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
Alltheflavors isn’t playing ball with me at the moment so here’s a limited description
Botanical gin infused with passion fruit,mango,elderflower and tonic water garnished with fresh strawberries perfect for any tea party. A great refreshing cocktail for the upcoming spring/summer months.
Add ws23 1-2% for a chilly beverage
Recipe designed based off the description of how skooma is made in the world of Skyrim. According to their wiki, it is a super sweet sugary substance called moon sugar, blended with a "nightshade" of which there is no other description. So taking from that, this flavor is friggin sweet. Moon sugar is supposed to be super sweet, so yes, I used 3% CAP super sweet to stimulate this effect...and yes it's a lot, but it kinda needs it for the fantasy of this recipe.
OOO Powdered sugar gives it a slightly more powdered and little bit waxy nature, which was exactly what I intended it to do.
For the non descriptive nightshade notes, I decided to do something that would resemble belladonna berries, because that seems like the most logical nightshade to include in a narcotic type substance, choosing flv elderflower and boysenberry for berry type notes, the syrupy sweetness of elderflower adding to the boysenberry. Sugar orchid also adds a bit of waxy floral note, and FA violet adds some floral spice notes. The little bit of kick from the VT bitters adds just a touch of bite to the berries cutting through the sweetness and giving balance to the recipe.
Would I suggest mixing this? Well if you like sweet vapes, it will hit the spot. But it is a fantasy flavor not based in reality and may be a bit much for many mixers who have never played with florals. It is weird. And if you're sensitive to sucralose it's really not the recipe for you. You can try to sub the super sweet, but it was the only one that gave the sugar lips effect I was aiming for (yes I tried a few different ones.) If you do mix this, I suggest only mixing a 10ml to start with.

recipe for fresh and friends Saturday show
Wanted to use FLV elderflower in a mix and recently had a pear martini while on vaction that had elderflower in it and and I loved it !! The elderflower is very front forward in this mix with the pear and honeysuckle coming through on the back end.
The pear and apple work to provide that sweet fresh juicy pear note
FLv elderflower is a pretty strong flavor and will take a mix over would recommend to use it under 1%. it is a floral note with a bight honey sweetness
Honesysuckle adds some sweetness and body and a slight sruyp mouth feel
Blood orange champagne adds a bit of citrus and top notes to this mix , and compliments it perfectly
