Coquito is normally made with Bacardi Dark Rum but since I’ve not had a Rum that replicates that taste the closest thing I have to that warmth is FL Bourbon and it worked. Combined eggnog and horchata to create the spicy thick cream base. Coconut Candy adds the coconut notes and the macadamian nut adds a realistic nut note to the blend. Sweet cream and cream fresh create the buttery milk notes and the FA Bavarian cream rounds it all out without adding too many vanilla notes.
Optional : Add 0.5% FW candy cane for the picture authenticity. Enjoy and Merry Christmas Familia.
Coquito meaning "Little Coconut" in Spanish is a traditional Christmas drink that originated in Puerto Rico. The coconut-based alcoholic beverage is similar to eggnog, hence it is sometimes called Puerto Rican Eggnog. The mixed drink is made with Puerto Rican rum, coconut milk, coconut cream, and sweetened condensed milk. Other spices and flavoring can be added, such as vanilla, cinnamon. Some versions are made with egg yokes. I work with college who gives me a home made bottle every year and I so look forward to it!!
The combination of OOO coconut custard and FLV sweet coconut work to create the coconut milk and cream , the coconut custard being much more cream then any custard and providing more of a top note for the coconut
Some versions of coquito also add egg yokes to the mix so FLV eggnog and PUR condensed milk helps to create some density and volume to this mix
VT light rum is the perfect rum as it does not have any spices or dark notes and has a nice warm boose note on the finish
This mix is relatively sweet feel free to add sweetner of your choice - I would recommend FLV sweetness
NOTES/SUBS: If you want a denser thicker vape, you can substitue OOO coconut custard for the custard of your choice., I would recommend FLV custard The brighter coconut top notes will decrease and vape will be denser. PUR condensed milk can be subbed with FLV cream but you will loose some of the inherit sweetness and body the condensed milk provides . The VT light rum can be subbed for WF coconut rum but you loose some of the booze notes that occur on the back end and add an additional top note to the coconut in the mix ( additionally is a thinner flavor)
Rich cinnamon is 1 drop to 30 ml

Messed around with this recipe concept for a while (ever since the mixen vixen episode on banana shake).
I originally was trying to use banana cream instead of banana nut bread, but for some reason I like the banana nut bread version better. I'm thinking the bakery notes might be working similarly to how graham cracker clear can effect creams (adds a kind of malted note to the cream).
Let me know what you think or if there is anything I can do to improve the recipe! I am always looking to learn :)
I enjoy making fudge for the holidays but it is hard to get a decent chocolate vape. Naturally I wanted to try to make some in a vape form. However I have had better luck with the white chocolate than the milk chocolate varieties, so I went with that instead. I used the WF-White Fudge as my base, and even though it is pretty tasty on its own, I felt like it needed more complexity. I added VT-Love and FLV-White Chocolate to get a more accurate white chocolate profile. The VT-Honeycomb helps add those golden notes you would get from cooking the butter and sugar. One of the main components to homemade fudge is marshmallow cream which is why I added a bit of the OOO-Marshmallow (Vanilla). It also adds some creamy mouthfeel as an added bonus. Last but not least I used the FLV-Eggnog and LA-Butter Rum as the accent flavors for my fudge. The end result is delightfully close to the real thing with considerably less calories! This needs 3 days minimum for the LA-Butter Rum to settle in. I used it low but it is strong stuff and has a chemical taste upfront. It will taste better with more steeping but it is still pretty tasty from 3 days on.
Optional Ingredients: This is fairly sweet on its own but fudge by nature is sickeningly sweet, so you may want to add some sweetener of your choice around 0.3-0.5%. You could also try adding TPA-Holiday Spice 0.5%, FW-Pumpkin Spice 0.5% or FLV-Rich Cinnamon 0.1% if you want a little more spice in your mix.
Ready for the holidays?? I am!! This is my rendition of a southern classic. The Nog Buttercream Cake. Throughout my formulation process I got completely nogged out, but that doesn't make this recipe any less delectable.
CAP Sweet Cream / FW Butter Cream
These two append the icing/moistness to the cake. Butter Cream from FW does an awesome job of thickening bakeries with dense mouthfeel. The two together do a wonderful job of fattening up that unfortunate and slightly thin back-note of FLV Eggnog.
WF Princess Cake / JF Yellow Cake
These two obviously both have the word cake in their titles, so one could reasonably assume it makes up the cake. I went with Princess Cake based on a recommendation from @Shyndo so credit goes to him for that. JF Yellow Cake helps to supply a bit more cake note as I found Princess Cake to be a little on the airy side.
By far the best eggnog concentrate I've dealt with hands down. It's a tad spice forward so we'll need to lift the thin back-note a tad with other contributors.
Add Complexity w/ an Accent
I like to add in right around .5% FW Maple Pecan. At a low % it contributes a light but noticeable nut to the cake, which is of course depicted in the thumbnail. If you're into bakeries with a light nut accent and have it on hand I recommend it's inclusion. Omitted in the main recipe as to be more available.
side note This is a STEEPER. It needs proper time to meld the flavoring, so aging is required. It's actually better after the 21 day mark though I am hesitant to call for a 3 week steep. As with any cream heavy recipe, keep in mind that it's better the longer it has to emulsify.
Have a wicked set of holidays! If you mix this up set it aside for Xmas and enjoy it as it melds together into a beautiful orgy of holiday themed flavors. 💦

The RF-Oats & Cream Cookie combined with the FW-Graham Cracker and JF-Biscuit form my cookie cup base for the tart. FLV-Apple Filling and INW-Two Apples are intertwined with FW-Brown Sugar, LA-Butter Rum, FLV-Eggnog and a hint of VT-Bakery Spice to make my apple filling and add savory spices for the tart. I am really happy with how this turned out. If you do not have the WF-Oatmeal Cookie you can trade it for CAP-Sugar Cookie and have a very similar recipe. The VT-Bakery Spice is optional but it is a really nice addition if you have it. You are welcome to add some sweetener if you prefer sweeter vapes but I did not feel that this one needed any.
