It's Gin, it's lemon lime soda, it's melon balls.... Adjusted the recipe slightly since it's steeped. The gin seemed to fall back just a bit more than I wanted it too after it steeped so I added just a tad more, and the citrus soda also fell back a bit more than I wanted so I added a touch more of that. Lowered the sweetener a tad too as that popped out more than I wanted after it steeped.
Everything else in the recipe has stayed the same. I just ignored the cucumber element in this picture as to me it is just decoration and probably didn't add anything to the actual drink. lol Overall without the sweetener (a version I made for myself) I enjoy this quite a bit as a gin drinker myself. The alcohol notes are pretty subtle which in a soda drenched drink it wouldn't be slap you in the face alcoholic anyway. I'm sure VTA Botanical Gin or FA Gin could also be added into this if you want a little more of an alcohol note, but personally I didn't want that. While you could sub the FLV gin for FA gin, it will be a little less aromatic in terms of gin, and a little more alcoholic, and I'd probably turn up the percentage a tad with FA gin. VTA Botanical could also be subbed but I'd probably turn the percentage down a bit from the FLV amount as it's a tad more aromatic. FLV is just somewhere in between.
You can mix without sweetener and get a good result, but for more of an authentic soda type feel to it sweetener works better. I picked PUR over the other sweeteners because it is strong and not drying, so it doesn't take away from the wetness of the drink.
( mango rum punch for Fresho3 fund raiser for the guardians foundation)
Helping one of the hardest working advocates out there NorCal Sickboy. He wanted a nice drink for the beach So @queeryourvape and I decided to help him out!!!
VT mango juice is perfect for this as is has a nectar type juicy mouth feel,
Royal orange is very much like fresh squeeze OJ and has a nice brightness and acts as is more of the top note here
The combination of light rum and Jamaican rum create a slightly spiced warmed finish for this punch
pomagrante was added for a slight grenadine effect
sugar loaf Pineapple sweet less bight pineapple that contrasts some of the brighter top notes of the other citrus
cinamon is added as an accent note that really creates a nice back note with the tropical flavors ( dont knock it till you try it :-) )
This is our take on a mango rum punch
Citric tropical juice infused with a light rum boozy note and a slightly creamy finish.
If your sensitive to TH I would let it steep a few days so that the citric notes calm down and you can also use EM to add a little smoothness if your one of those people sensitive to the citric notes in lime Tahiti and sweet tangerine.
*used a touch of Pom for the grenadine
Inspired by the Hurricane Cocktail.
2 oz. light rum
3 oz. dark rum

2 tbsp. grenadine
My entry for mixer's club from the reddit diy ejuice for dec '18. I was surprised by the reception that was positive. This is still a work in progress because I feel like there's still some places I'd like to take this especially based on the feedback I got.
FA Gin & Blackcurrant. This started right out of the box with a pairing of FA Gin and Black Currant. If you want a simple berry cocktail, I'd try FA gin at 2% with Black currant at 1%. I enjoyed this for some time because I felt the citrus notes gave me a grapefruit-y feel and I decided to pursue that in adding the next layers. To me, this has been my base start for all my gin drinks. FA Gin is described as juniper heavy and booze light. I love it. i bumped it up to 3% here because at 2% with the other flavors it just wasn't shining through enough. In simpler mixes, I always keep it at 2%.
CAP Mixed berry & TPA DragonFruit - This was added to give a nondescript boost to the berry flavor in the profile and add a touch of sweetness. DF was added because the whole thing got too dry. You could probably swap the MB with different fruits for a change and DF out with whatever you prefer to use to add juiciness. I went with tried and true and it worked fine enough I didn't feel the need to uncover those rocks.
CAP Sweet Guava - added to boost the grapefruit notes, sweetness and to play off the berries. I think it worked well here and probably wouldn't swap it out, myself. It maybe wasn't as successful in boosting the grapefruit notes as it was in just making this a more rounded vape.
INW Lemon Mix & FA Lime Tahity CP - This ratio (0.25:0.5) is my standard lemon/lime wedge for drinks. It's aggressive and lasts through a steep, (though the lime fades more for me). This is swappable in my opinion. DIY, baby.
Coolant - I felt Polar blast worked well here. Adjust to taste.
Variant: Adding 2-3% VT Botanical Gin and lowering FA Gin to 2% makes this a much boozier vape. Adding 2% VT tonic water for a more realistic cocktail taste but without that effervescent pop.
Enjoy and leave feedback/suggestions as you like. It's always appreciated.
