I've always thought TFA Blackberry & INW Grape would go well together, and because I'm having a bit of a love affair with WS-23 right now, I decided to mix up a darker take on a Tiger's Blood Snow Cone. This is only the first stab at it, so I'm wondering if I should lower the FA Forest Fruit a bit and maybe add a touch of Dragonfruit as an emulsifier, but, for the moment, it's fun and tasty enough to share as it is.

This is a shake & vape, but, if you're at all squeamish about INW Cactus, give it 3 days, and the actual flavor of it will disappear, leaving behind only the exquisite juiciness.

Vaping something that actually tastes like beer would be gross. This is more of a collaborative interpretive dance inspired by a cold glass of Ruby Red Ale. Notes of hops, raspberry, grapefruit, blood orange, and frothy suds dance on your tastebuds.

Very much a work in progress, but after two revisions, this is getting pretty tasty and hitting most of the right notes.
The first version wasn't tasting "red" enough or fizzy enough. It couldn't quite decide what kind of ale it was..
Version 2 added raspberries, WS-23 to make it cool, and bumped the blood orange champagne up to 4% for more effervescence. Unfortunately it also picked up some cheap wine notes. Just a touch of Vanilla Swirl muted a harsh topnote and made the whole thing a bit smoother.
Version 3 dropped the blood orange champagne back to 2% and added fizzy sherbet to restore the bubbly quality.
Thanks to eyemakepizza and isuamadog, whose idea i remixed into this recipe and whose feedback made it better.

I started out with an idea of an Alien franchise inspired mix. Originally I thought Nostromo would be a fitting name, but was left not really feeling the inspiration. Then Xenomorph came into play. For those not familiar, those are the adult form of the creatures in the films.

This is a fizzy, lime soda with just that touch of Ginger Ale to give it a push.

It was easy where I had to go with this then. Xenomorphs have green, acidic blood. So Lime was a given. And I knew I wanted it to be an in your face, intense recipe.

I originally chose VT Shisha Lime and FA Aurora as my base, but it seemed that Aurora was smoothing out the lime too much and that is not what I wanted. With a second opinion from u/FomentLife, I decided to scrap Aurora and add FA Lime Tahity Distilled to get some wonderful zest going in the mix.

u/Staybert found success with FLV Citrus Soda in his Citrasberry recipe, and I knew right away it belonged here.

u/OdieDoodah gave me the suggestion of TFA Ginger Ale to add an extra level to the "blood".

CAP Hibiscus brings some syrupy goodness into the fold.

This came together in an AHA! moment and I'm quite pleased with the results.

Smooth apple tobacco. Can be SNV, it might seem moist and plain at first, but let it wait!
Needs 1-2 weeks for the Dark for Pipe to come out, INW delivers.

Tbh I literally spent the last 24 hours trying to figure out a name for this, but I'm a big Jojo fan and it just fit.

A cool, LemonLavenderPear Champagne enveloped in Honeysuckle.

It's like what you'd imagine a golden lotus would taste like, but the effervescence of the FW Pink Bubbly turns it into a big breath of golden lotus pollen flying into your face.

INW Cactus - Needed a bit of tart juiciness.

TFA Dragonfruit - To fluff and emulsify the fruits.

TFA Honeysuckle - Soothing fresh floral note that blends into each flavor's background.

FA Lavender - A perfect compliment to FE Lemon and just an overall amazing and satisfying flavor. I've been meaning to put more use to it.

FE Lemon - The king of lemons, and just enough to fuse with Lavender so that neither dominates the other.

INW Pear - IMO the King of Pears. Provides an accurate and gentle pear note that rests alongside the lemon and lavender.

FW Pink Bubbly - This one provides effervescence without additional flavor changes, like TFA Champagne or VT Fizzy Sherbet.

WS-23 - I put this into just about anything; kicks up the flavor just a tad, and brings in the chill wind.

pretty close to tasting like you just shoved a handfull of those bad boys in your mouth.

A sort of Gin-fizz-let with citrus and lime. Refreshing and satisfying!
VT Botanical Gin is aromatic, grassy and delightfully strange. CAP Juicy Lemon tries to stand out but FA Lime Tahity Cold Pressed and VT Bergamot tie it down. Might use a better lemon (FE lemon) when I get it, but its fine as it is.
Could use a little fizz? We'll see if I don't ruin it all by adding some.

A Fizzy Pink Lemonade with a (hibiscus) twist
Noting Fancy, Just Good!!!!!

Straight up Passion fruit vape. The Cactus is a great addition to compliment the Passion fruit. You can add a drop or two of Koolada to have a refreshing fruity vape!
Enjoy

I made this juice in about 45 seconds. Had food in the microwave and realised I'd left my last bottle of good juice at work.

Used the LA Lemonade pretty low as I find it a bit harsh, didn't really want a super strong lemon flavour.

Used cactus about 1% higher than I've ever used it before as an accident, scale wasn't working correctly and didn't register until I'd used too much. Anyway it really helps make the flavour sticky somehow, love it!

For anyone who's ever had Allen's Red Frogs before, this tastes very similar, with a slight yellow frog on the exhale. Super sweet, super chewy. You can almost feel it sticking in your back teeth!

This is my first actual original recipe and it's definitely an ADV!

Mixed at max VG, possibly worth adding 10% PG to bring the flavour out a bit more.

Flavor Notes

By: Chrisdvr1 Score: 100 / 100 Solo: 1.5% Mix: 0.5% Steep: 2 days Difficulty: 70 / 100

Super sweet with an earthy floral accent. Savory and Light with just a touch of bitterness gives it completely and contrast. More of a natural syrupy sweetness like stevia or agave not sugary.

Relatable Flavors Reminds me of drinking agave nectar with a touch of rose water, or orange blossom.
