I wanted to play around with FLV Mimosa and found a good pairing with DV Absinth and FM Gin Orange.
It creates a kind of boozy mentholated vape which is fairly pleasing after 3 days of steeping.
It almost gives the impression that there is koolada in the recipe, but that's just the combo of the Absinth and the Gin.
You can vape it DL, but to me it tastes best when used in MTL.
Succulent Strawberry and Rhubarb together make a perfect pair, you can add a little bit of raspberry if you like. I am the next go round and put in some Cream Cheese Icing. Milkshake base really thickens this up, goes great with the already thick and creamy Vanilla Ice Cream and Pudding, just makes it that much thicker. Your going to need a big bore straw to suck this milkshake. I suggest Flv sweetness if you want sweeter, plus it will explode that strawberry and rhubarb to "damn that was good "
Trendy cordials or squash has been a big trend around the world for many years where you see big leading companies and smaller marketers competing to bring out the next big thing especially when it comes to fruits which overtime has seen some amazing pairings that widely differ from the squashes that I remember drinking in my childhood. I can only say we are now spoiled from what was originally a saturated market of orange and black current varieties.
So here’s a take on the classy more upmarket varieties based on a off the shelf brand which sees a blend of raspberry,rhubarb and blossom orange combined with apple juice. It’s truly delicious and balanced and the only thing missing is summer!!!
Cap sweet tangerine/FLV Blood orange
There’s many ways to combine oranges which is definitely a debate for another day. I didn’t want to go down the FanTastic orange route especially with the amount of ingredients there to create that orange flavour so it needed slimming down. I wanted something realistic especially this being a beverage vape so cap sweet tangerine fits the recipe perfect. It’s bright and vibrant and very realistic and adds plenty of juiceness and with the addition of FLV blood orange adds a little more authenticity,tang and zest.
INW Raspberry/TFA Raspberry Sweet
Again these 2 raspberries don’t need any introduction they’re proven Raspberry staples amongst the diy community. The combination of the 2 gives a somewhat authentic Raspberry with INW being very realistic while the TFA adds some sweetness and syrup.
Hands down the holy grail of rhubarb no more words needed. Keep this flavour low and it provides a authentic rhubarb that just works in any direction you need to go. I’ve had this up to 1% while developing this recipe and it does work higher up the range but it will mute certain flavours within the recipe but if intense rhubarb is your thing feel free to up the percentage to 1% for a more tart tab laughing experience.
This is not necessarily a flavour that’s required it’s not doing much but by adding it,it will pop the raspberry and makes it brighter infact I feel it makes all fruits brighter and prevents foreground flavours being lost especially when using something as aggressive as INW Rhubarb. With its addition it prevents the recipe from being dry so wherever you get dryness within recipe developing a touch of Dragonfruit can seriously prevent this.
Cap Double Apple
This was a flavour that I didn’t anticipate using for the said recipe only befit wasn’t on the said bottles label. So why is it included? It’s always advisable to read the ingredients I was surprised when I seen it in the ingredients however I thought I’d try it and I wasn’t disappointed including it. Apple definitely adds something of a base flavour to pair other fruits around and maybe they had a reason to use it. Everything blends very well into the Apple without taking any of the flavours in other directions. I didn’t want to take the Apple flavour into anything too advanced so I kept it simple. Cap double apple fits the bill perfectly providing juiciness and some authenticity. I could of used Fuji but that flavour does overpower somewhat and could of confused the recipe. Basically the Apple is there without noticing it if that makes sense.
FLV Cherry Blossom
Originally a orange blossom would of been a better choice however it’s a flavour not widely available so I had to bend something else that I already had and one that is pretty well described to what it is,however this is only true if used right after all adding cherry would probably ruin the recipe. FLV cherry blossom is perfect and has that blossom floral elements without being overpowering. If kept really low you get what you need out the flavour without contributing any cherry notes. Perfect!!!.
Cap Super Sweet
I like any beverage related vape with a little sweetener it’s more there for my preference but add or dismiss to your liking
Add WS23 for a cooler vape anything between 0.5-3%
Don’t forget to support my work by heading over to chefsflavours.co.uk and purchasing oneshots from the Divine Oneshot range.
Rhubarb, orange, basil gin
I wanted too make something with flavor
monks gin, and I went with gin orange.
This was pretty much a firstly timer, and I might change it a bit, but as it is, it’s quite what I wanted.
I know there probably aren’t many people who got the flavor monks gin, but if you do, give it a try😁🍸
Tart rhubarb and zingy apples is the order of the day here. This simple recipe is a remix of the popular beverage by CAWSTON PRESS.
This recipe is simple and so refreshing especially and a hot summer day. It’s addictive despite its simplicity and I haven’t got bored yet. It was pretty easy to re create especially as its profile is only really 2 flavours so it’s not really difficult to fail. Here below are some quick notes.
Certainly packs a punch and a little goes a long way. Nothing out there to compete with this flavour it’s perfect for drinks or desserts and here in this recipe it doesn’t overpower if used lightly. 0.25% is perfect here to allow it to sit upfront but not be a nuisance all the way through the vape.
FA Apple Stark
Perfect Apple for a Apple juice flavour, nothing else to add except it needs help from other apples.
CAP Double Apple
Great Apple flavour that’s bright and zesty that doesn’t hide amongst other powerful flavours like the rhubarb. Perfect combo with the Apple stark.
FA Wine Champagne
This adds a little fermented eliment to the recipe and melds the rhubarb and apples together alongside adding some mind of suggestion FIZZ!!!
CAP Super Sweet
A little sweetener takes away some acidity from the recipe.
It’s a drink,it’s summer so let’s chill it down.
Shake n vape recipe but the apples can be a little on the alcohol taste so steep for 3 days if you find the taste that way.
Add some gin or vodka by VTA for a boozy summer delight.
I recall when I first read about INW Rhubarb and its authenticity. I had to try it, only to sample it and throw it in the bottom of the box. I was recently discussing baking things like apple crisp and rhubarb crisp at work, when someone asked if I could make a rhubarb custard vape. It got my creative gears turning, trying to figure out ways to impart INW Rhubarb into that type of recipe without it being overly tart and also without just dumping sweetener in to mask what might otherwise be an undesirable flavor in a vape. I've always thought that proper pairings and the right additives should eliminate any need to pour diluted sucralose into a mix unless you're trying to clone a commercial juice.
What I came up with is shake and vapable and carries plenty of sweetness without the gunk. It isn't exactly a "custard" in my opinion, but it isn't exactly a "crisp" either. It is however, delightful and very tasty.
Those of you that have a bottle of INW Rhubarb already understand the potency and subjective "vile tartness" of the flavor. It can be too sour, tart, vegetal, whatever sensitivities it hits your palate with. That being said, it is very true to it's name and Inawera did a great job as far as authenticity with this one. Readers who have had the pleasure of gnawing on freshly picked rhubarb from the garden will know exactly what I'm talking about. If you don't like it and you have a bottle, it is workable, the key is pairing it with a supporting cast of fruits that can accent it without taking over.
This flavor reminds me of a strong white wine. It carries a fermented note and does wonders with wetness in a recipe without adding the aloe funk INW Cactus would. I used it (ages ago) in my Grape Ice Cream Cone to add a little jazz and beef up the main fruit note. I still make it fairly regularly to this day, Koolada and all, although some prefer it without the chill factor. I've tried many other fruit combos on this base, but I've found the ones I like best kept the Liquid Amber. Without it, the fruit note gets lost in the mix and fades into the backgrund. But back those creams off, and we lose that thick ice cream volume and mouthfeel. It took a lot of trial and error to conclude that I needed FA Liquid Amber in this recipe, and I carried that experience to the recipe below.
Not an earthy green pear like TFA Pear. This one is more of a candied pear with its bright juiciness. It almost comes off as "crisp", and carries a lingering sweetness on the tongue. It does have a relatively authentic pear taste, but there is definitely some extra sweetness to go along with it. I tend use it at lower percentages to brighten up fruit recipes rather than cheating in a sweetener. It blends well with the green note of the rhubarb and helps ease the tartness into something much more palatable.
As a standalone strawberry, it holds its own, but it does benefit from being put with other strawberry flavors if you're after a full on strawberry taste. It has jammy properties, comes off a bit candied, and lends some soft creaminess, almost a puree if you will. It works well with every strawberry I've tried it with. Here, it serves as a great addition to the fruit portion of the recipe, mellowing out the rhubarb a bit further while giving the mix a bright hint of strawberry without coming to the front.
CAP definitely hit the cinnamon with this one, but some say the bakery "danish" portion got left out along with the "swirl". It doesn't have the thick breadiness you would expect, and that's fine for this recipe. I started out trying for a rhubarb crisp, but tabled the idea and decided to make the mix a bit more gooey, bringing the next two flavors to the party. This could probably be backed down to the 1.5-2% range for the cinnamon sensitive. As far as using v2 here, just don't, you will be disappointed. I've subbed CDS v2 in other recipes, and it doesn't do the wonderful things v1 does.
This is one ingredient I find to be a bit under-rated and under-utilized. All opinions aside, I find this a much more valuable ingredient than CAP Vanilla Custard. It doesn't take much to get the job done, and it's much thicker and egg-ier as a custard should be. Some say it has a vanilla note, others claim there to be none. I personally don't pick up vanilla from this one, maybe more of a heavy milk/cream sort of thing that would definitely play into a cereal recipe a lot better than actual dairy/milk offerings out there. At 1.5%, it serves as part of a thick and solid base for the fruits to sit on without turning the recipe into an eggy fruit + cream sort of thing.
This is not a strong or dark vanilla flavoring. At 1%, it provides a quite bit of body without bullying out other ingredients. I find it incredibly versatile, much like TFA Vanilla Swirl, yet I find this to be a little thicker and more concentrated. It's a great booster for the Custard, and adds another layer of depth to the gooey base. If you don't have this, TFA Vanilla Swirl at 2% should be an OK sub, but order yourself some of this because you're missing out on a fantastic ingredient.
An eclectic blend of RED heroes creating a mezmerising taste sensation.
INW Rhubarb is what it says on the label... This is an eerily authentic rhubarb in a bottle and encapsulates the distinctive sour & fruity rhubarb taste perfectly. It's sharpness and slight sweet notes lends itself perfectly as a pairing with strawberry.
RF strawberry brings an authentic, fresh strawberry, burst to blend beautifully with TFA Strawberry. Combined, they create a magical union of RED.
I tried various combinations of strawberry but settled on a real strawberry taste rather than than the popular and unrealistic strawberry notes.
As raspberry can overpower a recipe in an instant, I opted for Sweet raspberry to bring the sweet, slightly tangy raspberry feel, boosted by the authenticity of FA Berryl. The wateriness inherently present in Sweet strawberry lends itself perfectly here as it tames some of the stonger flavours, especially the Rhubarb. I tried both FA Raspberry in INW Raspberry and felt that Berryl was less aggressive and sat much better here to create the final RED layer.
FA Cream fresh adds a slight creaminess and binds our RED trio, whilst providing a subtle mouthfeel to make the mix more harmonious.
Give this baby 5 days or so for the Rhubarb to settle and allow the REDness to shine!!
Tastes just like taking a bit out of fresh, crisp rhubarb. INW really nailed it on the head with this one. It's got a bit of a sharp tartness to it, with some sweetness that's reminiscent of an under-ripe strawberry, and a slight sort of fresh celeryesque taste to it. It is quite sharp/pungent at first, but mellows out in to something beautiful after a steep. This flavor makes a great star of the show as well as accent to other fruits or herbal profiles. This flavor is pretty forward, so it's definitely going to be playing towards the top of the profile.
