I wanted to just enjoy a nice crisp apple cider paired with butterscotch. After playing around with the profile for a while this is what I came up with that feels balanced, satisfying, and flavorful. It ended up veering a little bit from the profile due to the cinnamon danish swirl but in a good way.
Apple Mix and Fuji create a really nice tart baked granny smith apple with a nice layer of slight spicy cidery goodness. The Fuji helps the apple have texture and crispness while the Apple mix completes the darker layers of the fruit and adds heat to it.
Liquid Amber used in small quantities adds an almost slightly fermented spiced sour aspect to our apple and really turns it into an all-out cider. The authenticity this flavor adds just amazes me.
Butterscotch ripple adds a nice counterbalance to our apple top note and forms a nice soft crack butterscotch glaze. Bolstered with a tiny bit of bavarian cream helps it stand up to the apple. There's a bit of inherent cream in both of these flavors that really helps to mellow out the whole vape a bit which it needs.
Cinnamon Danish Swirl completes our mix and really bridges the gap between the butterscotch and the apple cider making this a vape worthy of its name. The only way i can describe what it does is it fills in the gaps in the recipe. It adds a bit of cinnamon and a bit of mouth tingling warmth that really adds to the mouth feel of the recipe overall.
Based on the sexiest Borg in the Delta Quadrant, I introduce a dark and addictive eliquid that brings order to chaos---"The Collective". Part 3 in my Seven Of Nine/Borg Trilogy.
This recipe is an assimilation of really oddball & unique flavors. I mean, who the hell would make a Maryjane-Pistachio Custard? Good fresh out of the gate, but of course it begins to shine after a week or more. Personally, I prefer it fresh(weird, I know!)!
My choice of TFA Mary Jane is obvious, and a mere 2% plays very well with the other ingredients. Any more than 2% and I'm feeling like I'm vaping Scotch Tape® flavored eliquid.
I still felt as though the Mary Jane needed a counter-balance in order to become 'fuller'/more authentic tasting. And TFA RY4 Double performed the task perfectly. This is not an RY4 mix by any means, so I kept the percentage at 2.5%.
Again, another obvious player here is TFA Pistachio. In combination with the RY4 & Mary Jane it brings out an almost "ashy" though nutty flavor. And I just love TFAs version of pistachio above all others.
JF Dulce De Leche & CAP Vanilla Custard v1 obviously provide a nice thick custard base. At 5%, the custard's egginess is restrained somewhat and doesn't "bogart" the entire mix!
CAP Cinnamon Danish Swirl at 0.5% adds a bit of depth to TFA's Mary Jane. It's a clever magician that can perform a pretty cool disappearing act at wattages around 45-55. Increase wattage to 63 or higher and the cinnamon comes out more, but only as a supporting flavoring.
Armpit steeped for 1 hour for perfection hehe
Star Trek: Voyager & all its' characters are the sole property of Paramount. No profit has been made on this recipe.
A whole milk with a smooth horchata back note and a touch of cinnamon.
I designed this to be milk forward and have a creamy milk mouth feel with horchata, not overly powered but strong enough for a great balance.
(Best after two weeks, I do not recommend S&V.)
FA Cream fresh.
The whole milk base flavor and mouthfeel.
Cap vanilla custard.
This helps support the cream fresh and horchata as a base, texture and a sweeter helps blend the two flavors. Helps smooth out the horchata.
At 3% it's perfect for blending with the other ingredients. Stands out over the vanilla custard and CDS but doesn't over power the cream fresh and really feels like a creamy milk with horchata.
Cap cinnamon danish swirl.
This is to just give the horchata a slight boost to make it a little more complex and the feel of a touch of cinnamon.
I'm proud of this recipe and I hope you like it.
I wanted to use my bottle of TFA Holida Spice, because...well it smells delicious, and I had no other uses for it really. It smells just like eggnog to me, with that delicious nutmeg smell, so I figured I would try to make something tasty out of it. Here's the breakdown of everything here. I may change stuff up, but I feel like this version is delicious enough to warrant a post. You can always up the Cin danish to get a little more kick out of it. It needs some time to steep, for everything to mend together but it is well worth it.
Cinnamon Danish Swirl + Holiday Spice = The eggnog spice section, I wanted to give a little spiced edge to the base because what's eggnog without a little bit of cinnamon? The danish swirl also contributes a little bit to the cookie aspect as well.
Madagascar + Milk and Honey + Vanilla Custard = This makes a super delicious creamy filling to it, like an actual eggnog feel, thick in all the right places, and a nice vanilla flavor. it blends really well with the holiday spice and cinnamon danish swirl to create that delicious eggnog taste.
Sugar Cookie = Well it's an Eggnog Sugar cookie, so of course I needed to use this, it's delicious, creamy, sweet, the perfect component.
Another recipe I made while watching Pineapple Express one lonely Autumn night last year. The idea with this one was to make a tangerine cinnamon sugar cookie with a bit of powdered sugar on top.
Again, don't really have flavor notes for this one, but it did turn out wonderfully. It's a delicious mess, and it's one of my favorites. I regularly keep this in my rotation of juices.
The general gist is that we use CAP Sugar Cookie as the base, throw in some cinnamon with CAP CDS, throw tangerine in with CAP Sweet Tangerine and FW Tangerine, and finish it off with some buttery goodness with CAP Butter Cream and throw some powdered sugarriness on top with FA Meringue.
CAP Churro at 4% is a solid foundation to start off of. The concentrate isn't the best by itself, but if we modify it a bit, it can be good.
First, I thought it needed a bit more cinnamon. I decided on CAP CDS at 1%. Used here, it adds the cinnamon that we are looking for, and not an overbearing amount of it. With an added benefit of some bakery notes, it worked wonderfully.
CAP Sugar Cookie at 1% is used to do two things here. First, I think it makes the churros more airy. Second, it adds sugary goodness to the churros that I believe was also needed. Honestly, CAP Sugar Cookie an have a place in any bakery type recipe, and it works great here.
TFA VBIC at 2% is used to add a bit of vanilla, and a slight eggy note. I'm not sure about you all, but for some reason TFA VBIC gives off a slight eggy note to me. Either way, it does the trick.
This is my take on a snickerdoodle Doughnut. I found the recipe online and after making the doughnuts for my family and myself, I really wanted to transfer that taste into a vape.
I used FA Zeppola, FW Cake Batter Dip and FW Bavarian Cream as my doughnut base.
For the snickerdoodle I used CAP Sugar Cookie and CAP Cinnamon Danish Swirl.
I used the TPA Carmel in this recipe to blend the two together.
The cinnamon danish swirl can be adjusted depending on your preferences. I found that using it at 1.5 was a good balance and did not make it overpowering.
The sucralose is optional in this mix and can be left out if preferred.
So I wanted to use up FA Zeppola in something, so I started looking at fried desserts, and found this one!
HS Pumpkin Pie is perfect for the rich pumpkin flavor, although it requires a bit of a steep to get those sour off flavors and for it to really start filling out to the creamy pumpkin it is, the steep time is worth it. It's a weaker Hangsen flavor, but really good. there are really no spice flavorings in it, it's just straight pumpkin pie filling. I'm dropping it from 6 to 4, because I think it's a bit too strong here. I still need to test it, it may be good, may be too strong. But the fritter aspect seems a bit lost sometimes when vaping and not consistent.
I added Cinnamon Danish to give it some spice, and help fill out the bready part of the fritter. After some time the Zeppola really takes over and the pumpkin takes shape into the baked aspect, tastes like a pumpkin cake with some sugar on top.
The picture/recipe I derived this from has some ice cream paired with it, so I decided to throw in VBIC and Vanilla Custard for some creaminess, kind of like a side of ice cream with each bite, but I think it really helps out the mix altogether. I only tried it a few days after I mixed it, and all I could taste was pumpkin, tried it 10 days after mixing and now it's way in the back. I'm very pleased with this, probably going to go through the little of the 10mL I have left and mix up something more long term. I may keep updating this but for now I really like where it's at.
From @Queuetue : I find boston rounds to be the very best bottles for mixing and temporary storage. I use them for my VG and PG as well as on the scale while I'm making a mix. With a top that's easy to fill, easy to cap and with minimal access to air, I keep a bunch on hand for unflavored base, or whatever project I may be up to for handy, quick access.
The tip is small enough to use with most top-fill RTAs or RDAs as well.
