A note from the creator:
So Like many of you i read Ender’s game in middle school. Obviously being that age I fell in love with that book. As time went on I read the book over and over and couldn’t wait to watch it on the big screen. So this weekend the movie comes out and we all here at EXP bar decided to memorialize the Wiggins children in martini form. because above all they need to be classy and fierce.
Locke - We made the Peter strong, with a nice burn, but a hint of sweetness with a slow bitter finish. A powerful blend with a hint of love for the first Wiggin child
Demosthenes - We made the Valentine sweet, warming, and a nice little kick to show her strong side. A loving sweet blend for the second Wiggin child.
Ender - We made the Andrew a perfect blend of sweet and strong. Not too fierce yet not too weak. A perfect blend for the third Wiggin child
So go out enjoy and hopefully the movie lives up to the book and we can celebrate with a Wiggin-tini!!
"In the moment when I truly understand my enemy, understand him well enough to defeat him, then in that very moment I also love him.” ~ Ender Wiggin

Bloody Tears (Castlevania cocktail)
1.25 oz Gin
1 splash Chambord
1 oz Lemon juice
1 oz Grenadine
Directions: Muddle the raspberries and add all ingredients in a shaker with ice. Shake and strain into a coupe glass. The bits of raspberry seeds and fruit are the Bloody Tears.

Happy Halloween! A vampire drink seemed appropriate for the occasion, so this episode Mitch will show you how to make Bloody Tears, a Castlevania inspired cocktail.

Rainbow Road (Super Mario Kart cocktail)
4 oz. Orange juice
½ oz. Gin
⅓ oz. Grenadine
⅓ oz. Rum
3 oz. Vodka
2 splashes Blue Curacao
Directions: Mix orange juice and gin together and pour them into the glass. Then, stir the rum and grenadine together and pour it slowly down the side of the glass - it should settle at the bottom, turning the bottom red and the area immediately above it orange. Mix the vodka and blue Curacao together and then layer it on top of the orange juice. The top should remain blue, but some should settle down to create a green layer. Like Super Mario Kart's toughest course, this drink may be difficult to finish.
A note from the creator:
People! The first Mario Kartgame game out for Super Nintendo 21 YEARS AGO TODAY! Super Mario Kartwas the first time we got to fall into infinite space off the seizure-inducing Rainbow Road. So, we really had no choice but to make this powerful, colorful, easy-to-spill drink:
In addition to taking our inaugural drifts around Rainbow Road, on September 1, 1992 we triggered boos and lightning bolts, played as Koopa Troopa and Bowser, and tied balloons to our karts and shot each other with shells FOR THE FIRST TIME EVER. The original game is still a ton of fun, but it’s great to see how much those basic elements have evolved over the last 21 years.
Here, have a taste of the madness! (video below):
