I love elements fresh squeeze, especially during these summer months. So I wondered, could I could improve on something I enjoy so much? I really enjoy it but I leave the verdict up to you!
Caps juicy Orange: I started with the Orange of course. I wanted a juicy sweet Orange with a hint of authenticity and caps juicy Orange is just that.
Ecto cooler type: this hi c inspired flavor works so well with Orange that it was a natural selection in my thought process. It adds to the sweetness and helps add punch to the juicy orange.
Shisha Strawberry and red touch: here's where the remix part comes in. I wanted something to add to the fruitiness without taking over the Orange and add a bit of juicy flavor to the mix and these strawberries do just that. I love these in tandem and they are just the supporting note I needed to give it a fruity inhale.
Super sweet: I'm remixing a commercial juice that's known to have loads of sweetener. I believe I used far less than they prob do but got the same effect by accentuating the Orange with the strawberries and ecto cooler. That said still went 1% here.
In closing I feel I've remixed this quite nicely. I've spent nearly 2 months working on it trying different fruits for accents and different levels of sweetener to get it down as low as possible without losing that sweetness we all associate with commercial juice. I hope you will give it a go and leave any and all feedback.
Nashville, TN. On a secluded stretch of road, there is a beautiful little diner that pays homage to the old trucker stops where weary travelers can get a nice home-cooked meal. This diner is called Loveless Cafe, and it is one of the greatest places on Earth. With homemade biscuits made fresh every day, delicious coffee, and some of the greatest breakfast I've ever had, this diner is the greatest example of southern hospitality I've found during my trips to Tennessee. While I am not a fan of dairy milk, Loveless creates a variety of different flavoured milks that are all absolutely delicious. Obviously as mixers, we constantly see those strawberry milk, banana milk, and blueberry milk recipes almost every other day on ATF. However, Loveless stands out with something a little different, an orange milk. Of course, orange cream recipes are nothing new, but they tend to focus more on the orange note, or creating something like an Orange Dream ice cream bar. This recipe is a straight up dairy milk with orange accents, and it's one of my favourite recipes I've come up with, and the product of a few weeks of meddling.
TPA Orange Cream / FA Blood Orange / CAP Juicy Orange - TPA Orange Cream is a great concentrate, but one that is easy to fuck up. With too little, we won't taste much of anything, and with too much, we're stuck with some really bitter and unpleasant off notes of orange rind and soured milk. At 2.5%, we are getting close to this concentrate's ceiling, but it works beautifully. Here we get a nice base to build the orange milk off of. Slightly sweet orange flavour, heavy cream notes, and just a touch of sugar. Using FA Blood Orange at 1.25%, we get a nice punch in the mouth of tart oranges. This helps push the fruit notes through the remaining cream concentrates, and leaves us with something that hits those orange notes on the inhale, but fades away to give room for the sweet creams on the exhale. Finally, CAP Juicy Orange is one of my favourites, for it tastes EXACTLY like orange juice. It's a tough flavour on it's own, for it has a slight waxiness on the mouthfeel. But with all of the other oranges in here, it just gives us a little extra wetness to the fruit notes.
FLV Cream / FA Vienna Cream / FW Hazelnut - these three concentrates bind together to help us get a pretty accurate dairy milk base. The FLV Cream is one of the best cream concentrates on the market. Neutral, inoffensive, and full of mouthfeel. We get subtle notes of dairy maltiness in FLV Cream, but we're mainly using it here to create a nice, thick, unsweetened milk. The use of FA Vienna Cream brings some added sweetness to the mix, while suggesting the malt note we need to say this is a dairy milk recipe. Finally, the use of FW Hazelnut is in here to push that accurate nuttiness into the milk profile. Take a sip of plain dairy milk, and then take a whiff of FW Hazelnut, and try to tell me you don't need this concentrate in a milk recipe. I love this combination of flavours, and I think it creates something absolutely perfect for any recipe calling for dairy milk.
CAP Vanilla Bean Ice Cream - while this isn't an ice cream recipe, I don't find CAP VBIC to be an ice cream concentrate. For this recipe, the inherent vanilla notes found in this concentrate play better than using something like INW Shisha Vanilla, or really anything that is specifically JUST vanilla. With those concentrates, we get too much vanilla infused into the recipe, and it begins to take over the subtle orange notes. Instead, using CAP VBIC adds some more mouthfeel to the mix, while giving us just a touch of vanilla extract that complement the oranges so well.
TPA Honeysuckle - this was a bit of a stretch, for the original orange milk from Loveless does not have any floral notes or anything like that. But, TPA Honeysuckle is something special, and while I can't entirely pinpoint WHAT the flavour itself is, I notice how it helps keep the creams separated from the oranges, and it helps us achieve that goal to have a citrus fruit inhale, and a heavy sweet milk exhale. Honeysuckle seems to help this separation remain even after a steep.
Steep Time - delicious as a shake and vape, you know me, that's how I like my recipes. After about 4 days, everything gets to the best it'll be. The oranges meld together to create a bright, juicy, and slightly rind-y orange profile. The creams reach their peak and have a bold flavour, rich vanilla note, and delicious sugary sweetness. Overall, 4 days is where this recipe hits it's stride, but again, you can get in on it straight away.
If you've been to Loveless Cafe, you know why this place feels like Heaven, and I truly hope I've done justice to it's delicious orange milk.
Shake and vape certified.
I never really delve into the world of tropical treats and I had some flavours that I was yet to try. I was hoping for a juicy tropical punch with a bit of a creamy back end, did some research and then put this together and was surprised. It's yummy delicious.
It's a sweet juicy orange juice, subtle pineapple with hint of coconut and a slight and very faint bit of strawberry, the strawberry is admittedly a little lost, however, I don't want to remove it as I like what this is. Then on the exhale its less orange and a bit more cream. Then when you've finished your exhale, you get this faint banana around your mouth with some coconut sat at the back. All round, I like it and you might too!
SUBBING - the only one I can think of is switching Red Touch for TFA Strawberry Ripe/Strawberry but maybe drop it to just 2%. I haven't tried it though and I don't really like the concept of subbing ingredients (BOOOOOOO!).
SHAKE THE SHIT OUT OF YOUR CONCENTRATES BEFORE MIXING, ESPECIALLY BLOOD ORANGE.
My version of the popular fruit drink "Orange Kool-Aid"
So about a year ago, I tried my hand at mixing up a recipe that was inspired by that Banana/Pineapple/Orange juice blend that Dole makes. I had made a few adjustments since then, and found that the base from a year ago was still the best. Here is the most current iteration. It's a great shake and vape, but a little separated. Give it two days, and it's all melded together into something inoffensive, consistent, and my favourite ADV when I get burnt out on bakeries and the "heavier" mixes in my arsenal.
CAP Sweet Tangerine / CAP Juicy Orange - here's the orange juice base. These two flavours are great together, but carry some strangeness straight out of the gate. Juicy Orange has a little waxiness to it if you push it too high, and 2% is right about the threshold on that. If you pick up on that waxy note, dial it back half a percent. After an overnight steep though, most of that off note gets pushed aside. What we end up with is a really wet and bright orange juice base.
TPA Banana Cream / LA Banana Cream - you already know this is my go to ratio for bananas. The touch of LA helps push the accuracy of the banana note, while the TPA carries it home with the creamy sweetness. The mouthfeel of these two in tandem help emulate the mouthfeel of the real-world counterpart of this recipe. That Dole juice is almost like the middle ground between juice and smoothie. It's thicker and smoother than a typical glass of juice, and these two concentrates help get that aspect going in the right direction.
CAP Golden Pineapple / TPA Pineapple - here's your pineapples, the TPA is around to really give that bite of tartness you want, it cuts through the sweets so well in this mix. The CAP Golden was a new addition to the recipe, and just really helps dial back on some of that battery acid note you get from TPA Pineapple.
FA Fuji / TPA Marshmallow - the extras in this recipe are what really make it, in my opinion. The FA Fuji helps emulate the fact that almost every commercial made fruit juice on the market has apple juice in it as a base. While Fuji doesn't inherently taste like apple juice, at this low of a percentage, you get the idea of it, while still having one of the best fruit emulsifiers we have available. The Fuji brightens up the oranges, gives some depth to the banana, and helps make the pineapples less one-dimensional. TPA Marshmallow is our sweetener, and helps add to that mouthfeel you get from the banana creams. Using TPA Marshmallow will push this recipe right into the realm of accuracy to the real fruit juice blend. Thick, creamy, and sweet.
TPA Koolada (OPTIONAL) - use to taste. If you like Koolada, it really helps this recipe come together. Without Koolada, it's still good, but adding a few drops just pushes it to a whole new level. Because, well, let's be honest, who the fuck likes drinking warm orange juice?
I originally made this with different strawberry blends but this is really nice after a good 5 day steep.
I built this house with bare hands and bricks, concrete and spit. Then I filled it with Fuzzy Love...
The dimensional crack for the haters is stuffed but just for mentioning love, that fuzzy love. For the moments we lost and the fuzz we forgot.. Keep it FULL MIGHTY.. Much FUZZ.
I also have a Pineapple and Cherry version of this as well..
I tried too look up tfa max dew but nobody has used so I had too type citrus punch for the mtn dew flavor
TFA orange cream is the main flavor in this and will the creamy orange soda
CAP it will help brighten up the orange cream and make it feel like a better orange flavor
Koolada will give it the chill factor and make it seem like there is fizz in the soda
guys mix this up its a perfect S&V and it taste just like sodalicious orange cream soda
