NingXia Shots

1 October 10, 2011 - Archive

Trust me when I say you haven’t experienced convention until you have visited the NingXia Red® bar! Having tended bar at last month’s convention in Orlando, I now have firsthand knowledge. My experience included mixing shots, leading drinking games, and general shooting the breeze with bar patrons. I gained valuable knowledge regarding which oils go well together and also which shots are for sipping and which ones are for shooting. Some attendees showed up with a mix already in mind, but most came looking for a recommendation.

The most frequently asked question was “where can I get a copy of these shot mixes?” Nowhere. Well, until now. Consider this your lucky day!

NingXia Bar Shot Mixes (designed for use with 1–2 oz. NingXia Red)

Who Let the Dogs Out?

1 drop lemon or orange essential oil

2 drops tangerine essential oil

1 drop sacred frankincense essential oil

1 drop cinnamon bark essential oil

Great Awakening

1 drop sacred frankincense essential oil

1 drop peppermint essential oil

2 drops of your favorite citrus oil

Stomach Soother

2 drops peppermint essential oil

1 drop DiGize™ essential oil blend

1 drop ocotea essential oil


The Nuclear Explosion

1 drop peppermint essential oil

1 drop lavender essential oil

1 drop frankincense essential oil

1 drop lemon essential oil

1 drop tangerine essential oil

1 drop orange essential oil


These recipes are the perfect way for you to share essential oils and NingXia Red with your friends at your next tasting party! Of course they aren’t a substitute for experiencing the NingXia bar at the next Young Living convention.

Please share some of your favorite shot recipes with the group. Who knows, your shot may end up as the hot mix at the Salt Lake International Grand Convention in June. Oh, and don’t forget to let us know who your all-time favorite bar tender is!

    I love Nuclear Explosion . When I saw the dancers in Minneapolis on the bar, I was speachless. Everybody behind the bar are amazing. You could spend there whole day. Love it.
