This began as a simple idea to take @EdibleMalfunction's love of hops, @eyemakepizza's love of fizzy sherbet, and my penchant for Dragonfruit and to create a recipe together with those as our anchor points. On the face of it, it sounded like a bad idea, but it came together very quickly, and upon reflection it really makes perfect sense to me that these flavors blended together to make a truly brilliant sweet, lightly fruity, and refreshingly piney refreshing vape.
The recipe hinges on so many things going just right, but happily the balance was key to making this an honestly delicious mix.
Juniper Gin can be a bully, the piney notes are in full force with this flavor, so keeping it low was integral to success, especially while pairing it with the Yakima Hops.
Yakima Hops was an obligate inclusion when combining our individual interests into a single recipe, we didn't keep it near so low as the gin as we did want the crisp hoppy notes to be a major factor in the recipe.
Fizzy Sherbet again an obligate inclusion, but one that brings a citrus bent to things and helped steer the decision toward using FW Blood Orange to round out the citrus compliment to our crisp gin and hops combo.
FW Blood Orange was chosen because it complements the sherbet's citrus notes while avoiding the conventional trappings of a Gin and Tonic. Adding a bit more sweetness and an undercurrent of orange that helps carry the body of the recipe.
INW Pitaya is my compulsory pick, but we toned down the usage to 1% to avoid leaning too heavily on the inherent weirdness of INW's pitaya and just let the sweet, sort of strange fruit notes stand among the pillars of the recipe to accent the brilliance of other flavors rather than as a focal point.
Everything comes together to create a recipe unlike anything else I've vaped to date, crisp, refreshing, inherently sweet, and a true melding of our individual tastes to make something none of us might have ever chased down without the others.
Mixed for the fundraiser on Fresh03's Channel (https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC3WsPJP8QfvxiiIBRr18lPQ) for the Ali Forney foundation!
FLV Gin is our base note, and the juniper shines through the whole mix. At 2% it's prominent but not overbearing. .25% Bar Back Bitters helps carry the tonic through the finish
3% VT Persian Lime, with a boost from 1% TPA Key Lime really helps push the lime all the way through.
3% LA Lemonade provides a nice citrus base, and WF Passionfruit with TPA Cucumber gives a fruity body and helps to tame the top end of LA Lemonade and keep it from pushing out the Lime in favor Lemon.
If you're a sucker for cold things I think this would be perfect with .5 to 1% WS-23 as well.
Raise a glass to this perfectly pink cocktail made from gin, lemonade, and grapefruit juice. Using Lime and Strawberry to accent. Perfect for summer, and with FLV ICE, you can adjust amount you want in recipe. This is great in a pod.
This was really good off the initial shake, but of course just as with any juice, will get better after a few days steep.
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.
An exotic vape based on the 'Birds&Bees' cocktail.
In this refreshing recipe allot is going on to create a very tasteful vape , i used a berry blend, some rose essence and a touch of back bar bitters infused into juniper gin to create a delicate, aromatic sparkling wine cocktail vape.
The FLV Berry Blend pairs beautiful with the FLV Rose Essence, FLV Back Bar Bitters add a nice bitter touch and mixed with the FLV Juniper Gin and FLV Brut Bubble Wine and some FLV Honey Bee to bind the flavours and adding some sweetness. I added a little FLV Sweetness sweetener, i think this mix need some anyway.
The result is a complex juice experience that changes with every vape you take.
This mix balances from a flower(ish) fruity taste to a more sophisticated and tasteful bubble wine.
A very zen and exotic vape, soft, fruity and never boring. Perfect for the coming summer evenings.
Vapeable after a few days.
Been on the shelf for some time, as with most juices this one change for the better with longer steeps.
I was inspired to create this recipe after tasting a Local Juniper Gin crafted by SAs first Juice makers and it is By far hands down the Best Gin vape that I have had, ever. This Juice is called VM Juniper and was crafted by Benji from Vapour Mountain.
With my last bottle of the above Juniper running very low, I decided to create my own Juniper and it was based off a Craft Gin that I mixed and tasted at a Gin farm in Cape Town.
Using FLV Juniper Gin to bring the very authentic Juniper Flavour I kept it on the lower end as I enjoy a subtle boozy note and wanted all aspects to shine and compliment this Gin. with the Black tea added to compliment the herbal back notes of the Juniper and this all then infused with some sweet blood orange!
I used my new favorite 'liquidizer', Cucumber! in combination with a little Citrus soda and WS23 to give a cool soda/tonic mixer. Cucumber also has a very complimentary flavor at higher % that works Very well with a Gin.
As Always I'd say yes, But here I would say Hell Yass! It just compliments everything as if the only sweetner is from the Blood Orange!
I personally 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.
Got my head in a spin with these new FLV concentrates....seriously impressive and a joy to work with.
My Nan used to be a HUGE gin drinker and most times end up flashing her knickers at all the old fuckers and they bloody loved it!! I always remember my Nan getting very tearful after a good old gin sesh so this recipe is for you nana! Love you 💙 this can be S&V but like everything in life (apart from clean underwear) it gets better with a little age. (1-2 days). Please feel free to leave your comments good or bad and rate my recipe it really means a lot to me. Thank you all and happy mixing 😎
It's Gin, it's lemon lime soda, it's melon balls.... Adjusted the recipe slightly since it's steeped. The gin seemed to fall back just a bit more than I wanted it too after it steeped so I added just a tad more, and the citrus soda also fell back a bit more than I wanted so I added a touch more of that. Lowered the sweetener a tad too as that popped out more than I wanted after it steeped.
Everything else in the recipe has stayed the same. I just ignored the cucumber element in this picture as to me it is just decoration and probably didn't add anything to the actual drink. lol Overall without the sweetener (a version I made for myself) I enjoy this quite a bit as a gin drinker myself. The alcohol notes are pretty subtle which in a soda drenched drink it wouldn't be slap you in the face alcoholic anyway. I'm sure VTA Botanical Gin or FA Gin could also be added into this if you want a little more of an alcohol note, but personally I didn't want that. While you could sub the FLV gin for FA gin, it will be a little less aromatic in terms of gin, and a little more alcoholic, and I'd probably turn up the percentage a tad with FA gin. VTA Botanical could also be subbed but I'd probably turn the percentage down a bit from the FLV amount as it's a tad more aromatic. FLV is just somewhere in between.
You can mix without sweetener and get a good result, but for more of an authentic soda type feel to it sweetener works better. I picked PUR over the other sweeteners because it is strong and not drying, so it doesn't take away from the wetness of the drink.
A classic gin cocktail with a hint of rose & cucumber.

Based on the craft gin craze, I recreated a Rose & Cucumber Tonic using the new FLV Citrus Soda, infused with Rose and Cucumber as the mixer.
This is a homage to Juniper, an outstanding juice by my favourite local juice maker, Benji from Vapour Mountain.
Pick up a bottle and let me know how it compares here http://www.vapourmountain.co.za/shop/60ml-eliquids/60ml-vapour-mountain-juniper-e-liquid-2mg/
FLV Gin is a masterfully created, authentic dry gin which leaves little guesswork to the vaper as to what they are tasting. The resinous, piney flavour, inherent to the Juniper berry, is wonderfully balanced by citrus peel and a smidgen of spiciness from freshly ground peppercorns. There is a wondrous boozy element to the flavour which rounds the profile off expertly. The 'booziness' is not overwhelming in the least but rather augments the authenticity & overall Gin experience. I see this as the best bits of FA Fin and FM Pure Gin combined to create a well rounded & balanced Gin.
FLV Rose Essence brings a delicate, true rose, sophistication to the mix and softens the gin ever so slightly. This is a very "safe" rose flavour compared to other overpowering versions, and will not kill your mix, if used with care. At 2% it brings a semi-rose tinge without being floral, nor does it hinder the Gin to shine. The TPA Rose Candy assists the FLV Rose Essene to punch through the Gin foundation, which can restrict other flavors to shine. In addition, this adds a splash of sweetness to a relatively dry Gin.
FLV Citrus Soda brings a new level of an authentic lemonade/Sprite type flavor to the market. This is a fresh lemon and lime base with a touch of fizziness to perfectly emulate a Sprite like mixer. This is a more dynamic version of FLV Lemonade as it has more pronounced fresh lemon and lime notes. This acts as the mixer base and assists in "moisturising' the gin.
CAP Cucumber fulfills two roles here: Firstly, it provides some juiciness to mix without detraction. INW Cactus does this slightly better but it imparts an unwelcome flavour in this melange. Secondly, the subtle cucumber flavor adds another flavor dimension/layer which concludes the overall profile with an intriguing little twist. I found 2.5% to be aptly enough but it can be increased to around 4% for a more pronounced cucumber taste.
WS23/Koolada is optional at .50 to provide an icy feel.
Give this one at least 3 days to settle down...
