A sour and sweet Apple beer, with accents of cinnamon and strawberry.
I came up with this after trying 5 other variations. I wanted to make something that was very unique to the judges. It's not easy to do when every one is going to use half of the same flavors. So I found my weirdest flavor. The one that doesn't taste like any other flavor. DONUTS by Flavorah. It's a spot on beer flavor to me. It's strong and a steep is needed for this one. Fuji is a great Apple flavor for this recipe. It's strong enough to stand up with the Flavorah donuts (beer actually) flavor. The strawberry is used as a sweet fruity accent. The cinnamon is very light but it makes the Apple much more enjoyable. Cinnamon danish swirl can be very strong to so it worked well in this recipe as another accent to the beer. The strawberry ripe adds a sweetness and fruity note. The sweet fruit in this recipe really help making the beer complex and enjoyable. The frosted donut adds a powdered sugar taste to help bring out the sweetness of strawberry ripe. The sugar cookie is another sweet bakery flavor I chose to add sweetness to the beer. It also adds some bakery notes to the beer to help soften the yeast beer flavor.
This juice must steep for at least a week. The longer the better.
I'm excited to participate in the MIXXED contest. Thank you to the sponsors.
My entry aims to enhance the required Basket Ingredients and turn a good recipe into a great one!
Let me tell you about my selections. The TPA Strawberry compliments the TPA Strawberry Ripe very nicely. They make a more well rounded strawberry flavor together. This is important because strawberry is the main flavor of my recipe. Most recipes can benefit from having a creamy element added. I enjoy TPA Bavarian Cream. It is very versatile and always gives a nice creamy experience. Finally I added FA Cookie to enhance the bakery notes of the Cinnamon Danish Swirl and give the recipe more texture. This recipe is sweet and does not require any added sweetener.
I think my recipe is delicious and I'm happy to vape it. I love the apple and strawberry. The cream gives the vapor more thickness and the bakery notes round out the recipe and give it texture.
I am new to mixing. I recently quit smoking cigarettes by switching to vaping. I believe vaping is a healthier choice. For the last four months I have been spending most of my free time researching and experimenting with recipes. I have created 3 recipes of my own that I think are good and I am developing other recipes that are not finished yet. I currently have 64 flavors to work with. I already had all of the Basket Ingredients for the contest so it was easy for me to join in. I hope to win this contest. That would be a great way to get started mixing. Thank you for viewing my recipe.
What a great time I had crafting multiple variations of the basket ingredients. It was definitely a challenging experience, but what I finally settled on to present to the judges is a Maple Infused Apple Berry Brulee.
The Brulee is simply a baked custard. This is why I chose (I know...I know) CAP Vanilla Custard v1. Adding to the "baked" feel, I wanted a little more volume and sweetness to the custard - this is why I chose to add TPA Toasted Marshallow. I felt it was the perfect amount of "burnt" sweetness to play nicely with the custard. Adding in CAP CDS adds to the overall appeal of the custard while also giving the custard more of a rich spice.
Making the custard a little more playful, this is where the Apple-Berry combination comes into play. Image marinating freshly cut apple slices and strawberry slices in a bath of maple syrup. After a nice long marination period, this mixture is then intertwined within the custard mixture and then placed into the oven until completion. This is the experience I get with my vape.
I wanted to step outside of the box a little bit and add another layer of complexity within this baked custard mix. This is where the idea of adding maple came in to play. FA Maple is a flavor that can easily overpower a mix, but with the various basket ingredients it was easier to go on the higher side of the recommended percentage to allow it to be a relatively front-forward note.
I hope you all enjoy ... win or lose - I had a blast!
Cinnamon Apple Crunch Cereal. Steep 3 Days. Basket Ingredients: CAP CDS @1% kept the cinnamon where I wanted. It evenly spreads a nice amount of cinnamon throught the cereal. JF @1.5 wasnt going for if you were to bit into an apple but more like a light non distracting apple flavoring. Its there but not smacking you in the face. I tried using fa fuji as well and it just made the apple too sweet probably because of the next ingredient. Strawberry Ripe @1% this wouldnt probably be the first thing i used in this recipe but i knew i wasnt going to use it alone for an actual strawberry flavor(IMO its just not strong enough alone) but instead for its Ethyl Maltol. for the circumstances of the competition i worked in reverse and started high and kept cutting down till it wasnt muting the mix and it wasnt turning the fuji into something i didnt want. MY 3 ingredients: Cap Cereal 27 @4.5% my favorite cereal if i want a nice cereal crunch like berry crunch without the berry. to get more to the corn flake side this needs some Acetyl Pyrazine @.5 FA Meringue @1.5% because i cant imagine a cereal vape without meringue. evey1 knows this gives a nice sugary coating. Thank you guys love what ya are doing and appreciate all the info I get out of this community. Thanks for making it fun. Hope you enjoy!
Reminiscent of an orange Mounds bar. Smooth, creamy chocolate covered coconut orange candy.
While trying to create a recipe for this contest, I was aiming for something unique for the season of Fall. More precisely, I was aiming for using the 'colors' of Fall as opposed to using Fall 'flavors'. Orange, brown and white achieve that color spectrum for me.
I wanted a relaxing vape involving chocolate as a subtle note. Possibly even a back note. And that, in the beginning, was all I was sure of. As I was considering my options, I reached to open a Mounds candy bar(one of my favorites since childhood). As I bit into it tasting the smooth chocolate, sweet coconut and a nearly imperceptible hint of cinnamon, I swooned and sunk back into my couch totally relaxed and chilled out. My senses immediately awakened. I've only tasted that faint cinnamon in Mounds(specifically) and often wondered if it was only in my imagination, as other people I've known can't taste it at all. At any rate, it hit me like a truckload of....coconuts(pun intended)! I wanted to make an orange flavored Mounds bar eliquid. And one as relaxing as I find eating a Mounds bar to be. I've never worked with orange flavorings EVER, so this would be a very challenging task for me. Truthfully, I can't even think of a time when I even purchased an orange flavored eliquid.
I was very pleased this turned out exactly as I wanted on only my second formulation. I find it extremely pleasing to my palate and I hope you will too. On the inhale I taste coconut most prominently with a light mandarin orange. On the exhale, I taste a light coconut, stronger orange, and smooth creamy milk chocolate mixed with extremely light cinnamon at the back end. I found myself immediately mixing up a larger batch as I knew my first batch would never last long enough for even a week's steep(due to the TFA DCC recommended steep time).
I usually find coconut flavorings to be very harsh. But I believe the TFA Ripe Strawberry flavor not only enhanced the creaminess of the coconut...it also, to my surprise, eliminated the harshness of the coconut that has always been a turnoff for me. The FA Fuji always provides that 'candy' aspect to any recipe whether you are looking for candy apple or just looking to "candyize" any particular flavor, which in this case, was the orange. Fuji just adds a sort of "buttercream" candy sweetness to my mix.
This contest was a total surprise to me, as I never(on the surface) would have thought to add Strawberry Ripe, CAP CDS, or FA Fuji to a recipe if I was looking to create an orange Mounds-like flavor. But when forced to use these bastard basket flavors, I was forced to think of how to make them work for what I was aiming for. And that's something I would have never done on my own. Yes, if told to use "any" 3 flavorings plus 3 other flavorings, I would have created my Orange Mounds bar. But I seriously/homestly doubt it would ever taste as good as this mix does. Without those basket flavors, my new ADV would have never been developed. Thank you all so much for making me come out of my linear comfort zone!!
7 day steep recommended, though I find it delicious after only 2 days!!
*FA Fuji used as Jungle Flavors are not available in Canada.
I know, how unique is an apple fritter? If it wasn't so good, I would have selected a different entry. This is a warm buttery fritter that is just in time for fall. Here in Canada we have Tim Hortons for our coffee stop and they make a very simple fresh (not overly sweet) apple fritter I really wanted to recreate. I mix this at 30/70 PG/VG and let it steep a week.
CAP Cinnamon Danish Swirl- this has a rich spicy cinnamon base with it requiring a high enough percentage for all notes to come through against the buttery cream but not so much to get a mouthful of cinnamon. 3% was just right to get this.
FA Fuji- at higher percentages this can be nauseating but is still a main note in the profile. 1% gives a greener apple without over powering the recipe. It holds on the steep and allows for a fresh apple note to ring through.
TPA Strawberry Ripe- this will need a higher percentage than the apple to lend its sweetness and red strawberry back note. It gives us a bridge between the apple and danish swirl.
FW Sweet Cream- this is imperative for our buttery creaminess in the recipe. It takes some steep time to shine through but when it arrives it creates a balance in the recipe.
FW Salty Butter Balls- I have no idea what salty butterballs are but know this flavor well. It works very well with Cinnamon Danish Swirl and the very slight salty butter flavor adds a richness and spicy butter to the mix. There is also a brown sugar like note included with this flavor and does it without the burnt sugar taste found in other options.
FW Butter pecan- what is lacking in the Butter balls and sweet cream is found here. The final butterscotch like flavor in the butter pecan tops it all off. There is a subtle pecan flavor that lends well to the other ingredients and rounds it all out.
This is my entry for the Mixxed contest round one from beginner blending. I wanted to go against the grain and not do a bakery recipe with the basket ingredients. I combined two yogurts and cinnamon danish swirl to create a cinnamon roll yogurt. I then added strawberry and apple and threw them in a blender with meringue for creamy sweetness (not literally!) to create a strapple cinnamon smoothie. The two fruits are upfront on the inhale and the cinnamon roll yogurt come out on the exhale. Not your conventional smoothie, but a nice sweet fall treat. Enjoy
