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.
This is based off of @ConcreteRiver camp tiger claw https://alltheflavors.com/recipes/127046#camp_tiger-claw_by_concreteriver mix with some tweaks to make it a slushie Made for @freshipies Saturday DIY show 7/20
I loved camp tiger claw and thought is would make a great base for a sonic green apple slushie
lemon/lime soda and along with a touch of cap jelly candy provide the syrup slushie body for the mix
the sour lemon is added for additional tartness and pushed the sweetness of the apple
fuji apple added for additional sweetness and brightness
Bright berry blended lemonade with a touch of hops from the pink guava made for @freshipies Saturday DIY show on lemonades 7/20
the combo of boysenberry/ raspberry, strawberry and sweet currant provide a really balanced red berry mix with base, middle and top notes
FLV lemonade is a sweet lemonade but needs some top notes lemonade clear provides some of the brighter notes along with lemon sour
pink guava adds some of those tart notes and sits in the middle and provides a light hops note at the finish
raw sugar provides some of the darker sweetness and cap supersweet provides of the brighter sweetness
OPTIONAL WS 23 at .5% and cap super sweet at .30%
Delicious, creamy spoonfuls of Peach Yogurt. FW Yogurt, CAP Creamy Yogurt and FA Madagascar Vanilla provide the backbone for a perfect yogurt base here. Feel free to change the fruit up in the recipe. In fact, I encourage you to experiment and come up with some wonderful versions of the yogurt. Here, I used INW Peach for a great Peach flavor at a low concentration. Give the mix two weeks to fully steep.
So the Developed boyz of Summer stole my thunder with this recipe - ha! like I have thunder to steal. It does seem to me that these Blackberry/Raspberry Lemonade vapes are somewhat the rage these days, so I might as well join in with my Razzleberry/Boysenberry Lemonade recipe. Not much to say here other than the berry notes come out in the initial exhale with the Lemon lingering on for a while. While not a complex profile it is a pretty smooth and refreshing vape on a hot Summer day. The addition of Polar Blast at around 1 drop / 15 ml is optional, but I like the effect it gives along with the WS-23.
I usually vape this on a restricted air flow single coil RTA like a Kayfun V5 running 38 Watts into a Kanthal Clapton at around 0.5 Ohm.
Just a note - FW Lemonade is usually called FW Natural Lemonade.
While FA Cola is surely the star of the show, it goes together HEAVENLY with TFA Black Cherry. This alone is just pure gold.
When adding a nice Vanilla Cream with TFA VBIC, French Vanilla Deluxe and Vanilla Swirl, it just becomes this magical creamy, sparkly, fluffy Cola heaven and every Cola fan should try this out! The 0.3% FA Vanilla Bourbon (which is just Vanilla, no alcohol!) makes one hell of a difference as well.
Additives: Super Sweet is an absolute must, WS-23 is optional.
SNV for Cherry Coke, let it steep for around 5 days to get a rich, creamy Vanilla Cherry Coke.
People in D / A / CH most likely know and love "Der Grüne" by Pfanner, which is a Cactus-Lemon Green Ice Tea.
After around 6 Iterations, this recipe comes close to 99% of the orginal.
TFA Sweet Tea builds the tea base that is rounded up to a Green Tea base with FA Green Tea and FA Bergamot.
INW Cactus and CAP Lemon Sicily are providing the Cactus-y, Lemon-y note that is slightly sour with some help of TFA Sour.
SuperSweet and WS-23 are additives of course, but are a must for the original taste and coldness of an Ice Tea.
Steep Time: Can be SNV'd but it is recommended to let it steep for at least 3 days for the Cactus to settle. The recipe reaches its full potential after 5+ days.
So this recipe was inspired immediately after smelling Country Apple (PUR) for the first time. It is just a perfect baked apple with plenty of sweet caramel goodness. After months of development I am finally satisfied with this recipe. To me it represents the profile pretty well. Mix and Enjoy!
P.S. I have a string of Ice Cream recipes that I am nearly finished with so look out for those if you're a fan of those profiles.
County Apple (PUR): The star of the show! This is without a doubt my favorite apple flavor and it is the perfect fit for this profile. At 3% it is perfectly incorporated throughout the whole vape. Pairs perfectly with Cinnamon Danish Swirl to give it an apple pie profile.
Cinnamon Danish Swirl (CAP): This flavor is used to give this recipe it's apple pie character. Works well with Country Apple and gives it some spice & caramel notes.
Cookie (FA): Gives this a sort of pie crumble taste. Lacks the texture I was looking for. I'll have to revisit that later.
Vanilla Bean Ice Cream (TFA): The main Ice Cream flavor for this recipe. Everyone loves VBIC and now I understand why. Though I do find some off-notes with it at high percentages.
Vanilla Ice Cream (LB): Used in conjunction with VBIC (TFA) to give it more creamy texture.
French Vanilla Icecream (HS): Adds just a bit more cream and just enough butter to enhance the apple pie.
WS-23: Cooling agent. Feel free to leave out if you prefer.
A most excellent sweet, yet tart wild berry candy mix. Forest Mix provides the backbone of the fruit profile.
Bumbleberry layers even more tasty mixed fruits into the mix, along with its wanted candy notes.
Raspberry Sweet is used as another artificial fruit in the recipe.
Sour Ball Candy is such a great additive and lives up to its name. One of favorite newer flavors to play around with.
I added a tiny bit of WS-23 as an afterthought, and I personally like it in there. Feel free to leave it out, though.
