizing beauty that turns heads with her arrival to Hogwarts.
Still, Fleur quickly shows that she is as cunning as she is alluring.
Nuvo, which is composed of premium French vodka, sparkling white wine and passion fruit, is a perfect complement to her presence and grace.
- 3 oz Nuvo
- 1 oz Vodka
- 3 Raspberries
- 1 Strawberry
- To chill Vodka: Add ice and Vodka to cocktail shaker
- Add Raspberries to bottom of champagne flute
- Strain chilled vodka into flute
- Add Nuvo
- Garnish with strawberry
The Viktor Krum
At only eighteen, Viktor was already a famous seeker for the Bulgarian National Quidditch Team.
Despite his fame, Viktor shied away from attention and was known to be reserved and only spoke when spoken too.
Nevertheless, Viktor was known to be kind, brave and a fordable challenger to his fellow Champions.
In honor of his heritage, two Bulgarian favorites will come together to make his simple but rugged drink.
- 1 pint beer
- 1 oz brandy
- Pour beer of your choice (preferably a pale lager) into a glass
- Top with brandy
The Cedric Diggory
Before becoming Edward Cullen, Robert Pattinson broke our hearts as Cedric Diggory, a handsome and popular sixth year from the House of Hufflepuff.
Successful in all that he pursued, Cedric was a prefect, seeker, captain of the Hufflepuff Quidditch team and chosen as the Champion to represent Hogwarts in the Triwizard Tournament.
A royal cognac highlights his bravery, still a sweet touch recognizes him as a character all of us couldn’t help but fall in love with.
- 2 oz Grand Marnier
- Sour mix
- Lemon wedge
- 1 cherry
- Pour Grand Marnier and sour mix into shaker with ice
- Strain into Glass
- Squeeze in lemon wedge
- Top with cherry
