A cool, dragonfruit elderflower recipe.
INW Dragonfruit is the main fruit note here, and standing next to it is FLV Elderflower with its unique, refreshing floral brand .
TFA Dragonfruit lends some emulsification support.
INW Cactus is there to lend a bit of sour/tart and boost the juiciness of the Dragonfruit.
TFA Wintergreen blends seamlessly with the WS-23, giving a cool green-ness that doesn't get minty. Tried with 0.5% WS-23 at first, but I found the coolant was overshadowing the other flavors too much.
i wanted a springtime vape, something which leads my tastebuds from wintertime (with heavy custards and creams) into the lighter, brighter days.
something fruity, maybe floral, light
CAP Double Apple provides the main body, fleshy, sweet apple
FA Pear provides a bit more bite to the apple and also some water
FLV Elderflower and FLV Yakima Hops act as the floral counterparts, the will provide fresh, bright top notes
TPA Vanilla Swirl binds the top notes and lower notes together and acts also as the sweetener.
you can add up to 0.5% CAp Super Sweet for extra sweetness
Menu Description: Fritter dough with elderflower petals and a dash of Cordial, deep fried and dusted with powdered sugar.
3 time Mixer's Club submission!!!!!
Notes: So, elderflower fritters are actually a thing. I’ve never tried them, but they really are a thing! There are two ways to make them. In one you actually dip the flower heads in batter and fry them. In the other, the flowers are milled into a classic fritter dough, with some Cordial thrown in to bolster their flavor, and fried. Both are dusted with powdered sugar and served warm. I was envisioning the second type when I created this recipe. I’ve never eaten fried flower heads, but I can imagine what a dough with elderflower in it would taste like.
With that said, the recipe is pretty straight forward. The Deep Fried Pastry Dough and Zeppola make up the fritter dough. The Elderflower and Powdered Sugar make up the elderflower and powdered sugar! The Cream and the Marshmallow keep the mix from being dry and softens the sharpness of the elderflower into the sweetness of the dough.
This needs at least 5 days to develop. Off the shake it takes like hot metal! After a day or two it tastes like a powdered sugar donut with a little zest. By day 5 the elderflower starts to shine. The bakery notes take on a more fried dough characteristic, rather than just a donut. The powdered sugar tastes more like fresh powdered sugar versus the mass produced, sitting on a shelf for god knows how long, kind of powdered sugar you get on those donuts. It’s still a tad dry. I’m not sure if that will steep out or if the recipe needs some tweaks. I’m also not sure if this tastes anything like an elderflower fritter. But it’s interesting and different. I think it’s a profile worth exploring further with the help of MC.
Mixed at 70VG/30PG with Essential Depot mats.
The idea behind this recipe started in the DIY_eJuice discord, where we were just bullshitting in the lobby one day, coming up with words that rhymed with "soda". Yoda came up, so I figured, being the "soda man" and all, why not give a "yoda soda" a shot.
So I started thinking, what are the characteristics of Yoda? First off, he's green. What "green" flavors do I have? Lime, Cactus, Apple, Pear, Honeysuckle, Hibiscus were on the shortlist (yes I know their flowers aren't green, but I considered all florals "green" for this purpose).
He's also an elder. That's where Elderflower came in to the picture.
So now I had all these flavors in mind, time to make this actually taste good.
The soda part is something I've worked with a lot, so of course I had to use my go-to fizz base: FLV Citrus Soda, CAP Lemon Lime & WS-23. As true effervescence is not (yet) possible to achieve in vape form, I feel that the sprite esque citrus notes from those flavors is as close as you can get to vaping a soda.
FLV Elderflower became the main part I wanted to build around, and I know that pear and elderflower is a great pairing. FA Pear is perfect for that as it's very sweet, something that is needed to make the recipe balanced against the funky florals and sharp citruses.
TFA Honeysuckle was on the short list, and it is sort of a "funky pear" so I think it's a perfect match here to help the pear with the sweet part, and also bring a more funky vibe to the whole recipe.
As I did a first test mix with those flavors, I knew I was on the right path. The flavors all pair beautifully with eachother and the overall feeling you get from it is very refreshing. After that it was all about finding the right balance between the sharp citruses, funky florals and sweet pear. It took quite a few attempts to get the balance between the elderflower, honeysuckle and lemon lime right, but I think it ended up great. I wouldn't nesscesarily say that it tastes like "yoda".. whatever that would be, but I think the common thread in the recipe is make makes this a yoda soda.
TLDR flavor notes;
FLV Citrus Soda & CAP Lemon Lime acts as the sprite esque soda base, WS-23 adds the cooling which further enhances the soda feeling.
FA Pear adds a very sweet and authentic pear flavor. It's very juicy which helps the mix with the freshness.
TFA Honeysuckle pairs great with the pear to give that funky sweetness, it helps sweeten the citruses and adds some complexity to the mix.
FLV Elderflower adds a floral touch, although it's a bit sweeter than other flowers, and a little musky. I think the sweet-tart flavor that blueberries usually have, this is in the same realm as that.
This is a relatively popular ice cream combo in Northern Europe, elderflower has been used here for decades (centuries maybe?), mainly as a spice to cover up the offnotes in moonshine, but it has also made its way in to ice creams, cordials and candy.
You might call this a lazy mix, and indeed it is. But as the vanilla is a main component here, there is no better vanilla ice cream base than the one by @eyemakepizza. It's elegant and tasty, and by adding the elderflower it gives a new interesting dimension to that rich vanilla yummyness.
FLV Elderflower is an amazing flavor that works well with both creams and fruits.
A Turkish delight infused ice cream.
Rose and raspberry ice-cream partnered with lemon and elderflower ice-cream.
The first decision I made was the ice cream base, I wanted to limit the vanilla as to not interfere with the main flavour so I chose FLV custard to get that eggyness and then loosened it with FA Milk.
The raspberry and elderflower can easily be dropped from this recipe but version one felt like it was missing something and the raspberry just gives the rose a little body and then my OCD kicked in and the lemon looked a bit lonely so I added a touch of elderflower because, well, it just worked and I like the lemon and elderflower combo, at 0.30 it’s going to give you that floral vibe but it won’t bog you down after a tank-full. The FLV rose essence really is the star of the show here, it let me add elderflower and still keep it on the low side of the floral spectrum.
You can totally drop the super sweet from this and not lose any of the characteristics, it’s all subjective but I feel it adds to that Turkish delight for that gelatinous syrupy edge.

Inspired by my Bloody Juniper, I present here her dark and mysterious Sister- Black Juniper!
Ive been enjoying gin vapes so much recently that I decided to try another gin but wanted something 'darker'.
The notes are pretty much the same as the Blood Orange with the exception of the main flavor being Juicy Blackcurrant!
My first choice was FA Blackcurrant, the Juiciest and best single black currant in my opinion.
I used the combination of FA Blackcurrant and a touch of FLV Elder flower for that deeper mystery that just compliments the Juniper gin's herbal notes in a special way!
If you like a Berry Gin, give this a smash! Its seductively Dark and boozy while still being sweet enough to enjoy all day long!
As Always I'd say yes, But here I would say Hell Yass! It makes for a delicious Vape!
I feel this needs the few days steep for the Stronger Herbal notes of the Juniper to settle and mellow down to where I like it, But if you like a full on Gin, smash this as a SnV.
My take on an elderflower gin gimlet - this is not for everyone but if you like a different profile and enjoy florals this may be for you
on the inhale you get the apple lime that transitions to the rose and elderflower sweetness with a light dry gin finish
Rose essence is very light but noticeable along with elderflower which is very much to me like the st germain aperitif flavors- they create the mid notes f and pick up on the botanical notes from the gin
Apple creates some juiciness and top note sweetness, it also pulls in some of the notes from the rose. it used her to help balance this mix for the dryness of the gin
golden syrup creates some base syrup sweetness that is similar to simple syrup in a cocktail
Melon rind is like the white and green part of a watermelon - it i is very similar to the inner white part of a cucumber. used here for some slight wetness
Lime adds some tartness and is essential for a gimlet
