this recipe is based on ID10-T's Paradise Cream!
Most of the credit goes out to him.
It basically just took the idea of Mango & Vanilla and build Carrot and Pineapple on top of it.
ID10-T's original recipe also contains FA Violet which turn the recipe into a really good purple mango drink.
It's a fantastic recipe, i really love it and i think i vaped close to a liter of it when it still was available at Chef's.
My version is a more tart, kinde "green" version of it.
VSO Carrot has this vegetable tang to itbut with pineapple it turns into a nice tart, almost sour component.
You can sub out INW Shisha Vanilla to WF Vanilla Cream Extra for a slight different Vanilla bump
I was going for a big bowl of strawberries with a sugar syrup.
Strawberries, Strawberry gummy candy to add a contrasting candy strawberry, and Glazed Strawberries to add a little more depth and help to the sugar syrup note. I also wanted to add a little more strawberry here. I started with HC Fresh Strawberry, but hearing that it had been discontinued, I wanted to swap it out. I still prefer HC for this recipe, I'll just have to horde what's left of my stock. INW Shisha does a good job, but really almost any strawberry I think can work here as long as it has a little punch to it. I'll probably try some other strawberries in the future, but here it is as it stands.
Forest Fruits and Golden Pineapple to add some fruit depth.
Golden Syrup and Vanilla Swirl to round out the syrup and to help in blending and mouth feel.
One of my favorite flavors was Mr. Magic from BlueDot. It's a pineapple, strawberry, and coconut flavor profile but different from the Lava Flow recipes that I tried out.
I went through many different pineapple combinations to find something that's sweet, tart, and acidic. I believe the combination of these 3 pineapples brings a great flavor profile to the table where there's a tiny bit of added funk on the backend from the SSA Thai Pineapple. The original doesn't have this, but I think it works better than in the original. The original likely used CAP Golden Pineapple and TFA Pineapple for acidity, but I did not have TFA so I wanted to replicate the acidity another way.
Most Lava Flow recipes will have strawberry at the forefront, but this has pineapple at the forefront instead. I tried many different combinations of strawberries but came back to this one. The way the TFA strawberry fades after a few days is similar to how the original juice is. The strawberry fades but the deeper fruity notes stay and melds it all together. I tried different combinations of JF Strawberry Sweet, INW Shisha Strawberry, CNV Strawberry, FA Red Touch, and WF Strawberry Baked.
Some of the other strawberries taste better off the shake, but I found that none of them taste as good (to me) after a few days. The way TFA fades is exactly what I was going after, but if you're not looking for a flavor that fades something like JF Strawberry Sweet might be a better option.
FLV Sweet Coconut and FA Coco just weren't coming through enough on a tank for me, so I went with more prominent coconut flavors. I know there are some suntan lotion tasters out there and 1% coconut extra might be too much for you. You can adjust down to 0.75% or 0.5% to help with that if needed. I find that as the strawberry fades, so does the slight suntan lotion taste.
Everything should come together after about 2 days of steeping. The juice might not be the most creative or tasty, but it was a long-term ADV for me and I wanted to have it on hand when I wanted that profile. It's tangy, acidic, and sweet with some coconut and fruit notes.
If you've been looking for a tropical vape and like pineapples, give this one a try! It works great in a sub-ohm tank and I'd imagine does well in a pod as well. It did not translate well to an RDA for me. I tested on a Fireluke FreeMax 2 @ 27 watts with 0.5ohm coils.
The Mai Tai is one of the most famous Tiki drinks in the world. Composed of rum, orange curaçao, fresh lime juice and orgeat (almond syrup), it’s dominated cocktail menu's for decades. Pineapple juice was a later improvisation, never part of the original base. According to legend, the name Mai Tai came from the first person to ever try the cocktail who shouted “Mai Tai!” which means “the best—out of this world” in Tahitian.
I made a conscious depiction, from the onset, to stick to "classic" flavours to pay homage to this classic cocktail. I admit that some of the new kids on the block (MB, VT, etc) can serve as a suitable analogue to some of these flavours but I wanted to keep it as authentic & traditional as possible.
Pineapple duo - a classic, combo of the godfathers of pineapple in INW & Cap Golden. This combo just works so well together and lays a rock solid foundation. Authentic, fresh & ripe pineapple = no more, no less...
Shisha Orange is a full, juicy, fresh orange with no artificial notes. This is a straight up orange without the excessive acidic notes (one extreme) or cloying sweetness (other extreme) present in many orange concentrates. There is a fabulous zesty back note which emphasizes the authenticity perfectly. Did I mention that it does not fade - ever!
Lime Tahity is the obvious choice, given its name!... There's not much more I can say about this phenom other than that it is a refreshing, slightly tart, fresh & authentic lime juice.
FA Almond replicates the orgeat, and in reality struggles a bit to push through the relatively strong fruit notes. It announces itself more prominently after a couple of days and sits proudly in the background. The addition of a touch of sweetener boosts the nuttiness slightly.
FA Jamaica rounds off our captivating cocktail and by adding the traditional rum forward taste profile. Feel free to drop the rum to 0.5 for a less rum prominent experience.
Sweeten to taste & enjoy!
