Welcome to possibly my most left of field type of profile I have ever created.
Thanks to the numerous mentions of many flavours found in this recipe to Concrete river. He has created enough intrigue for me to at least try these flavours. However as usual I like challenging myself to take things up a level and see how I can use these in a recipe effectively. I am really glad I did because I think I have found a really pleasant fruity IPA beer like stone with the combination of FA Liquid Amber, FLV GInger Peach, VT Bitters & Yakima Hops. I wanted to add something a little refreshing to this so hence I added some Apple Cider, Cherimoya, Persian Lime & Mixed Mint. These additions bring some depth of fruity contrast to this as the lime cuts through with the fresh notes from the mint. There was NO layering going on here! This was purely a blend and learning what and how each flavour played together till I came up with something intriguing yet enjoyable. However I don't wish to understate this recipe or be pretentious, IMO its enjoyable!!
Tell me what you think & regardless just enjoy mixing something you enjoy!!!

My take on a "Jack Rose" cocktail, with applejack, grenadine, and lime. Warm, sweet, and holiday-esque.
Originally mixed for a holiday cocktail episode of DIY Downunder, I've been meaning to do something inspired by applejack for a while and this was a pretty good excuse. Applejack is a traditional-ish american spirit that was originally made by repeatedly freezing the water out of cider until it proofed, so like an ice wine but with apples. It's usually just done as a distilled apple brandy now, but it's still delicious stuff that tends to be less subtle and a bit more obnoxious than something like Calvados. I do think it fits in the colder weather really well, and it's something that feels seasonal without tasting like pumpkin spice.
Shoutout to MlNikon for putting the bug in my ear about FA Liquid Amber being the best brandy flavor out, because I completely ran with it. I think a lot of failed attempts at making an applejack were down to putting the apple first. I just flipped it, and throw an ungodly amount of liquid amber in to mix to see what it would do. I liked it. 3% is indeed a whole lot of liquid amber, but it's used as an actual flavor and probably the crux of the recipe instead of the usual sub 1% additive range. It has a decent amount of texture and a really nice warmth to it to.
The applejack is filled out with some of the amazing funk and depth of FLV Apple Cider at 1%. The good applejack, the bottled in boud stuff from Laird's, is aged in oak. So that's the last flavoring component here. Some TPA Red Oak at 1% gives a solid bourbon char. I feel like it's less dry and astringent than FA Oakwood so that's probably a good fit.
The rest of the cocktail is pretty easy. TPA Pomegranate Deluxe is fuller, sweet, and doesn't have any weird off notes. Seems like grenadine to me. I just wanted a light touch of grenadine here, so 2% seemed about appropriate. And the lime juice. Oh the lime juice. I like FA Florida Key Lime for a non-candied lime juice flavor that doesn't fade out too hard. 3% got me where I wanted to go.
So there we go, a holiday cocktail that doesn't involve LB White Chocolate Peppermint. Look upon my works and tremble.
Every October the family goes to the local apple orchard to pick a basket of apples, and then takes the hay ride back to the pumpkin patch. When we have all our stuff ready, we go in to the little shop area to pay. This recipe is what that little shop smells like.
There’s spices unknown all blending together in the country air. There’s apples, obviously. So many apples. Is it the fresh squeezed apple cider? Apples from the orchard? Pies? Maybe some coconut candles or jam that was probably made by someone’s sweet old grandma. There’s so many different things hitting your nose, but nothing is offensive. There’s no off notes, but you’re not quite able to pick out every subtlety.
That’s the inspiration for this recipe. I usually don’t post my non-tobacco recipes because I usually find that I’m just bumbling around with fruits in my hands, but I’m actually pretty proud of this one- not just as a fruity recipe, but just in general.
A lot of times i release recipes that are appealing to the public with short steep times and popular profiles well this isn't that. This recipe is more of something i made purely for myself in mind and more as a challenge because i tend to mix for fun by chasing harder more layered profiles when i am making juice.purely for myself. This is not really even a dessert or at least i dont think it is? I basically thought apple butter and creme brulee would taste great together and they did.. I will say i find this recipe goof after a week steep but its great after a long 2-3 weeks. I figured with fall approaching and the length of steep time that now was a good time to release this recipe. I used .50% flavor west sweetener i have also used tfa marshmallow for ethyl maltal instead of sucralose and both were good. With the marshmallow it is slightly muted by the use of ethyl maltal but still good i went all the way up to 2% with the marshmallow but I prefer it with the sucralose but use whatever sweetener you want to.its your call everyones taste is different.
An apple cider pudding pie
This is a flamboyantly autumnal recipe that, being shared in the first week of spring, couldn't possibly be more out-of-season. It's also poached entirely from @ConcreteRiver's delicious Deer Lodge recipe, with all of the ingredients being exactly the same, even used at the same concentrations, with just two small additions.
This is not meant to imply that there is anything wrong with Deer Lodge, that it's missing or lacking anything at all. But when FlavorPro Jennifer Jarvis asked for a pudding pie for the #yearofmixing competition, I knew immediately that I wanted to try to wrap Rick's hopped-up apple cider pudding in a delicate, subtle pie crust. Several attempts with various other crusty ingredients did not work. This one does.
I don't get any apple or spice (not that either of them would be unwelcome here) out of FA Apple Pie. It just tastes like a plain ol' pie crust. And it's the only non-graham pastry crust flavor I could get to work as a main crusty competent here. The others trampled the hell out of that that lovely rich buttery pudding base. A light touch of FW Pie Crust provides another layer of bakery, making for a more flaky, less doughy, pie. Its darker sweetness emulates the edges of the crust, where the pie is crunchier and browner. The result? A dessert vape fit for the hunter coming home after a long day on the deer lease.
A hopped apple cider pudding.
This started out as a riff on Mill's "Soursop Pudding." I loved that recipe. The pudding base was on point, and I dug how he used hops as an accent to soursop. I took the basic idea and ran with it.
FLV Vanilla Pudding is the base of the recipe, bringing a smooth texture and some body to the table. The FLV Coconut is in here mostly to accentuate the richness of that pudding base. The errant bits of coconut flavor actually work pretty well, but I'm mostly after the buttery richness of that flavor.
I really wanted an excuse to try to make apple and hops work together. For some reason, I had never tryed it out, but I really dig how the hops plays with the boozy notes of FLV Apple Cider and the Apple Pop is there to really punch in the apple profile.
The cinnamon was the final addition to temper some of the clash between the boozy notes of the cider and the rich pudding. Plus, the warm spice makes this feel even more comforting and like a vaguely macho dessert you'd get at some boutique hunter's lodge. Shoutout to LimeDrive for testing an earlier version of this via Mixer's Club and suggesting cinnamon. Turns out, it ties the whole thing together.
The city light is too bright to save me or be seen. Welcome to Deer Lodge.
Slow mulled Elderflower Cider with hints of citrus and spice.
Apple Cider/Liquid Amber: This is the apple cider base. Apple cider provides some of the sweetness and cider taste where liquid amber just adds that "fermented" notes to finish it off
Apple Filling/Rich Cinnamon: This is some of the mulling taste. The apple filling gives a deep, cooked apple and spice, the rich cinnamon adds to the mulled notes
Elderflower: This is the hidden gem. It plays very well with the orange and mandarin to give a slightly floral hint. Its a hidden star for sure
Orange/Mandarin: This is another depth of flavor in the mulling. It adds a nice citrusy note to the mix
Ticino Taste is a summer Drink, a sparkly sensation both fruity and sweet without clogging up your tastebuds.
FA Pear - act as the bold note, but decently in the back
CAP Honey - binds the fruits together, gives the vape a mellow sweetness
INW Sparkling Wine - the freshmaker, interesting note in the middle
LA Apricot - a candy-like apricot sits in the foreground
FLV Apple Cider - pairs well with the sparkling wine
TPA Boysenberry - is a dark, tasty undertone
1 drop Eucalyptus per 10ml for a fresh kick
0.5 Lime Cold Pressed for a sour note
0.5 CAP Yogurt for a creamy note
