The idea behind this recipe started in the DIY_eJuice discord, where we were just bullshitting in the lobby one day, coming up with words that rhymed with "soda". Yoda came up, so I figured, being the "soda man" and all, why not give a "yoda soda" a shot.
So I started thinking, what are the characteristics of Yoda? First off, he's green. What "green" flavors do I have? Lime, Cactus, Apple, Pear, Honeysuckle, Hibiscus were on the shortlist (yes I know their flowers aren't green, but I considered all florals "green" for this purpose).
He's also an elder. That's where Elderflower came in to the picture.
So now I had all these flavors in mind, time to make this actually taste good.
The soda part is something I've worked with a lot, so of course I had to use my go-to fizz base: FLV Citrus Soda, CAP Lemon Lime & WS-23. As true effervescence is not (yet) possible to achieve in vape form, I feel that the sprite esque citrus notes from those flavors is as close as you can get to vaping a soda.
FLV Elderflower became the main part I wanted to build around, and I know that pear and elderflower is a great pairing. FA Pear is perfect for that as it's very sweet, something that is needed to make the recipe balanced against the funky florals and sharp citruses.
TFA Honeysuckle was on the short list, and it is sort of a "funky pear" so I think it's a perfect match here to help the pear with the sweet part, and also bring a more funky vibe to the whole recipe.
As I did a first test mix with those flavors, I knew I was on the right path. The flavors all pair beautifully with eachother and the overall feeling you get from it is very refreshing. After that it was all about finding the right balance between the sharp citruses, funky florals and sweet pear. It took quite a few attempts to get the balance between the elderflower, honeysuckle and lemon lime right, but I think it ended up great. I wouldn't nesscesarily say that it tastes like "yoda".. whatever that would be, but I think the common thread in the recipe is make makes this a yoda soda.
TLDR flavor notes;
FLV Citrus Soda & CAP Lemon Lime acts as the sprite esque soda base, WS-23 adds the cooling which further enhances the soda feeling.
FA Pear adds a very sweet and authentic pear flavor. It's very juicy which helps the mix with the freshness.
TFA Honeysuckle pairs great with the pear to give that funky sweetness, it helps sweeten the citruses and adds some complexity to the mix.
FLV Elderflower adds a floral touch, although it's a bit sweeter than other flowers, and a little musky. I think the sweet-tart flavor that blueberries usually have, this is in the same realm as that.
I love the fruit/floral combo that @RockyHarlow uses in his "Rainforest" recipe. It's hard to describe with words what it tastes like, since it's more of an abstract work of art, but I think his name "Rainforest" fits very well. The sweetness of the guava, sweet/floral honeysuckle and funky cactus makes for a very interesting combination.
As I keep throwing things at my soda base (FLV Citrus Soda, CAP Lemon Lime & WS-23), I think this combo turned out great. It preserves the unique taste of the original mix, but adds a slight fizzyness to it.
A fresh citrus apple soda for y'alls!
I just keep throwing random stuff at the fizzy/sprite base that I used in my Citraspberry recipie, and this works really well.
FA Fuji / CAP Double Apple pair up great to give us a well rounded apple flavor, and FA Pear gives that extra sweetness that those flavors are lacking.
FLV Citrus Soda / CAP Lemon Lime serves as the fizzy "sprite" base.
TFA Vanilla Swirl might seem wierd here, but it mutes the sharp notes that both the citruses and apples have, and brings a very nice slightly vanilla touched sweetness. I think most of you won't taste the vanilla, unless you are really looking for it.
WS-23 is optional or use at your prefered percentage. I recommend starting at 0.25% if you are not used to it, otherwise 0.5-1%.
Smashed blackberries folded into thick, sweet cream.
I set out to replicate a traditional fool which is a very simple & delicious dessert which involves folding pureed or stewed fruit into sweet cream or custard.
FA Vienna cream provides the main, sweet and creamy base bolstered by a smidgen of FLV cream to take it to the next level of uber creamy goodness. A spot of marshmallow to fluff and sweeten things up and we are good to go!
The simplicity and brilliance of FW Blackberry Is put to the test here and works perfectly to provide a fresh, juicy blackberry flavor. The CAP Lemon Lime compliments and balances the creaminess and fruitiness with finesse.
Being cream heavy, this baby needs at least 7 days to shine, 10 days best.
ICEBERG STRAIGHT AHEAD !!!
I have been holding off on releasing this recipe till Chef's finally got some stock back in of the intriguing yet delicious "Crystal Blue" by Decadent Vapours. Finally that time has come!
I have always liked the idea of creating something that also kinda replicates a visual experience in flavour.
This is what is known as a "symphonic sensory" experience.
Picture this, you enter a dangerous glacier cavern but take that risk of entering into it to experience something unique but special.
To help you get the picture take a look at this short 3min Vid:
This has been my inspiration of creation as I introduce to you,
A delectable vape that is unique, special & beautiful.
A little cool but refreshing. Some subtle sweetness with comforting and familiar back notes of flavour that keep this from becoming just another cool vape.
There is so much beautiful complexity in DV Crystal Blue and is an amazing flavour to build off once you get past the blue color.
It offers fruit's kissed with a little anise that just works & I don't like anise.
I wanted to work on delivering some additional freshness to this recipe and Cap lemon lime certainly delivered that.
To enhance the feeling of being surrounded in a Blue Ice Cave, while also feeling comfortable and fresh, I lend to the familiarity of those commercial blue candy notes that are inherent in the FW Blue Raspberry and contrast it with RF Blueberry Lemonade Slushie & FW Blue Ice with the right balance and restraint to avoid a collapse. To add a little extra element to this amazing cool experience the FLV Ice offers another subtle dimension to the slight yet pleasant coolness in this profile.
I would recommend this to anyone that even detests a menthol, or cool vape of any description because it is unlike any other, this is an experience!
Are you ready to go straight ahead?
Enjoy the Iceberg experience & let me know how you enjoyed it in the comments below.
Cheers for reading this far, now go and get mixing!

IMO this is a very pleasant and enjoyable vape on a single coil RDA at 60W with a SST single coil at 0.2 ohm
Steep Time 3 Days for best results.
This is banana mango tango mixed with some fresh citrus fruits to become an ice cold manana soda.
VT Shisha Mango being a fresh and ripe mango pairs really well with HS Banana to make for an interesting tropical blend where you are not really sure if it's a banana or mango you taste. Right off the shake HS Banana will be quite candy like, but after just a day or two of steeping it becomes much more realistic and in line with the mango.
FLV Citrus Soda & CAP Lemon Lime is my go-to fizz combo and together with the cooling from WS-23 it's really refreshing to vape. FLV Citrus Soda brings those sharp citrus notes to give that fizzy feel, and CAP Lemon Lime adds another dimension of citrus with those sweet tart lemon lime notes.
Seeing as the mango and banana both are sweet and relatively "bold" in their texture, they pair beautifully with the fresh citrus notes and together with the cooling it makes for a very refreshing vape.
Unfortunately we don't have PUR Banana available anywhere in EU, but what I have read and heard about it, I can see it being a possible sub for HS Banana.
Personally I wouldn't recommend adding any sweetener to this, as I think it removes the freshness of the citrus notes in this recipe.
Emulated after a pink starburst.
Made on Live Mixing:
We did the Metal show this Saturday on Fresh's YouTube Channel and I wanted to create something that was red, weird and metal !
VT Blood Orange Champagne/WF Sour Ball Candy = A weird but red orange soda/energy drink base.
WF Sour Watermelon Candy/FLV Wild Melon = for a strong but rounder watermelon that shines.
VT Grapefruit/FW Ruby Red Grapefruit = VT Grapefruit is syrupy and works to clash with the watermelon. FW Ruby Red Grapefruit is is just that, red and it works well with the blood orange of the soda.
CAP Lemon Lime = The magic thing that binds all these flavors together and make them work as a profile.
Extra = You can add some WS-23 if you so wish, or some FA Polar. This will also benefit from some good old mint if you like that kind of thing.
Enjoy, be queer and rock on !

My goal was to create a refreshing ADV, with fruit flavors that would last.
MB Watermelon was used as a realistic watermelon, and LA Watermelon Clear adds some candied watermelon to the mix. Next is CAP Double Apple with FA Fuji apple, a winning apple trio. The Inawera Shisha Strawberry, FA Strawberry Red Touch, and the JF Strawberry Sweet make up the long lasting Strawberry Trinity by Id10-T. All brightened by a dash of CAP Lemon Lime.
Mixed at 70VG. A SNV, but better overnight. The NN Monk Fruit Extract and NN Stevia are natural sweeteners with high burns points that will not clog your coils, but sweeten how you like or not at all.
I think this recipe could also be iced or cooled down with menthol, Koolada, or WS-23.
So a few years back late one night on my way home from an all night sesh on heavy drugs and alcohol I was brutally assaulted by a unicorn. Without warning this big,hench fucking thing pounced on me,whipped out his Johnson and unloaded a golden gallon straight in my face. I remember to this day licking my lips and thinking to myself....this ain’t half bad!!! I new one day after this brutal attack I would crave that unicorns piss more than anything else in my life. What’s a man to do?!? Of course I hit the lab and got to work.
CAP- GOLDEN PINEAPPLE - This has to be in there for its golden pissy like qualities,tart yet zingy a must have in dehydrated unicorn piss.
CAP - LEMON LIME - The piss had some serious zing to it, extremely acidic!!!!! I remember having straight heartburn for 6 weeks after this attack! This concentrate replicates it but on a smaller more manageable scale.
VT -FIZZY SHERBET - this is about as close to vape effervescent as your gonna get!! This does a great job of recreating the slight fizz I had occurring on my lips as that unicorn unloaded his bladder all over me!
FLV - LEMONADE - This is exactly where it needs to be, in this recipe supporting that acidic,fizzy piss. Yummy!!!!!! 🤤
FW - BLOODY ORANGE - as yummy as it may be on the night of the attack I remember tasting blood. Whether it was from my mouth or from the unicorns kidney stones he told me about I guess I’ll never truly know. I put this in there anyways.
FW - SWEETENER - yes, this unicorn had some pretty seriously sweet piss and I guess that’s why I got so hooked on the flavour because it definitely wasn’t from the smell of his cock!!!!!!!!
Please share my experience and leave your comments for me to read. Hope you all enjoy it. Much love fuckerz 💙
