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

Caramel Pumpkin Spice Latte Recipe (without an espresso machine or a trip to the store)
We love autumn because we LOVE pumpkin. Especially that time of year when Starbucks starts selling their PSL. But after spending so much money on trips to the coffee shop, we decided to try out some recipes online. Most of them called for weird ingredients that we had to go buy, they weren’t sweet enough, weren’t pumpkin-y enough, or they were only good if you had an espresso maker. So, we made our own, with foam, what we had in our cabinet, and what we think is just the right amount of pumpkin and sugar.
Needed: 2 cups milk (we used nonfat), 3 tbs canned pumpkin puree,
3 tbs sugar (we used regular cane sugar but brown sugar would be yummy too), 2 tbs vanilla, 1/4 tsp nutmeg, 1/2 cup strong brewed coffee, optional: caramel, pinch of nutmeg, and whipped cream
To Do: In a medium saucepan on medium heat, stir milk, pumpkin, and sugar until melted Bring your heat down and add the vanilla, nutmeg, and coffee. Heat for about 5 minutes or until simmering. Put your entire mixture in a blender and pulse until frothy. Pour into mugs and top with whipped cream, caramel, and a sprinkle of nutmeg. Enjoy!
