Loved Staybert’s Citraspberry Soda recipe, but don’t like INW raspberry so I subbed it for FA strawberry, added FA Forest Fruit and left out the WS-23. Staybert made an amazing recipe and citrus soda base, it’s pure genius!

I recently got FLV Citrus Soda - and it inspired me to play around with my previous Kiwi/Lemon recipe - and I'm quite happy with the results.
FA Kiwi & VT Sour Lemon - are here to stay, as I think they're a great combo.
CAP Lemon Lime - brings some extra zing into the mix.
LA Lemonade - helps brighten up the other citrus flavors.
FLV Citrus Soda - to add that fizz illusion - I kept it low, as I feel it can quickly dominate the mix, and also get a bit soapy at higher percentages.
Works as a shake 'n vape!
I use 70/30 - VG/PG at 3mg

This is not ment to be mixed as is, I mean, it could and it'll taste like a sprite, which of course isn't all that bad, but can get boring pretty fast on its own. The purpose of me sharing this is for you to use as base to put your own fruits or other flavors on top.
First of all, my take on achieving a "fizzy vibe" in a recipe... As true effervescence is not (yet) possible to achieve in vape form, I feel that the sprite esque citrus notes from those flavors is as close as you can get to vaping a soda. Seeing as lemon/lime pairs well with pretty much any fruit out there, you'll be able to do a lot with this base.
The starting % are pretty low, but it's usually where I start when I make a new mix.
FLV Citrus Soda at 1.25% is where I start to get that "fizzy" feeling from it. I think it's usually best between 1-2% depending on what your goals are and what other flavors your mix it with.
CAP Lemon Lime is just straight up sprite almost. It's usually what I start to add more of if I feel the "fizz" is missing, and I think it works best between 1-3%.
WS-23 as cooling works extremely well here to really sell that cold fizzy vibe. If you haven't used it before, start at 0.25%. Personally I do 0.5% - 1% depending on current mood.
I don't have anything against sweetener really, but I don't like using it with this base. I mean it's definitley still good, and it can probably help a lot of other flavors in different ways so I'm not saying don't use it. I do however think it takes away the tanginess of the citrus flavors, thus making it slightly less fizzy. It's a personal preference though, but I never use it with this base. Usually other fruits, florals, etc can be used as sweeteners or are inheretly sweet themselves.
Other good flavors:
VT Fizzy Sherbet can be used in combination with any of the other too, around 1-4% is usually where I use this, depending on what else is in the mix of course.
FA Aurora also great lemon/lime flavor that can be used together with with FLV Citrus Soda or VT Fizzy Sherbet, use between 0.5-2%.
FLV Lime be careful with this one, it's very potent. Start at 0.2%
FLV Pink Guava the grapefruit note from this flavor can also help boost FLV Citrus Soda, that extra tang is usually needed if you want a soda type recipe. Seeing as this is not a lemon/lime flavor like the others, it's not pairing compatible with as many other flavors. But for the right recipe, this can be amazing.
Great flavors, but bad for making a soda:
FA Lime (Tahity) Cold Pressed & VT Persian Lime - don't get me wrong, both of these are GREAT flavors for most purposes, but they are terrible to use in combination with FLV Citrus Soda. What they do is just put a "lid" on the fizzy notes. Makes everything flat in a sense. They add a great lime note, but if you use them high enough, they will take all the carbonated vibes out of the equation. I won't say don't use them, but I think there are better alternatives if you want to boost the lime in this scenario.
Grape Hard Candy Lemonade
Grapey purple syrup served on a bubbly super sweetened lemonade.
Super sugary sweet, purply and fresh.
Super straight forward and simple recipe i wanted to post for halloween. ( yes, purple party drinks remind me of halloween)
Ps: Nothing scares more a vaper than the amount of sweetener in this recipe.
Although I'm sharing this recipe, it was not my idea, but ID10-T's. However, he insisted that it's more my recipe than his and that I should share it. My only contribution was letting him know of a flavour order I made for a bunch of Mango concentrates we were discussing, along with FLV Cranberry and CAP Lemon Lime to try out his 1-2-3 Cranberry Sprite recipe. By doing so, it gave the Mango Man himself an idea - swapping out the FLV Cranberry with FLV Mango, to create 1-2-3 Mango Sprite...and it didn't disappoint. The Mango/Lemon/Lime combo works wonders.
Another great example of simple, yet effective! Definitely something that can be tweaked/built upon to make it even more amazing e.g. INW Cactus/FA Pear to add some juiciness and WS-23 and/or Polar Blast because fizzy drinks should be enjoyed cold. Perhaps some sweetener, if desired.
In my list of quick flavor profiles that I'm often asked for pods/MTL vapes, pineapple is the most recent one. I decided to go for a pineapple juice, but I really wanted a sweet, strong and fleshy fruit.
WF Pineapple Candy/VT Sugar Loaf Pineapple/CAP Golden Pineapple = the pineapple. WF pineapple candy comes off strong, but it settles down after a couple of days and it's sweet. Sugar Loaf has good mouthfeel and middle body qualities and Golden Pineapple is good for juices yet loyal to the fruit.
CAP Lemon Lime/WF African Horned Cucumber = the African horned cucumber is the juice in this recipe. It acts a bit like TPA Dragon Fruit if you will. Lemon Lime is a great trick to make your tropical fruits pop, and pineapple is no exception.
It'll work in 50VG/50PG for a pod/MTL vape and at 70VG/30PG for sub-ohm tanks and RTA/RDAs.
Enjoy, be queer and vape on!

A thick scoop of vanilla ice cream plunked down into a tall glass of sweet and tangy cherry soda. We all float down here.
Although, unlike the Paradise Cream, no one has asked for this discontinued as a one-shot by Chef's Flavours, here it is, anyway. This recipe was inspired by trying a soft drink called "Cheerwine" and imaging how it would be as a float. I needed a lot of candy cherry, so I pushed INW Cherries as far as could without getting medicinal off notes, then added as much FA Black Cherry as I could darken it with and still avoid that yuck. Still not enough cherry, but TFA Pomegranate worked very well to fill in the cherry to get where it needed to go without any issues. I used CAP Lemon Lime for the tart, citrusy quality of the soda. TFA Sweet And Tart served three purposes: More sweetness, more tartness, and that powdery aspect to try to emulate what bubbles would remain in the soda after ice cream was floated in it. You have to remember, this was before VT Fizzy Sherbet or FLV Citrus Soda existed. TFA VBIC was an easy route to ice cream, with TFA Whipped Cream the foamy part where ice cream meets soda. As with the Paradise Cream, I've been meaning to improve the recipe for some time now and then release the improved version... and just haven't gotten around to it. As with the Paradise Cream, when I do, it's definitely going to have the TFA VBIC replaced with LB's Vanilla Ice Cream. It might also a need touch of HS French Vanilla Ice Cream , and replacing TFA Whipped Cream with FLV's version. That combination of LB Vanilla Ice Cream, HS French Vanilla Ice Cream, and FLV Whipped Cream worked so well in TamVapes' Jacked Up Sundae. Of course that might take some rebalancing of the other ingredients, but I'm unlikely to abandon them, even for the likes of FLV CItrus Soda or VT Fizzy Sherbet. They WORK here. But until that all gets sorted out, I hope anyone who is interested enjoys the original recipe.
It's been a year or probably longer since I've had the original. What I remember is it was a dry, soft sugar cookie with a very light lemon glaze note.
I've tried with this with OOO Powdered Sugar in lieu of LA Cream Cheese Icing and a combo of the two and I just can't make Powdered Sugar work.
CAP Sugar Cookie seems a bit high in percentage, but I think it shines at 5% in this recipe. You get all the texture and softness of a sugar cookie.
CAP Lemon Lime and TFA Lemonade Cookie give a nice light lemon note. You don't want it to be overpowering, the original was just recognizable enough as not to be cloying.
