This mix was truly inspired by Dazcole - Fantastic. I was after a more sugary soda mix, where Fantastic had some authentic notes to it. Originally "Fanta" that started in europe had a bit of orange juice in it, however today's recipe contains no orange juice. Fun lil fact for you right there.
This is smack you in the face orange - kind of like a malaysian style mix. If you mix this up, please let me know how you feel about it.
Blood Orange FW + Tanger FA + Shisa Orange INW - This is my orange base, and it creates a delicious sweet blood orange
Strawberry TFA - I used this here to help blend the fruits together
WS-23 - (20% Dilution) Cools everything down, gives you the sense that there is some fizzyness also
Jelly Candy - To help out with the body of the soda, and also sell a more candylike orange flavour
Cactus - Adds some wetness to the mix
Just working on a remix of Darkstar Code Red for a friend. DS website stated its Sweet, tangy and totally irresistible; Code Red packs a heavy punch! A complex and expertly balanced blend of berries and citrus fruits.
This recipe is just about spot on. I'd say 97% there. May have to tweak the percentages a bit. Its REAL close!
For October's Mixers' Club prompt, I was tasked with revisiting my biggest failure of a recipe and making it work. When I first started mixing, I wanted to create a cola recipe without using any cola flavorings. From what I had gathered they were all pretty lackluster, and I wanted to solve a problem many people were facing. It was a tremendous error in judgement, and I wanted to abandon it completely. If Concrete River didn't make this eloquent challenge, and ID10-T didn't make his decision to conquer his fear, I wouldn't have accomplished a major goal and brought this to life.
Normally I would put a lot of development notes here, and explain why I made the decisions that ended up in the recipe, but I'm not going to do that with this one. I want you to mix it up if you're interested in an awesome cola recipe, and know that I put a lot of effort into it. Another part of the prompt was to explain what I'm doing differently now, which I think could benefit many people. The first major difference in my mixing was brought about by Jennifer Jarvis. I knew early on that she utilized smell quite a bit, but I didn't understand how important it was. I stopped making recipes with percentages and suggestions, and just started following my nose like Toucan Sam. I would try to elaborate, but I wouldn't do it justice. Just go find Jennifer Jarvis and she'll give you some amazing pointers.
Another major difference in my style is the application of vast amounts of information I have gathered. There are so many incredible resources on YouTube, Reddit, and Discord that have made my experience truly awesome. People that are willing to answer any question you can conjure, give suggestions on ways to make an idea work, and provide inspiration for creative new recipes. I'm very thankful for all of them, and I look forward to coming up with countless things for everyone to try.
Imagine if you mixed Brandy, Triple Sec, Blackcurrant syrup and then threw in a splash of Bourbon for good measure. This is what it would taste like. Take a walk on the darker side of life and give this a try. This gives you a delicious stiff drink without that pesky hangover the next day.
I used the Bergamot and Blood Orange to create a Triple Sec profile. It may not be exact but it was the ratio that I was happy with. If you do not like the taste of orange zest you may want to notch the Bergamot back a bit. The Dulce De Leche adds depth and sweetness to the fruits as well as mouth feel which is also why I added a splash of Sweet Cream. IMO a good hard liquor coats your mouth and lingers on the tongue. I am trying to recreate that texture. The Oak Wood is simply to add that "top shelf" cask aged taste to the Bourbon. If you do not have the Oak Wood you could get by without it but it really does pair well with the other flavors that I have used here. This tastes best after 24 hours and its optimal window is 1-2 weeks. After that the warm boozy notes tend to fade and the creamy caramels start to take over too much. So if you want to let it steep try cutting the Sweet Cream and Dulce De Leche in half.
This does not really need extra sweetener but I did try it with some Sugar Daddy Vanilla at 0.4% and it worked nicely. The photo was found on Google images.
Mixed this and fell in love at first vape...I have no clue how it will be when it steeps but at shake and vape it's so good especially if you like cool vapes...I'm sure you can make it without the cooling but I love cool and menthol Vapes so that's why I added the ws23 and cool menthol and my threshold is very high for menthol so maybe cut it in half or more if you don't love cold vapes..The peach is so fresh and sweet and the oranges are back notes and the pineapples seem to kind of just make it sweet...
Even better When I decided the name for this I got lost in a 90s rap jam session while mixing it! :) I recommend typing you down with Opp on youtube while mixing and letting the oldies come back to you! Enjoy
A bright pink Hawaiian POG for Pride 2018 that packs all the tropical flavor of guava and passion fruit but with the tang of a strong orange and the tart it was missing, brought by grapefruit.
The Hawaiian POG remix from @ENYAWREKLAW has been my ADV for many months now even though I've always missed a little tang from it. I then mixed @Dmilin recipe over on ELR. Both recipes were inspired by @Gwandrei Hawaiian POG Remix and the original by Naked, which I still haven't tried. I started mixing all these together but the recipe was still lacking in body and brightness.
FA Passion Fruit: I really love the flavor but it's sweeter than a real passion fruit, it's missing the zing of it. I like it strong, but you can take it down by 0.5% up to 1% if you need to.
FW Blood Orange: a great orange that compliments CAP Juicy Orange very well because it gives it more body and compensates the watery aspect of CAP JO. The combination of both is a really tasty orange juice.
CAP Grapefruit: brings the tang and tart, red flavor to the passion fruit, the guava and the orange that was missing for me in the all the Hawaiian POG recipes I've tried.
This recipe does well at higher wattages and in PODs alike. Don't be intimidated by the higher-ish level of flavorings in this recipe, most of them have a tendency to need mixed at higher percentages.
Representation matters in all aspects of life and in the vaping community. I hope those of you who will mix this will enjoy vaping this POG and have a thought about social justice, equal rights, love and what it's like to be different in the world we live in, as you vape it.
A decadent orange cheesecake spritzed with a wedge of fresh orange.
I have enjoyed Coop's Kiwi "Cheesecake" for a very long time and wanted to combine the "cheesecake" base with something else. As I am not a strawberry fan, I tried a couple of fruit variants and finally settled on Orange. I used the original base and simply subbed with FW Blood Orange. Although this basic sub turned out well, I tweaked it slightly to my liking, improving the overall vape experience vastly.
FW Blood Orange is the undisputed king of oranges ant takes it rightful place as the star of the show here. HOWEVER it needed a little help to punch through the "cheesecake". In walks INW Shisha Orange... Just a smidgen is all that it takes to lift the orange profile, yet maintaining that unmissable, deep, Blood Orange flavor.
The faux cheesecake is enhanced by a dash of cream and a smidgen of vanilla, which helps to fit the profile better. This simple adaptation works very well and lifts the original just so without detracting from its roots.
This does not need a very long steep and is good to go after 3 days.
