*For the Locke use any whiskey you like but sweet whiskey works better than bourbon or sour mash*
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!!

So Long Island Iced Teas can be great, It is a relatively complex cocktail and is refreshing on a hot day. So we sat down and came up with a refreshing, crisp, and a tad bit tart but sweet cocktail. The sweet and sour gives it a bit of a kick, while the Dr. Pepper rounds out the flavor and gives it a sweet after taste.

To kick off Designated December we have The Kirby!!
a light, bubbly, fruity drink that is easy going and delicious. If mixed properly it has a nice pink hue to it and is a little bubbly, just like the pink ball that won all our hearts two decades ago. Now this drink has a very understated taste to it that any designated driver will enjoy while staying responsible.

So it appears to me that I cannot be trusted to handle the queue. I set it up to auto post our mocktails one a week. However none of them ever got posted. So this week I will be uploading 3, one later today, one Wednesday, and one Friday. I apologize for not having the drinks out on time. Happy Holidays from all of us here at EXP Bar Online.

Designated Driver December.
The month of December has lots of great drinking traditions. Bourbon in the egg nog, Peppermint Schnapps in the Hot cocoa, Champagne for new years eve, A hangover cure Bloody Mary the next morning. These are all things we know about, every one makes christmas party/new years eve party plans. But no one ever thinks about the designated driver. December has the highest rate of DUI’s of any month and we here at EXP Bar online are celebrating the unsung heroes of these holidays.
The Designated Drivers!
So this month We are going to be uploading Mocktails every week. Just because you are not drinking doesn’t mean you can’t have a fancy awesome nerdy drink with your buddies. So grab a mocktail, kick back with your buddies, and drive safe.
Read more about the new theme (including how to switch back to the old one) over on our staff blog. This notification will expire within one week, but you can also easily turn it off in your customization panel.
