I wanted to creat an all CAP recipe that was not only tasty off the shake, but left plenty of room for mixers to build upon. Add some pineapple, make a smoothie or both. As is, it reminds me of a drink you might have on the beach while on vacation, but with out the expenses or leaving the recliner. Hence the name Staycation. I hope you enjoy, as is or with your own touch.
This one started as a want for orange soda and I just kept pushing the lemon higher and higher to get some zip. I may rethink the lemon used to see if something else might work a little better. The fizz pop seems to add something nice to any fruit I have tried it with so far. The wife says it tastes like tang..so I might need to try to juice it up a bit. I made several soda recipes in the batch this came from, and this was the only one I wanted to play with more.
Add sweetener if desired
A clone of one of my favorite vendor juices from before my DIY days. From the long defunct Cloud Pusher Labs comes Lateralus. This was a very straightforward papaya, orange, menthol mix. I went with one of my preferred Orange combos here, FW Blood Orange and CAP Sweet Tangerine. There's not much I can explain in detail about this one, its a simple, yet refreshing mix.
There's an easter egg in the recipe, try and find it!
I got the idea for the premise of this smoothie from Nachefs' OCD. He used cherimoya with dragon fruit and juicy orange. It was really good but I thought the cherimoya was just a little funky for my liking so I used guanabana to keep the tropical vibe going and switched out the juicy orange for cap sweet tangerine for a more syrupy sweet smoothie.
FA Blood orange and Cap Sweet Tangerine are the stars here! They both pack quite a realistic orange flavor so the Blood orange is the tart and the Sweet Tangerine is the high sweet note. Cap Juicy orange just to fill out that odd mid flavor and add some wetness.
TFA Dragonfruit to help the oranges blend. I don't even taste it, but it's just a meshing flavor.
Soda Base to give it that "soda can" texture and some sweetness, .5% Fizz Pop for a soda fizz. No coolant as I drink my soda warm, feel free to add WS-23 or koolada to your own preference.
SNV, best after a day or two steep.
Sweetener to taste. Old school Fanta is way different than the stuff we get nowadays with real orange juice in it which is why I used a lot of proper orange flavoring instead of more imitations. To me Fanta is the best orange soda on the market today, I love it!
Made for LGBTQI charity stream on FRESH03. A simple strawberry cream with orange accents
The orange just does something to the strawberry here. It adds brightness but at the same time puts a little tart in here as well
Give it a go. Together we can make it better. Let me know your improvements on this. Thanks for mixing and your feedback
