I've been on the search for a nice Grapefruit soda, and failing to find one, I thought I'd give it a go.
I saw OOO Squirts Soda which is the prime flavor in this case, but I felt it need a little more support.
I like a heavy grapefruit flavor so borrowing from my favorite Developed Recipe - Mellow Pomelo I used the combination of FW Ruby Red and VT Honey Pomelo. I tried a couple of other combinations and always came back to this duo.
To support the soda side of things there's nothing better than FLV Citrus soda and a healthy dose of CAP Lemon Lime to really bring the soda forward and blend some citrus into the mix. For a more rounded soda flavor.
A dash of Super Sweet to round things out a bit.
You can add .25% WS-23 if you like, but I prefer it without.
It seems to be the thing today to list what you are testing your recipe with, so here you go. Series Mech, .3 ohm dual round wire at about 250 Watts on a Kennedy RDA.
I was trying to get close to the Jarritos Guava.
FLV Guava for sharpness because the Jarritos has a little grapefruit thing going on.
CAP Sweet Guava for the base fruit.
CAP Cantaloupe really helps sell the guava to me. It sweetens everything up, blends everything together, and add extra wetness.
FLV Citrus Soda and FA Lime Tahity (cold pressed) to enforce the soda underneath.
In Australia I associate summer with fresh mangoes.
I looked at my wall, grabbed some flavours and threw them together. I didn't change flavourings or percentages from that so likely there is a better way to make this but I like it enough as is to share.
For me this is the perfect amount of saturation, richness and mouthfeel.
If you have and EXTREMELY sensitive throat you might think its bordering on harsh off the shake but there is no harshness for me especially after 24 hours.
As I said, I didn't play with this at all so feel free to make it better or change it up and let me know what you did.
I vaped this exclusively on a Citadel (after market driptip) with a dual core fused clapton 0.25ohms @45w (3.4v)
Flavorah did such a good job with their Cola. It is spot on Coca-Cola. Its got notes of caramel, vanilla and citrus.
Citrus pairs really well with Cola. FLV Lime Wedge is a nice bright fresh lime flavor just like you squeezed a lime into your Coke.
I added a little bit of FLV Citrus Soda to boost the lime and help with fading.
Sweeten to taste.
Benefits from cooling or ice.

Fresh summertime soda for y'alls.
This one is long overdue, the legend @ID10-T requested this... months and months ago. Finally I got my shit together and finished it, and I think it turned out pretty darn good.
FLV Citrus Soda: I wanted to see if this could be used in another scenario than the usual lemon/lime soda base, and it seems it could. Adding the other bitter and tangy grapefruit flavors on top of it definitley bends it in that direction, while still getting the "fizz" from the citrus soda.
VT Grapefruit: Honestly I can't understand why this flavor isn't used more. After having tried most grapefruit flavors out there, this is probably my favourite one. It's got quite a citrus punch to it, almost a fizzy feel, which I like a lot and it complements citrus soda perfectly. It also has the right admount of bitterness that you expect from a grapefruit.
INW Grapefruit: Has a bit of sweetness in it, something that VT's is lacking, although they are very similar and together they make for a well rounded bitter grapefruit flavor. I picked these two flavors because they are relatively bitter and "citrusy", as I want it to be a contrast to the sweet pineapples.
INW Pineapple: Very fresh and juicy pineapple, almost like a pineapple juice. It's pretty weak in flavor though, hence the high percentage used.
CAP Golden Pineapple: Together with INW it makes for a well rounded pineapple flavor. Also very sugary sweet, and I feel like it adds some body to it, which INW is lacking.
WS-23: I haven't included the coolant in the recipe, but this one is extremely coolant compatible. I'd go for 0.5%, but I know everyone has their own preference depending on recent usage.
