Smooth Moves (Tropical Smoothie)
Mmm… just one drag on my vaper, and I feel like I’m on a warm beach somewhere! This smoothie makes me FEEL like I’m somewhere on a tropical island. A man can dream, right?
If there was ever a smoothie vape that tasted like summer, this one is it for me. I’m calling it “tropical” because this smoothie mix is based on the wonderfully new flavour from Flavorah 'FLV Smoothie Base' and is packed with bold and flavourful fruits and a little sweet cream.
• FLV Smoothie Base, a slightly lemon-ish fruit smoothie base, a perfect base to start with as the main building block for this smoothie recipe.
• FLV Banana, fresh candy like taste at the early days of steep, once steeped out it grows to a fully ripe banana.
• FVL Blood Orange, a sweet orange with a slight flesh hint and some juiciness to it.
• FLV Honeydew, It's a great honeydew flavour with a sun ripe melon, very smooth and bold giving the recipe a light with a soft rind aroma. Perfect in this mix.
• FLV Jackfruit, has ripe melon-like notes with a tropical punch baseline, it taste like a pineapple without been a pineapple.
• FLV Sweet Cream, milky with a hint of coconut milk, a milk note that perfectly adds creaminess to the whole recipe. The cream will bring out the smoothie taste even more.
• FLV Wild Melon, a candy-like melon flavour with a tropical pallet, perfectly for this recipe, use in small quantities because its a strong aroma!
• FLV Sweetness, is a flavourless sweetness enhancer. It will not gunk coils like other sweeteners.
Steep: 4 to 7 day's to blend the aromas, 14 day's or more and it just get smoother and seems to change into a fuller and smoother and rich smoothie.
Been on the shelf for almost 2 months, no degradation in taste.
Start your day by vaping this delicious tropical smoothie mix.
This is my al-day vape for weeks now, really wanted to share this.
Every single one of us has a little bit of Devil Inside.
With this in mind it was past time to start playing with fire & heat and a few other little things that were naughty whoooo ha wha ha whaaa wa ahhhhh........
There are few lovely cinnamon based cocktails out there that seem very trendy at the moment so I thought I would take my chances and create one in a vape, so said the devil inside.
The devil on my shoulder made me lick test Flavorah Fire Cinnamon & Flavorah Heat, kids DO NOT TRY THIS AT HOME otherwise you may discover the same melting point of brimstone!
FUN FACTOID: The exact temperature of Hell cannot be computed but it must be less than 444.6°C, the temperature at which brimstone or sulfur changes from a liquid to a gas.
May I use some orange I ask Lucifer,only if it's with my blood he replies. Adam was around the corner screaming use this Sour Apple as Eve handed me some raspberries bubbling in citrus (so they didn't make it to heaven apparently lol)
With these ingredients I went to work for the Devil.
Are you pleased with what I have created I ask the Devil.
He replies "we all have a bit of me inside us all ha hah,
so let all those DIY'ers decide ! Whooo wooo ha wha wa ha aha ahhhh"
I dare you to mix this !!!!
An explosion of exotic spices & and citrus served shaken, not stirred.

Based on the early 1900s classic cocktail, the Sidecar is a classic cocktail enjoyed the world over. The original recipe calls for equal proportions of lemon juice, Cointreau (orange-flavored liqueur) and Cognac. Modern interpretations include a version with Bourbon instead of rum with a dash of bitters called The Bourbon Sidecar. This version is based on the latter with the exclusion of bourbon.
FLV Back Bar Bitters is a revelation & I can see many recipes spawning from this unique flavour. This a a fantastical, deep bouquet of florals & spices which will add a magical touch to any mix. With hints of cinnamon, orange peel, ginger & cloves, it creates a complex and balanced aromatic & spicy additive.
A touch will make a wonderful spiced cookie, mulled wine and add allure to a boring fruit punch!
I use it sparingly here as I want the orange to shine. 0,5 is plenty but can work at higher %'s if you prefer a more pronounced aromatic kick. The inherent citrus notes compliments the Blood Orange perfectly to create a deep and true orange base.
FLV Blood orange announces itself loud and proud here. Not as bitter as it rivals, this beauty brings a freshness and vibrancy without being sweet nor tangy. A realistic & bold blood orange flavour with just enough zest without being overbearing.
FLV Lemon at 1% brings a refreshing bright & tart lemon to enhance the deep blood orange. Any higher and it will dominate...
An overnight sleep, well shaken, and she is good to go!
So a little cocktail for St Paddy day! this is a sweet and slightly tart cocktail based on a Midori melon ball. On the inhale you get that bright citrus note followed by the sweet honeydew and bit of sweet warmth added from the bourbon. Good on an RDA at 60 watts after a 3 - 4 day steep. NOTE This grows a bit and the honeydew really comes forward after a day or so, so give it at least 3 days before deciding if you want to change anything to suit your taste
For the melon - FLV honeydew is the main note - it is a sweet almost creamy type of honeydew it is full body and has a slight syrup/ sticky sweetness note to it and seems to grow over time this need to be balanced with some wild melon and melon rind to add some more wetness of a cocktail
For the sweet and sour mixer i used a combination of citrus soda which to me is very much like a sprite soda with a lemon/lime main note - it is bright, front forward and also seems to grow.. Blood orange which brings a nice bright citrus sweetness along with some tartness and helps filling the middle a bit finally apple sour which is a sweet and sour candy syrup like note. This contrast is needed to create balance in a handcrafted cocktail.
Bourbon is used low here for some warm notes as you would expect in an alcohol beverage - but it is not booze . it also add some darker sweet notes to contrast some of the brighter top notes
SWEETENER: I added sweetness to mine at .5% as I like that additional sweetness which midori has but it is really not needed as the honeydew is pretty sweet on its own
Sangria is one of those things that you hardly need a recipe for – or even a particularly good red wine!
I do have a few slight twists I like use for my own sangria recipe. I like to add berries, like blueberries, raspberries, or strawberries. While apples and oranges are more traditional, I find berries infuse more flavor and color into the wine.
A bit of fruit, a little orange juice, some brandy. Boom, boom, done
Let the ingredients speak for them selves in this bloody cold but tasteful recipe.
give it a 5 days rest and enjoy.
RF Brandy = RF SC brandy
Trendy cordials or squash has been a big trend around the world for many years where you see big leading companies and smaller marketers competing to bring out the next big thing especially when it comes to fruits which overtime has seen some amazing pairings that widely differ from the squashes that I remember drinking in my childhood. I can only say we are now spoiled from what was originally a saturated market of orange and black current varieties.
So here’s a take on the classy more upmarket varieties based on a off the shelf brand which sees a blend of raspberry,rhubarb and blossom orange combined with apple juice. It’s truly delicious and balanced and the only thing missing is summer!!!
Cap sweet tangerine/FLV Blood orange
There’s many ways to combine oranges which is definitely a debate for another day. I didn’t want to go down the FanTastic orange route especially with the amount of ingredients there to create that orange flavour so it needed slimming down. I wanted something realistic especially this being a beverage vape so cap sweet tangerine fits the recipe perfect. It’s bright and vibrant and very realistic and adds plenty of juiceness and with the addition of FLV blood orange adds a little more authenticity,tang and zest.
INW Raspberry/TFA Raspberry Sweet
Again these 2 raspberries don’t need any introduction they’re proven Raspberry staples amongst the diy community. The combination of the 2 gives a somewhat authentic Raspberry with INW being very realistic while the TFA adds some sweetness and syrup.
Hands down the holy grail of rhubarb no more words needed. Keep this flavour low and it provides a authentic rhubarb that just works in any direction you need to go. I’ve had this up to 1% while developing this recipe and it does work higher up the range but it will mute certain flavours within the recipe but if intense rhubarb is your thing feel free to up the percentage to 1% for a more tart tab laughing experience.
This is not necessarily a flavour that’s required it’s not doing much but by adding it,it will pop the raspberry and makes it brighter infact I feel it makes all fruits brighter and prevents foreground flavours being lost especially when using something as aggressive as INW Rhubarb. With its addition it prevents the recipe from being dry so wherever you get dryness within recipe developing a touch of Dragonfruit can seriously prevent this.
Cap Double Apple
This was a flavour that I didn’t anticipate using for the said recipe only befit wasn’t on the said bottles label. So why is it included? It’s always advisable to read the ingredients I was surprised when I seen it in the ingredients however I thought I’d try it and I wasn’t disappointed including it. Apple definitely adds something of a base flavour to pair other fruits around and maybe they had a reason to use it. Everything blends very well into the Apple without taking any of the flavours in other directions. I didn’t want to take the Apple flavour into anything too advanced so I kept it simple. Cap double apple fits the bill perfectly providing juiciness and some authenticity. I could of used Fuji but that flavour does overpower somewhat and could of confused the recipe. Basically the Apple is there without noticing it if that makes sense.
FLV Cherry Blossom
Originally a orange blossom would of been a better choice however it’s a flavour not widely available so I had to bend something else that I already had and one that is pretty well described to what it is,however this is only true if used right after all adding cherry would probably ruin the recipe. FLV cherry blossom is perfect and has that blossom floral elements without being overpowering. If kept really low you get what you need out the flavour without contributing any cherry notes. Perfect!!!.
Cap Super Sweet
I like any beverage related vape with a little sweetener it’s more there for my preference but add or dismiss to your liking
Add WS23 for a cooler vape anything between 0.5-3%
