✔︎ Ideal Steep Time: 3-5 Days
✔︎ Original Mix Ratio: VG:PG 80:20
I know, I know, there's 18.5% total flavouring here which is a lot to work with, right? And yes, I am aware of what year we are in. But you remember ID10-T's 'Viserion' (the iced blueberry?) - which has something like 19% - and yet, here you are having survived long enough to make it to here. Remember this, my good friends, before you discount this recipe.
Plus, it's 80:20 and just look at those additives... I can assure you there were many trials and countless errors along the way. This recipe would not get to see the light of day if I wasn't ok with where it's at.
Since age 16 I have always drank sugar-free drinks whenever I can. Yes that's me, the one ordering the big mac, large fries, chocolate sundae and a diet coke. I don't have anything against sugar (anymore) but it's just one of the unnecessary habits I've kept alive over the years.
Present day now and these "limited edition" cans of "V" energy drink (Australia) appeared and I fell in love with the flavour. Yep, SUGAR AND ALL. Twenty-something grams per 250ml can in this stuff. Suddenly, it was not so important to go sugar-free.
I'm studying from home in lockdown so you see, these are like delicious little "cans of motivation" on the days when I just can't be bothered going to my zoom class for hours on end.
Point is, I'd been drinking WAY way too many of these and basically inhaling sugar by the pound so I figured, why don't I turn this into a VAPE JUICE?
And so I did.
I was experimenting and didn't think this was any good at first so I didn't note the recipe (idiot) but after a few days steep it was right on. I have tried to recreate it as best I can and this is where I'm at. Sweet-tooths (teeth(s)?) of the world, rejoice.
TL;DR: I made an energy drink vape juice
◦ LB Pink Lemonade ◦
Is effectively the foundation of the recipe, starting us in the right direction and used as a base to work on. It has a nice "pinkness" to it (perhaps a little strawberry in there) that sits underneath the raspberries and lemons we're about to add.
◦ INW Lemons Kick ◦
It's sahhh fizzy.. Get on this! It has an amazing ability to produce the FIZZ of a carbonated drink. It has a lemonade type vibe to it which is why it's here, working as an energy drink instead of using actual "Energy Drink" flavours.
◦ CAP Juicy Lemon / TPA Sour ◦
Juicy Lemon brings the JUICY LEMON. It's perfect in recreating the lemon in the actual drink. It's too sweet to be totally realistic but too realistic to be candied and is here for its vibrant and zesty lemon flavour.
◦ TPA Raspberry (Sweet) / INW Shisha Raspberry / CAP Raspberry V2 ◦
I've mixed up the raspberries here. This is based on ID10T's raspberry trinity and I tried it but it's just not the right fit here. I used INW Shisha as I find it to be a bit more syrupy than Raspberry (Malina). I used CAP Raspberry (v2) over FA's Raz (Berryl) because it's brighter, sweeter and the FA offering was just a tad too realistic and earthy in an energy drink.
◦ CAP SS / TPA Cotton Candy (10% EM) ◦
Originally, I used FLV Sweetness but CAP is the better option here I feel. The CC seem to enhance the overall flavour saturation and lift up the raspberries a little while the SS brings the typical fizzy drink or soda-type sweetness. I ended up @ 1% SS but thought that might end up too sweet for some.
◦ WS-23 ◦
You can omit this but it seems to work better with it. I really like my WS-23 and I added it at 1.5%. I see closer to 1% or less in other recipes so I've added it lower for this reason and becasue it has a tendency to mute the flavours at higher percentages on some devices. Please add in line with your preferences :)
SUBS / Other Changes
◦ Sub CAP Juicy Lemon with JF or any other sweet, tart, juicy & fairly realistic lemon. Something I haven't yet tried is VT's Sour Lemon. I've got that coming in this week and will see how well this subs in place of both CAP and TPA Sour.
◦ You could sub INW Shisha Raspberry with INW Raspberry (Malina)
◦ Sub brands with additives used here e.g. CC, SS, Sour, WS-23, just double check your %'s :)
I try to list subs where I can so if I haven't recommended one it's probably because
a)I haven't tried it, tested it, or maybe even tasted it!
b) There isn't one (or) I just haven't heard of it, or
c) It's taken me some time to find the flavours I REALLY enjoy and either the flavour is essential to the recipe &/or there's no valid reason in existence you should ever sub this and you really should just get it.
I'm only human.. tell me where there's ones I've missed.
I'm relatively new to this and want to learn more, feedback/comments are always welcome!
Lastly, just in case you use both (ELR) and (ATF) for different reasons like I do, Here's the link to the same recipe over there:
If you mix this up, or some variation of it, please drop a comment &/or review below and let us know how it went!
Being 100% honest I do not like this recipe. But on the other hand the person who vaped this bought it every Wednesday for 4 or 5 years. He recently quit vaping and I am releasing this recipe as sort of a tribute to his vaping days. I hope someone else will be able to enjoy it now.
HELLA CHEAP VERSION

Hey guys, was playing round with flavours for a diydownunder challenge in December, wasn’t impressed with the outcome and shelved the idea. Put the bottle in the cupboard and forgot about it. I took the bottle out last week and gave it a try..... after a looooong steep, the flavours combined and settled and what came out is a extremely well rounded raspberry lamington. 4 weeks for the steep on this one and you won’t be disappointed
This seems like a really complex recipe but in all honesty, if you don't have some of the berries in here you could likely just omit them or sub and you'd still get something really tasty. That being said, I feel the juicy lemon is pretty crucial as it adds a touch of tart undertone that gives the frozen yogurt a more authentic taste as well as giving a slight tart edge to the fruit notes, though Im sure almost any realistic lemon would suffice. Using this FroYo base, Ive made some pretty eclectic combinations, some of which I'll post at some point.
I kinda suck at writing detailed notes and don't much have the time to do so which is why to date, I've got so many recipes but so little posted lol.
I used a combo of raspberries to get an authentic berry taste, strawberry shisha to round up the top notes and a touch of cactus & pear to give it some juiciness. To me, boysenberry has that kinda fresh squished berry taste that I was looking for and is an awesome flavor with so much use. You wouldn't regret buying it.
Saskatoon berry is another really interesting flavor that I like very much, its rather reminiscent of dewberry. I know this is a flavor that some really don't like, Its really not essential to the mix so leave it out if you don't have/like it, it wont make it or break it. However, if you're looking for an interesting deviation from your typical boring stone fruit recipes, I suggest trying this.
Add whichever sweetener you like, in this mix, I prefer FLV sweetness @ 2% which gives it a more "sweet from within" taste & doesn't mess up coils.
Chill! You can add whichever cooling if you like, IF you like it frosty. WS23 @ .50% did it just right for me in this mix.
Doesn't really need a steep but I do find the yogurt comes in nicer after the 2nd or 3rd day.
Also, have tested this with 1.5 mg Nic Salts (as well as regular Nic) &, while noticeably toned down with salts, it still holds up well.
Please comment & rate if you do mix it up, not enough people do this here and its important for mixers to get feedback as a way of saying thank you for their hard work! :) In exchange for an honest review, I will do the same for one of your recipes after I mix it up. ENJOY!
Please DO NOT repost this to any other sites in any format, I have my reasons for only posting on ATF
This is a remix of Carnival Berry Lemonade...Same sweet taste..It's very close to the original. I think the Harvest Berry in this shines in the mix ..LorAnn Lemonade is a Hero here obviously being a lemonade vape..I tried lemon sicily and a few others before trying Lorann and once I tried Lorann I knew It was a GO...May be one of the best summertime vapes and best shake and vapes I've ever had
"'Member when vape recipes were simple?"
"That was fantastic."
"Oh, I 'member!"
This bevy of tarty fruit packs blueberries and blackberries, with a hint of raspberries and a touch of sugared lemon into a recipe that makes summer feel like it lasts all year round. Due to the way the flavors are balanced, I do not recommend any substitutions. You really need all these brands.
Add Sweetener to your personal liking. The Meringue does lend a bit of sugar but everyone likes their vapes at a different sweetness. I prefer no extra Sweetener in this recipe, but if Sweetness is what you're after, start at .25%.
Certified SnV. This is not a recipe for the steep drawer.
