Blood Orange Margarita-ish club soda coctail
I have chosen flv agave tequila, flv citrus soda as the base with a drop of extra lime to sharpen the profile.
FLV agave Tequila
I tequila low so as not to make it too boozy, go up to 0.75, if you so please.
FLV Citrus Soda
Stayed relatively low here to leave space for the rest of the flavours. Just used to break the monotony of the tequila. The flavours i selected to use with the tequila sits almost on the same spectrum and i needed something to just give the base some body and depth.
CAP Super Sweet
Along with the Citus soda helps give sweeteness and depth
FA Lime Cold Pressed
Just a dash of juicy lime to sharpen the profile. I chose cold pressed because its a nice sweet and juice lime. Not too zetsy, and no real bitterness. Didnt want to overload as the tequila is plenty bitter already.
FA Blood Orange
This is the star of the show. I love love FA blood orange. Sweet, crisp, loads of citrus high notes and not too deep "red toned" if that makes sense... I wanted a mid to high tone note here... To almost sit on the same spectrum as the tequila.
Again sits on the same spectum as the blood orange and tequila. Together they come accross muddled and they almost translate to a new, unique flavour.Linear, dryish ginger with a tame ginger bite.
Note: ws-23 is a 25% dilution
This is a tropical twist on the classic moscow mule which is a ginger beer, lime and vodka beverage. This was made for Diy down under - mixing with me mates VT show
Ginger and Golden Syrup create the ginger beer base. FW ginger is the closest ginger to an actual ginger beer and works in this application
Pineapple sits in the middle here bridging the top notes of passion fruit and blood orange to to the base note of ginger
Passion fruit and Blood Orange passion fruit for me has a predominate Orange note that I wanted to pull forward with the bright and crisp blood Orange champagne which also adds a bit of that fizz impression
Persian lime for me is a sweet tart authentic lime juice which is what I needed here, and is the upfront prominent note in this mix
Add sweetner to your liking I used FLV sweetness at 0.30%

I may be the only one crazy enough to try to pull off a full recipe chai from scratch but here we go.
Your classic Masala Chai spices are usually made up of:
For the main note, I chose FA Cinnamon Ceylon at .75%. It is a bakery-type cinnamon that is perfect for spiced beverages that mixes extremely well with the next spice.
FA Cardamom at .5% is a sweet, green, true cardamom flavor that no other company does. Thank goodness FlavourArt does it right. You cannot have a chai recipe without cardamom.
FW Ginger has a fresh ginger root flavor. Too much, even .5%, can over take the mix. I found the sweet spot for this mix to be .25%
TPA Holiday Spice at .5% stands in for my Nutmeg spice. I love this flavor for any winter recipe.
FLV Clove at .30% is perfect to make this bold and spicy. Someone once said, "FLV Clove is pretty damn analogous to FLV Rich Cinnamon in that it's bold, ridiculously strong, way too expensive, and pretty great." I fully agree.
The last one I am sure has a lot of people scratching their heads. FA Black Pepper at .5%. It's a warm, woody spice that is a delicious addition to this recipe.
Then I added the FA Black Tea and made it sweet; And for the milk component, I went with FA Vienna Cream 1%, which really stands out when you add spice, FA Vanilla Tahity .5% for sweetness, and FA Cream Fresh 1.0% for bulk.
This puppy needs a 5 day steep and a day or so to breathe. Do not skip the breathing. It needs to breathe off some spice.
I wouldn't say it's an ADV, but it's definitely tasty with the cool weather coming.
An explosive profile created based on the flavour affinities shared between Lychee, Ginger and Lime. Bright tropical toned fruit profile with a bitterish zesty lime and a dark syrupy ginger
I have used a combination of Cap Sweet Lychee andFLV Lychee to create a sweet almost over ripe tropical Lychee. I added FA pear to offset some of the dry notes from the FLV Lychee and to supplement the tropical tones of the lychee.
i had a hard time deciding between FA Tahiti Cold Pressed and FA Florida Key Lime. Fa Florida is sharper and carries less of a zest. this would typically be my go to but the idea here was to have a bit of fun. so I chose Cold pressed, i felt the heavier zest bitterness will play nicely off the floral sweetness of the Lychee. but this also meant I had to be quite careful not to over flavour as cold pressed is very overpowering
I had my mind set on FLV Ginger, alas I was all out and its doesnt seem to be stocked locally anymore. i would have preferred it as it is a more robust, syrupy, sweet ginger which would have been perfect for this profile and would have reduced the need for additional sweetener. if you have FLV Ginger use that instead at around the 0.5% mark
So I settled for FW Ginger. is it quite a linear, dry ginger but I was pretty much shit out of luck here. I i reckoned this will work well as the CAP Sweet Lychee has quite a syrupy quality and so I just added the smallest touch of FA Molasses and TFA DX Brown sugar just to push it to the dark side a tad bit. I chose DX because it is quite a bit darker than the OG.
The ginger settles in after about a week. I prefer this shake and vape as the ginger is nice and sharp straight off the shake. the Lychee also has a habit of turning quite floral at such a high percentage. So i almost want to say make only enough that would last you 2 or so days for best results.
I quite enjoy the better zesty lime but if you want something bit more timid then feel free to sub with FA Florida Key Lime at the same % maybe a touch higher.
dropped a tad bit sweetener to tame the lime zest just a tad bit
I may make some changes to this, but as right now I'm very pleased with how this came out.
This recipe was inspired by @Trevorxgage's Southern Peach.
FA Cookie - This gives it the flavor of a very light baked, slightly buttery and flaky flavor crust that a tart would have.
OSD Lucky Shot - This gives the crust some density as well as adds some mouthfeel.
TPA Brandy - I feel like this adds some sweetness along with giving it almost a syrup feel to the fruits.
INW Shisha Vanilla - I put this in to help the Brandy create the syrup, I think it works well in doing so.
TPA VBIC - This is here to help meld the filling together with out making it too heavy, I had considered CAP Vanilla Custard but wanted to keep things light.
CAP CDS - Couldn't have a peach tart without a touch of cinnamon, Not too much and along with the ginger I think it's perfect.
CAP Honey - Another additive for sweetness and the syrup.
TPA Juicy Peach - One of my favorite peach flavorings out there. I think this tastes like the flesh of the fruit. Sweet but not overpowering.
CAP Yellow Peach - I get a slight tartness from this flavor to me it's like the skin of the peach, paired with the Juicy Peach gives this recipe the full peach flavor I wanted.
CAP Apricot - The tartness from the Apricot boosts the peach flavors as well as helps with the skin portion of it.
FW Ginger - As said above paired with the CAP CDS is the perfect amount of spice to this recipe while keeping it a lighter flavor and not muddling everything.
FA Lemon Sicily - This is in to brighten the fruit flavors.
I know it's a lot of flavors, and it's a bit of an odd one, but damn is it tasty.
