An uber creamy panna cotta drenched in a vibrant forrest fruit coulis.
This is a delectable Panna cotta, with added zing, demonstrating the simplicity of creating an simple, yet complex tasting juice using 3 or 4 quality ingredients. The yoghurt isn’t entirely necessary but it adds an additional layer of complexity to take the base from good to magnificent...
MB Panna Cotta is described as a “Creamy and soft panna cotta dessert with soft cream and hint of raspberry and a touch of vanilla” which perfectly surmises this gem. I picked up an unexpected nutty/malty note which keeps this from being flat but may take some by surprise. Although the malty note is not unpleasant, it may not fit into delicate recipes where a true, plain panna cotta is the desired profile. In this recipe however, it adds depth and marries beautifully with the dark & earthy berry layer.
I added a smidgen of FW Yoghurt to cut through the creaminess and add a bit of ‘zing’ to the Panna cotta base. This can be omitted if you prefer a fuller, creamier vape but I believe the two compliments one another perfectly.
The fruit layer is not a new revelation, but this combo just works so stunningly, that it was the obvious choice as the crowning jewel to adorn our lionheart.
The hint of raspberry in the panna cotta is just enough to compliment the fruit combo and sits nicely in the background.
WS23 optional at 0.25% to emulate a cold version, and works a treat here.
The cream needs at least 7 days to find its happy place. 2 weeks is better...

My entry for mixer's club from the reddit diy ejuice for dec '18. I was surprised by the reception that was positive. This is still a work in progress because I feel like there's still some places I'd like to take this especially based on the feedback I got.
FA Gin & Blackcurrant. This started right out of the box with a pairing of FA Gin and Black Currant. If you want a simple berry cocktail, I'd try FA gin at 2% with Black currant at 1%. I enjoyed this for some time because I felt the citrus notes gave me a grapefruit-y feel and I decided to pursue that in adding the next layers. To me, this has been my base start for all my gin drinks. FA Gin is described as juniper heavy and booze light. I love it. i bumped it up to 3% here because at 2% with the other flavors it just wasn't shining through enough. In simpler mixes, I always keep it at 2%.
CAP Mixed berry & TPA DragonFruit - This was added to give a nondescript boost to the berry flavor in the profile and add a touch of sweetness. DF was added because the whole thing got too dry. You could probably swap the MB with different fruits for a change and DF out with whatever you prefer to use to add juiciness. I went with tried and true and it worked fine enough I didn't feel the need to uncover those rocks.
CAP Sweet Guava - added to boost the grapefruit notes, sweetness and to play off the berries. I think it worked well here and probably wouldn't swap it out, myself. It maybe wasn't as successful in boosting the grapefruit notes as it was in just making this a more rounded vape.
INW Lemon Mix & FA Lime Tahity CP - This ratio (0.25:0.5) is my standard lemon/lime wedge for drinks. It's aggressive and lasts through a steep, (though the lime fades more for me). This is swappable in my opinion. DIY, baby.
Coolant - I felt Polar blast worked well here. Adjust to taste.
Variant: Adding 2-3% VT Botanical Gin and lowering FA Gin to 2% makes this a much boozier vape. Adding 2% VT tonic water for a more realistic cocktail taste but without that effervescent pop.
Enjoy and leave feedback/suggestions as you like. It's always appreciated.
Profile - Juicy and authentic watermelon mixed with a combination of red berries
FLV Watermelon / FLV Wild Melon - I find FLW Watermelon a very forgiving flavour. It can be used at low percentages as an additive role or as the main role. At 4%, stays right at the front note without messing the overall balance of the profile. It's the only watermelon I enjoy because it's authentic, juicy and doesn't fade so much especially at this percentage. Next, FLV Wild Melon to give a little more body to the Watermelon itself.
TPA Dragonfruit / TPA Honeydew - Both flavours make this profile even juicier and TPA Dragonfruit helps a lot here creating a bond between the watermelon and the berries.
FA Forest Mix / CAP Harvest Berry - Both percentages for my taste are just enough to be present in this profile. If I go higher, I start to get plastic off-notes especially with CAP Harvest Berry. Combined, the blackcurrant and the raspberry are present while the blueberry and the strawberry note stays right at the back being slightly present aswell.
CAP Super Sweet - Optional here but in this case, creates a more full mouthfeel.
Just playing around with cap jelly candy to experience what does. I like cap harvest berries better than fa forest fruit to me it taste like dirt. I can pick it out of a 10 ingredient recipe. So harvest berries was my only option. Didnt set out to make anything special, I just needed something quick.
Kiwi Berry Cream
I used CAP Harvest Berry & INW Shisha Strawberry. For the berry note in the mix.
FW Kiwi: I liked it more than FA in here. It is slightly tart & a little on the candied side but it goes well with INW Shisha Strawberry IMO.
For the CREAM I used my FAVORITE FLV Cream & paired it with OOO Marshmallow Vanilla to thicken up the the cream a bit & to round off the edges of the fruits.
