Emulated after Mamba Apple Kiwi candies
Made on Live Mixing:
Had a friend who wanted to see if I could clone Pachamama: The Mint Leaf. I tasted honeydew, kiwi, some green mint, and a pound of sweetener. I'm not a huge fan of sweetener, so I left that out, then I went on to build it with some staples. In the end, this ended up tasting way better than the original.
I picked TFA Honeydew since it seemed to be the most popular Honeydew, and it works very well, here. Wet, sweet, accurate to profile, nothing to complain about. But I felt it needed a bit of tart, so in comes INW Cactus.
I tested INW Cactus at 0.75% at first, which was really nice at that level, but it worked so well with everything that a little more definitely couldn't hurt. 1% is amazing. Just meshes everything in your face and you can actually start tasting the Cactus apart from everything.
FW Kiwi is my favorite Kiwi, but if you gravitate more towards FA Kiwi be my guest and try swapping it out and let me know how it goes. At this level, the flavor stays right on par with the Honeydew and they become inseparable.
CAP Cool Mint fit the original mint flavor in Pachamama accurately for me. This wouldn't've worked as well as with a peppermint or straight menthol. IMO it gives off the sort of mint you'd get from a Creme de Menthe chocolate. It's quite potent, so just a few drops suffice. Anything more and it begins to dominate the profile.

A cold, fresh, blueberry-kiwi fizzy cocktail.
FW Blueberry - like sweet, squeezed candy blueberries. Just the kind I want. But how to enliven the blue-ness? The berry-ness? Thanks to some mad experiment 3 years ago by [deleted], the key is
CAP Hibiscus. Really? Well, it works. Smell them side by side and it all makes sense. That's what it needed. Tested the mix at 0.5% (totally fine), 0.75% (excellent), and 1% (too noticeable). What a concept.
FW Kiwi - The wet, dark green pulp of the fruit. It's never complete without some compliments, though. It's missing that tart kick, so of course we'll add
INW Cactus and TFA Dragonfruit, to fluff and emulse and juicify and tart it all.
When it comes to fizziness, my first soda vape was /u/ID10-T
's 1-2-3 Cranberry Sprite, which is still a rotating ADV favorite of mine. But I'd also experimented a lot with FW Pink Bubbly, which worked really well with fruits. So why not half and half? 1% of VT Fizzy Sherbet and 1% FW Pink Bubbly works immensely well.
FW Sweetener is my go-to for sweetener due to it's chemical simplicity, but if you're a CAP Super Sweet fan, sub it for 0.25%.
WS-23 for the coolness of the slush.
Kiwi Berry Cream
I used CAP Harvest Berry & INW Shisha Strawberry. For the berry note in the mix.
FW Kiwi: I liked it more than FA in here. It is slightly tart & a little on the candied side but it goes well with INW Shisha Strawberry IMO.
For the CREAM I used my FAVORITE FLV Cream & paired it with OOO Marshmallow Vanilla to thicken up the the cream a bit & to round off the edges of the fruits.

The default in this area is "No Description" and it fits. I cannot describe this flavor and I have not met anyone else who can either. I would not presume to compare this recipe to Grack but it does have some of the the same enigmatic flavor and mouthfeel characteristics as that famous juice. The recipe needs a 3 week steep to be at its finest. When it turns gold it is ready to go. It will also work very well with nic up to 12mg, I have not tried it above 12. Would welcome your thoughts.
