The Floradora is a classic cocktail that you might not know, but you should know because it is a truly fabulous (and rather sexy) gin drink. It is semi-sweet, tall, refreshing, and beautifully pink. One might even call the Floradora the "original girly drink."
The cocktail was named after the first Broadway musical hit comedy of the same name in the early 1900s. The name was originally spelled "Florodora" following the show name and the cocktail was a hit among New York's high society up through the 1950s.
Originally, the drink was made with raspberry syrup, but now uses framboise liqueur (raspberry-flavored) almost exclusively. There are a number of raspberry liqueurs available with Chambord (black raspberry) being the most common poured into today's Floradora cocktails.
FA Gin is an uber realistic gin which perfectly encapsulates that familiar and distinct juniper flavor. This is the main flavor note of the cocktail and pulls through beautifully without overpowering.
The raspberry combo has been my go-to for years and just works so well here. Authentic, slightly tart and semi sweet raspberry goodness.
TPA Ginger ale can be a bitch but used low, it provides just the right amount of a ginger ale vibe without annihilating the rest of the ingredients.
A wedge of lemon and handful of ice tops of our cocktail perfectly.
I've been on the search for a nice Grapefruit soda, and failing to find one, I thought I'd give it a go.
I saw OOO Squirts Soda which is the prime flavor in this case, but I felt it need a little more support.
I like a heavy grapefruit flavor so borrowing from my favorite Developed Recipe - Mellow Pomelo I used the combination of FW Ruby Red and VT Honey Pomelo. I tried a couple of other combinations and always came back to this duo.
To support the soda side of things there's nothing better than FLV Citrus soda and a healthy dose of CAP Lemon Lime to really bring the soda forward and blend some citrus into the mix. For a more rounded soda flavor.
A dash of Super Sweet to round things out a bit.
You can add .25% WS-23 if you like, but I prefer it without.
It seems to be the thing today to list what you are testing your recipe with, so here you go. Series Mech, .3 ohm dual round wire at about 250 Watts on a Kennedy RDA.
In Australia I associate summer with fresh mangoes.
I looked at my wall, grabbed some flavours and threw them together. I didn't change flavourings or percentages from that so likely there is a better way to make this but I like it enough as is to share.
For me this is the perfect amount of saturation, richness and mouthfeel.
If you have and EXTREMELY sensitive throat you might think its bordering on harsh off the shake but there is no harshness for me especially after 24 hours.
As I said, I didn't play with this at all so feel free to make it better or change it up and let me know what you did.
I vaped this exclusively on a Citadel (after market driptip) with a dual core fused clapton 0.25ohms @45w (3.4v)
If you like bubblegum flavors then look no further than MB American Bubblegum. It is a perfect pink bubblegum flavor. I combine it with FA marshmallow to add a little sticky sweetness that I think it needs for authenticity.
The strawberry blueberry pairing is a legendary berry combo. I’ve added a little CAP lemon lime to brighten up those berries, make sure they stick around through the steep and get a layer of separation between the berry and bubblegum note.
Bubblegum needs a good amount of sweetener too it. I suggest adding more sweetener than you normally would.

Unknown to Kitu5, I was assigned to make something from our common flavors.
"Flavor: TPA Mocha (i have a metric f**ton of this...i'd like to use it)
Bonus brownie points if you can also use OoO Vanilla Frosting, cos also have a shtton of this.
Eh, either some decadent frilly coffee bullsh*t, Something nifty and dessert-like...or mebbe sneak in a hint of tobacco? Just something that'll finally give me an excuse to start killing the hell outta this that's yummy."
Unfortunately, I don't own TPA Mocha yet so my only option was the latter while keeping in mind that one could add Mocha later on to end up with something similar to a tiramisu. Or vape it on it's own.
Update: After Kitus' review I decided to add the agreed upon 1% tpa mocha. Enjoy!
This is something that my mother and grandmother used to make for special occasions - not only weddings but baby showers and birthdays too. There are a few variants of this recipe - the "leaded" one contains pink champagne instead of the traditional 7up. Some people make this with ginger ale, some add Hawaiian punch, and I have seen it with orange juice and pineapple juice. This reminds me of being a kid :-) Its a sweet juice, but it is meant to be. Enjoy a little blast from my past. PS - it really DOES need a week to steep.
A commercial version of an old mango recipe brought back to life with the addition of Wonder flavors peach gummy candy and island mango it's sweet and flavorfull and candyish works well with tanks and duel coil rda's this is in your face mango could work well with high nicotine salts for a pod system..🥭🐻
CAP Lemon Lime is an ideal base for a limeade. It's pretty well balanced but you get a lot of the lime up front and the lemon sticks around through the exhale. It's sweet, not sour or bitter and has a good amount of body.
I've added FA Marshmallow to round out the edges and give the profile a nice creamy head.
CAP Hibiscus is sticky and sweet. It's not a main note here but it does help everything around adding to the authenticity.
VTA Persian Lime is the star of this show. It is a zesty natural lime that sticks around through the steep. Very Good.
Some sweetener is essential for this recipe. I use CAP Super Sweet at 0.5% and I think this is a minimum.
