"THE LAST DRAGON"
Based on Jamaican Sorrel Drink(which I make weekly!), this spicy & cool drink was only fitting to honor the exquisiteness of our beloved Drogon.
These are all the ingredients of the delicious & unique Christmas-time Jamaican Sorrel Drink.
Traditional Jamaican Sorrel uses actual Jamaican Sorrel(their native hibiscus) which can be purchased in any shop that sells Jamaican products. There is very little difference in flavor between American & Jamaican hibiscus in my opinion. The American type is much easier and cheaper to get ahold of.
Occasionally, I will add about 1/8 cup of Jamaican Rhum to mine(also traditional in Jamaican culture). I did not add it here, because frankly-I add so little that I can barely even taste it(I've never really enjoyed the effects of alcohol).
In the real life recipe that I will include after all my notes, I include rum measurement.
FLV LIME WEDGE is the ONLY freshly 'chopped' lime flavoring that compares to the real thing. Lime Cold Pressed, etc., does NOT mimic the taste of fresh chopped lime with these particular concentrates. Sorry. This flavoring is potent as hell, so one 15ml(or 10ml) bottle will likely last you at least a year!
CAP HIBISCUS was the only match for the flavor of dried Hibiscus buds that I usually order from Nuts(dot)com. I am only mentioning that site because it's the best bargain if you want to make the real life recipe. I've tried all other concentrates and they were pretty nasty here.
For my cracked pimento(called 'allspice' here in the States), I utilized CAP PUMPKIN PIE SPICE. TFA's version didn't even compare. I also buy my whole pimentos from Nuts(dot)com and crack them myself. Our powdered allspice in the supermarkets is pitiful in comparison.
I used only 1 drop of **FLV RICH CINNAMON per 20-30ml eliquid here. You don't want it to overpower anything...but you definitely want it flexing its' muscle.
VT GINGER ROOT is the key to getting this just right. In the real drink, I use anywhere from 1/4-1/3 cup of fresh peeled ginger root(depending on how much bite I want my sorrel to have). VT's version of Ginger Root is the most accurate. I even went as far as purchasing NF's ginger to try out(it was very close...but not a perfect fit & had an indescribable off note when mixed with these specific concentrates). And again...if you are making the real life recipe below? Powdered Ginger from your spice rack will not work. At all. Just don't do it.
WS-23 is not listed in the above recipe but was used at 2 drops per 20-30ml eliquid.
FLV SWEETNESS was used at a high 1.25% to mimic the sugar syrup added to sorrel drink.
STEEP:SNV-3 DAYS(I usually SNV it)
As always, I humbly ask that you don't produce this for commercial gain, as it was shared in good faith. And if you like this please rate it. Your ratings are the only way us mixers know if we are doing a good job or not. Thanks so much & enjoy!
I will include the recipe for this delicious drink below for anyone that wants to try it out. With the real drink, the longer you steep-the stronger the hibiscus flavor. I usually steep mine anywhere from 4 hours to 24 hours(it depends on my level of patience!).
Jamaican Sorrel Drink:
•2 cups Dried Hibiscus Flowers
•1 finely chopped peeled fresh lime(I pulse mine in a food processor)
•1/4-1/3 cup fresh ginger(peeled), chopped fine(I pulse with a food processor)
•1 1/2 to 2 teaspoons of cinnamon sugar or 1 cinnamon stick
•4-6 Cracked Pimento(I usually place between paper towels and give them one good whack with a hammer. You dont want them crushed, like allspice powder--you just want to crack them open. These babies are potent).
•2 cups white sugar.
•2 cups of water
•10 cups water
•a fine sieve
•OPTIONAL: 1/8-1/4 cup Jamaican Rhum
Place dried hibiscus flowers, ginger, lime, cinnamon sugar & allspice in large bowl or large pot & set aside.
In one small pot, bring 2 cups of water & 2 cups of sugar to a boil and remove from heat. Allow this to cool. It will be a thick sugar syrup.
In large pot, bring 10 cups of water to a boil. Pour over hibiscus flower mixture and allow to steep at least 4 hours(if steeping overnight, place in refrigerator).
After steeped to your preference, stir sugar syrup(this is also when I add my rum) into mixture. Final mixture must be run through a fine sieve before being poured into a 1 gallon pitcher and chilled. A regular strainer will not work. If you can't wait until your sorrel drink gets cold(like me), serve over ice. I generally make mine at night, so I can enjoy a glass over ice before bed, knowing that by morning, my pitcher in the fridge will be perfectly chilled with no need of added ice cubes.
Trust me...you have never tried any drink like this. It is highly addictive!!
This recipe is a Pumpkin Pie recipe fit with a soft sweetness, nice light and flaky crust, and a touch of spice. Perfect for Autumn time
This recipe was made for "(HS) Pumpkin Pie" FlavorBook Entry
Me and #folkart decided to do some pies. For this journey was a difficult one. With my vaping style I need something to be a adv for me to release a recipe. With that said this was the closest I could get to a authentic plain pumpkin pie with out bombarding it with a vbic or some sort of vanilla ect..... I didn't want to mask nothing. I wanted a traditional buttery crust so the pairing of caps sugar cookie and inw biscuit play this role in making up the crust. Now the pumpkin I didn't want to go the same route as folk in using HS pumpkin. So my option were limited. Trying a bunch of different combos from holiday spice, flv egg nog ect.... they just wasn't hitting my palate the right way something was missing. The choice of RF pumpkin pie was a difficult decision. It's a tough one to work with imo. Using at 2% with caps pumpkin spice at .75% to help support the lacking spice and to help mute some of the off notes. Lastly the the lacking body of the filling is where I need a milky or some sort of condensed milk. This is where the Vienna cream, cream fresh and sweetner play there role. The addition of custard is to thickin up the mix. Hopefully you guys enjoy it was a tough one for me.

Please comment, mix, and or rate,....it makes us all better mixers.
well I was in the mood for some pumpkin pie I don't know why but with cap pumpkin pie @1% and tfa pumpkin spice @1% makes a very good pumpkin pie base and the whipped cream is the topping of the pie and cap graham cracker and super cookie makes for a good crust and with tfa Bavarian cream fills in the whipped cream and makes it seems like there is real whipped cream on top which makes for a yummy vape and I could see myself mixing this up for thanksgiving this yr so guys mix this up and enjoy
Mixed at 75VG/25P
The problem with retail pumpkin pie eliquids I experience is that they are either too spicy or have some weird 'rubber tire' back note. I feel this pie is just so balanced with these particular flavors. It tastes like a home cooked pumpkin pie
CAP Pumpkin Pie:
Used at 1% due to its potent spices. Anything higher and I'm gagging. Nice tasting crust, allspice and creaminess
Used at 2% because it's a thicker 'pumpkin' with spices....but the spices are not too powerful that they take over the recipe. I used both brands because they both offer something different which is needed for this recipe.
Why the low percentage on this? And why its inclusion? All I wanted from this is the nutmeg note. This flavor is pretty potent, so to balance it with the other flavors, only 0.3% was required
TFA Vanilla Swirl & Strawberry Ripe:
Both of these flavors tone down the strong allspice a smidgen and add creaminess and depth to the filling. Without them you get a spice pie with a little pumpkin.
Even though there are spices going on with the above ingredients, the one ingredient lacking is of course, cinnamon. We only need a little here. And at 1%, CDS not only helps flavor the pie filling...it also gives a "baked" crust flavor to the Graham cracker.
LA Cream Cheese Icing/CAP NY Cheesecake:
Both of these flavors pair so well and really make the pumpkins take on a pumpkin 'pie filling' taste.
FW Graham Cracker
Perfect graham cracker crust
Round it out with sweetener and you've got your very own Punkin Chunkin Cheesecake Pie!!
I vaped this fresh, but with steeping(3-7 days), the pie filling becomes more like a pumpkin filling and less spicy.
