What happens when you combine a botanical gin with some chopped up avocado add some gomme syrup, lemon juice and top it all off with some chilli sauce?? Should it work??? It actually does very well.
Take this recipe as a bit of fun as much as I’m enjoying it it’s never going to win recipe of the year but it does highlight what can be done with flavours at first glance you wouldn’t deem workable.
VTA botanical gin is such an awesome gin it highlights what a gin should be without really needing anything else to compliment it. It holds up very well to what you throw in there with it and it’s profile hits you on the inhale every time without fail.
FLV Avocado is very accurate it has some meaty inner flesh that’s very creamy,fatty and slightly nutty in its texture adding a little guanabana lifts this flavour to another level giving it a more creamy tropical flavour without losing what it’s meant to be.
VTA Lemonade clear and sour lemon add the gomme and some acidity to the gin and avocado. Creating gomme isn’t something I’m familiar with it’s basically a simple syrup however a lemonade flavour should mimic this very well without just dumping sweetener in there that could mute flavours.
FLV Heat seems strange but I wanted to finish this cocktail with a little twist. Think of this as a dressing avocado is always dressed with some kind of dressing especially in salads so why not here. Let’s mimic the FLV heat here as a little chilli 🌶 sauce drizzle over the top. It honestly works gin,avocado,lemon and a little heat at the end is just wonderful.
Mix it up and see for yourself I could of showcased gin the traditional way but who wants boring
A bright, smooth and sweet tropical jelly bean. At the top Jackfruit "Langka" and Guanabana "Guyabano" (FLV) create a smooth & lightly creamy tropical blend. Combined, these flavors are an amalgamation of a smooth honeydew/canary melon, citrus pineapple, and a ripe soft apple with a hint of banana. The Ripe Banana (FR) fortifies the subtle banana note found in both these flavors; intensifying the creaminess and also softening the sharper citrus notes.
These 3 tropical flavors blend nicely into the Candy Base (VG RF); which is a sweet, smooth & syrupy jelly bean - like flavor. Complete with a noticeable warm confectioner sugar note and mild waxiness.

Another Flavorah only recipe
This was inspired by LaLa's Guanabana yogurt smoothie drink and https://alltheflavors.com/recipes/14191#batido_de_guanabana_by_deejay_mills . If you haven't tried that recipe, you should. It's fantastic and a recipe I always go back to! This was one of the easiest all FLV recipes for me. Their tropical flavors are some of the best and this recipe just fell into place. The guanabana in this smoothie is rather subtle, but it blends into the creams and yogurt very well. I get more pineapple and coconut than anything else.
Give this at least 7 days. The cream and coconut will blend with the yogurt and soften some of the sharpness. Once that happens, the Guanabana and other fruit pulls to the front, leaving you with a nice creamy exhale
Guanabana - This flavor is and has been one of my favorites for the last year. So much going on. You get a cross between mango and pineapple with an almost banana cream back note. I needed to use this a bit higher to cut through the cream and yogurt.
Soursop - Soursop brings some of the same qualities as guanabana but is a touch darker/ muskier with hints of coconut. There is also some tartness that kind of reminds me of a Granny Smith apple.
Greek Yogurt - This is obviously the yogurt part. I know this isn't everybody's cup of tea. But, when used properly, you can bring out a very deep creaminess with just a touch of that "twang" to know this is a yogurt.
Pineapple - I added this just to give a touch more tropical feel to the overall profile. I get a sweet pineapple juice from this one. But it has very deep and darker feel, that seems to play well with creams.
Cream - This is here to help the Greek Yogurt from becoming too sour and bring this into more of a smoothie. It's a very neutral cream that is adding a lot of the texture.
Coconut - One of the best coconut flavors on the market. This is not only adding a touch of coconut, but also adding to the overall creaminess/ mouthfeel. It's super strong! I used it at about 1 drop per 20ml.
Sweetness - Reading the label of this smoothie drink, it says they use Stevia leafs as the sweetening agent. FLV Sweetness is made with Stevia. So this was an obvious choice. This seems to get sweeter the longer you let it steep. This has been my go-to sweetener lately. Not only do I think it plays better with creamy vapes, it also won't gunk your coils.
Optional - Maybe the idea of a warm yogurt vape doesn't appeal to you. Try adding .5% FLV Ice or the cooling agent of your choice.
Inspired from @gachatay recipe. I was looking for a way I could use FE Sweet Rice in a recipe with flavors that I had. This mix is crazy addictive I wasn't even going to share this but I'm honestly impressed with it.
FE Sweet Rice gives a great body that isn't grainy but just moist soft white rice.
FLV Rich Cinnamon 2 drops in a 30ml really takes cinnamon to the forefront and sits as mostly the top note of the mix but is blended throughout.
FLV Guanabana is the only flavor I have with coconut in it and even though it's not exactly what I want (I'm not a fan of coconut) this works great in the mix.
TFA Bav/TFA Sweet Cream/FA Cream Fresh/TPA Van Swirl
Well rounded cream base that blends and sits right in front of and above the Sweet Rice deliciously.
These three flavors play beautifully together to create a delicately complex, incredibly refreshing shake & vape.
Inhale is juicy, full and sweet, exhale is like spinning a color wheel until it all blurs into some pleasing, blue-green, undiscovered hue.
A little grapefruit zing, some voluptuous lychee sweetness, something vaguely papaya-'nana, whipped up in a blender with a light touch of coconut milk and garnished with an island flower.
Feel free to add a bit of WS-23, FA Polar Blast or Koolada to taste for a frosty summer refresher. Enjoy!
Mixed this up last August and realized I forgot to post it here when I went to re-mix it.
I've been mixing bubblegums like this one from the day I discovered INW Bubblegum yummy classic. For some strange reason they have a soothing effect on my pallette. Every time I change something a little bit and try new concentrates, and it has now come to a point where I think is worthy of a public recipe. It is great after a 12-hour steep but it balances as it should be on the 5th day.
