Vaping something that actually tastes like beer would be gross. This is more of a collaborative interpretive dance inspired by a cold glass of Ruby Red Ale. Notes of hops, raspberry, grapefruit, blood orange, and frothy suds dance on your tastebuds.
Very much a work in progress, but after two revisions, this is getting pretty tasty and hitting most of the right notes.
The first version wasn't tasting "red" enough or fizzy enough. It couldn't quite decide what kind of ale it was..
Version 2 added raspberries, WS-23 to make it cool, and bumped the blood orange champagne up to 4% for more effervescence. Unfortunately it also picked up some cheap wine notes. Just a touch of Vanilla Swirl muted a harsh topnote and made the whole thing a bit smoother.
Version 3 dropped the blood orange champagne back to 2% and added fizzy sherbet to restore the bubbly quality.
Thanks to eyemakepizza and isuamadog, whose idea i remixed into this recipe and whose feedback made it better.
This is a very good Orange Creamsicle that utilizes Nicotine River's Smooth NicSalt.
Intended for Pods, MTL devices and RTA's etc.
I used 18mg/ml of the NicSalt and It's as smooth as silk. I can DL hit it in my Nord with very little throat hit.
You can actually taste the Orange and Nectarine that leads to a nice creamy finish.
The best part is that it's not harsh at all.
Pretty great for only 16% of the mix being the aromas. I'm very happy with it.
A fanciful blend of blood orange & fresh figs with a dab of dark chocolate.
This is a surprising pairing of two apparent contrasting fruits, but therein lies the beauty of this combination, and the joy of DIY experimentation.
FA Fig, when paired with a touch of Amber, provides a sweet and delicious, authentic fresh fig, not the dried/candied version many are accustomed to. This is not the same fig profile found in Fig Newton, which a sweet fig 'paste' with little flavor reference to the fresh version. Some describe the flavor as a mix between peach, pear and passion fruit which does describe some of the elements but does not tell the full story. The problem in describing a fruit is that each has its unique flavor properties and it is almost impossible to describe any taste to someone who have never tasted it. It is like trying to describe an apple to someone who have never tasted one - it is just about beyond the bounds of possibility without referencing something which it is similar to.
To me, FA Fig is the quintessential fig.
FW Blood Orange is, despite it's new rival from FLV, still the undisputed king of oranges and just work better here. Somewhat bitter, slightly sweet blood orange with a hint of grapefruit sums up this beauty. It blends seamlessly with the Fig, to create a deep, somewhat unusual & familiar, deep fruit taste sensation.
HS Australian chocolate adds a touch of cocoa to compliment the inherent bitter notes form the blood orange. It keeps keeps the mix interesting by just sitting in the background with its mate, INW Shisha Vanilla, who needs no introduction...
Give this baby 3-5 days to mingle and let rip!!!
Orange Campari is popular cocktail based on the italian bitter Campari and fresh orange juice. Simple enough, it has a perfect contrast between the sweeter and bitter, ideal for a drink before dinner.
This recipe was possible thanks to FLV Back Bar Bitters, which was bended into a Campari by adding Pomegranate and Rhubarb.
Enjoy and salud!
Here is my take on the April 7th episode of Mixin vixens.
It is a very simple recipe, the ice cream base is my favorite at the moment kudos to @RockyHarlow. The LB vanilla ice cream and TPA Vanilla Swirl combo is a winner.
For the Orange part I use FW Blood ORange, CAP Sweet tangerine and TPA Orange cream. I try different Orange combo, but this one is the best for this one. We have a bright, sweet and creamy orange with a touch of blood orange.
For my taste, no need to add some sweetener
Feel free to add 0.25% WS23 for the cold effect.
Sometimes the logic works better then memory. I never had something like this recipe in my life, but I knew that these ingredients should work well together. So I mixed them and... BOOM. It's delicious!
THE RICE BASE
FE Sweet rice 3% and just 0.25% of FA cinnamon ceylon it's what I always mix when I want rice desserts.
FLV Sweet coconut 3% is the true fruit, the white pulp of coconut. But it is weak, so I need a bit of commercial coconut flavor. Fa cocò 1% it's the perfect pairing.
I need a sweet candy pistachio here so I use RF pistachio at 2%
FW blood orange is a complex flavor: it has a fruit part that talk with coconut and a bitter part to make a compensation to the sweeteness of RF pistachio.
You need a 0.5% of sweetener to help the coconut to rise up and to mute down the rice off-note.
I'm very proud of this recipe and I have to thank a lot of mixers for inspiration: @ENYAWREKLAW for his note about FE sweet rice, all the NOTED crew ( @mlnikon - @ID10T - @CheebaSteeba ) for their explanation of RF pistachio and FLV sweet coconut.
Enjoy and don't forget to review.
