I love Irish soda bread and it is a tradition at this time of the year for me to seek out some ( because heck no - I do not bake)
Anyone that has had Irish soda bread recognizes that it does not really have a soft bread texture but a texture that is similar to a scone, dry and crumbling. So in order to achieve that I used shyndos bread stone https://alltheflavors.com/recipes/57854#bread_stone_by_shyndo RF baked bread which is more of a white fluffy bread with cap 27 and INW biscuit for the grainy dry back note that works well with the RF baked bread to leave that dry finish.
There is also a sweetness that raisins or currants add to the bread so using sweet fig and apple cranberry I was able to add that slight top note of sweetness I wanted along with the brown sugar at the back end of the exhale.
The cap yogurt adds that slight sour note that buttermilk would add in a soda bread along with some mouth feel.
My favorite thing to put on warm Irish soda bread is butter and VT butter base is perfect for that .
This is a winner and I am really happy with it - it is spot on - I hope you enjoy
I wanted to play around basil in some mixes and feel like it could be used in place of mint. One of my favorite beverages is a Moscow mule, which is a ginger beer, vodka and lime beverage. Any good cocktail has a nice balance of sweet with acid so that is what I went after here.
The Ginger ale creates the base note for this mix. While the ginger is a weak note it does add some sweetness and adds the impression of the ginger spice at 4 - 5 %
The cranberry apple and Thai apple create the mid note of this mix and blends well.. Thai apple is a thin sweet bright apple with a slight pear note that adds some juicy notes The FLV cranberry apple is a very strong flavor and needs to be used low % but could be boosted a bit more if you want a more prominent cranberry note.
Lemon lime soda and lime work to create that citrus and acid balance
The basil works really well as a accent note that is present on the exhale and is similar to what you may experience with mint but slightly sweeter and not as prominent.
The sweetner is added to contrast the citrus
