With summer right around the corner I decided to break out of my comfort zone and hit up a fruity and refreshing green tea! It is a green tea with forward apple and strawberry notes. The hibiscus comes and plays a little, and the lemon grass and rose are subtle notes that linger with the taste of the green tea at the end of the exhale. This is a shake and vape for sure, doesn’t need to sit long at all, maybe a day if you want. It’s fairly sweet as is, but if you are one that likes it a little sweeter, I suggest Super Sweet to your liking as it makes the fruit pop a little better than regular sucralose. You can also add a coolant of your choice. There are so many out there, I used FLV Ice and WS-23 just to try them out and test them. I do not recommend a mint as a coolant as many of them will turn this into a bubble gum type thing, at least to me.
A pile of smashed up chocolate covered raspberries with a whiskey chaser, AKA Sad Valentines Day v2. A rework of a previous recipe, "Beat The Champ.
Same profile as beat the champ, but bigger, and bolder.
I just went with an old friend, FW Razzleberry. The original recipe used some FLV Cranberry and FA Raspberry for something raspberry-ish. This is a little complicated, a little punchier, and for some reason FW Razzleberry works really well with chocolate too, so bonus. And the raspberry here is reinforced by the berry notes in the TPA Ruby Chocolate.
Hey, TPA Ruby Chocolate. This is newer. I dig it. I dig the semi-sweet chocolate thing, and the red berry hints are pretty darn nice. The Cereal 27 is just bringing in some AP and seems a bit weird, but settles into boosting up the chocolate. And FW White Chocolate because why not back up that chocolate and add some richness. Also TPA tastes like black pepper. Fite Me.
Not really a straight bourbon. I'm playilng around here a bit. FA Whisky is a scotch, but like a fruity scotch. It works pretty well with red berries in general and I love it. The red oak is there for some char and some tannic mouthfeel. And I have no idea why the Lemon Grass works here, but it does. I promise, the lemon grass is worth it.
So, let this steep for about a week. It calms down, smoothes out, and the AP from the Cereal 27 vanishes into the chocolate.
This is a creme brulée with a lemongrass and ginger infused twist.
INW Creme Brulée is delicious but not enough on its own for what I wanted, so I lobbed in some FLV Custard to add a little richness without extra weight,. and Sweet Coconut for a hint of sweet slightly toasted fluffiness. These three work well together to mimic the kind of creme brulée I dig.
The Ginger and Lemongrass combo works as well in sweet and savory concoctions, so pairing them here wasn't too much of a risk. Lemongrass is low because that ish is expensive, and it still comes through well enough at .25 to be noticeable without giving off any lemon pledge or woody notes.
You may want to add a few drops of INW cactus to it too, because it can feel a little dry - but don't overdo it.
Give it a week to settle down, and enjoy!
Massive thanks to @SlashaLO for the review and the suggestion to up the ginger a smidge. You were bang on the money and I've updated the recipe.
To me this tastes just like the Tazo Passion Tea you can get at Starbucks. It does need a few days steep for all the flavors to marry well. This one Mixin Vixens recipe of the month
*I diluted FLV Rich Cinnamon to a 10% dilution and used 0.25% as it is a VERY strong flavor and I needed the slightest hint of cinnamon to make this taste like this particular tea... but you can omit it if you don't have/like it.
Another Food Pairing concept here, there is something about this combination i really like.
I have a sweet apple base, topped with the floral notes of hibiscus and counter it with lemon grass and passion fruit and cinnamon.
It's definitely not a usual strawberry cream, but it's made for those vapers who like their juice a bit more special.
as you might noticed, i am creating a lot of crazy stuff lately.
I found good inspiration with food pairings and give opposite flavors a chance to play together.
here, i made a interesting recipe for you which includes tartness, fruits, limes, tea and guava
the tartness of cranberry has distinct floral note that blends well with lemon tea and bergamot.
Guava is used here not only to give a juicy mouthfeel but also adding floral notes to the cranberry.
Key Lime is added to boost the high notes, lime zest adds sharpness.
it needs to sit 3-4 days, but after that it will be a taste you might not expect.
Before I got really heavy into DIY Ripe Vape's Coconut Thai was my crack. Shit is expensive so it was a once a month kinda bottle purchase. I had tried to clone it previously but was not successful. Then came FLV Lemon Grass. It was the missing link. Can be a little harsh at first but things start to meld and the bite dies down. Coconut Thai was always harsh to me the first couple puffs then became super smooth, this has the same thing going on.
Here's how I mixed it - CAP Coconut at 2%
1 drop/30ml FA Zen Garden and FLV Lemon Grass
3 drops/30ml FA Lemon Sicily
Iced Volcano Gin is an interesting recipe which breaks a lot of your weekly routines and your all day vapes
I created it to use is in any good rda, rta or even good sub ohm tanks, just make sure that you maybe lower the VG % if using it in subohm tanks.
I crafted this recipe mainly on a dotmod petri and the hadaly.
The flavor profile is strong, floral, sweet and unusual.
Maybe a fresh breeze in all the creams, candys, custards.
FA Marshmallow - you all know what it does, binding the flavors together, balancing sweet and tart
TPA Cotton Candy - sweetens up your life
FLV Lemon Grass - well it does something to this mix, the exotic floral note really gets me here
INW Sparkling Wine - no seen very often but this also gives you a new tasting sensation
FA Gin - the lower, stronger note of my Gin
FM Gin Orange - suprising cool flavor, floral and unexpected
FA Hypnotic Mist - adds that special something to the mix, used it for the first time and i like it
Mix it at 70/30 and steep for 5 days or more
If the recipe is too strong for you, lower both Gin's a bit
Hope you all like something experimental and new
