FLV Boysenberry, PUR Boysenberry Preserves, and FLV Jammy Berry form the "berry trinity" of this recipe. RF (SC) Lemon and FLV Lemonade bring an authentic lemon flavor that is also somewhat sweet. Finally, VT Fizzy Sherbert and CAP Super Sweet back up the Lemonade and Jammy Berry respectively.
I get a sweet, light berry from the inhale and lemon on the exhale.
Before heading off to Florida I made myself a little refreshing treat, a pineapple cream soda float... it’s a simple profile yet effectively different enough to appeal to everyone’s tropical side ;)
VTA creaming soda lays the base, MB funky and VTA sugarloaf provide the pineapple and what a great job they do... the FLV lemonade helps the pineapple by accenting it with a touch of lemon and helping the soda side of things. Finally the FA ice cream sits on top of the soda, only at 2% as I didn’t want it too heavy it fits in nice at that percentage.
Super sweet isn’t essential but totally worth it but to each their own and can be dropped out dependant on your tastes :)
Ws-23 works a treat in this recipe, you lose a bit of the cream but is really refreshing.

A lemonhead coated in blue raspberry dust. The percents are higher than I normally go but the finished product is advapable. I really like lemon and blue razz vapes so i figured I would combine them and this was the outcome. Off the shake it's pretty good but a few days steep definitely brings it together. Hope you like it.
10/22/19 adjustments..added flv raspberry @ 1%/switch flv lemon for flv lemonade 2%..This gave it more depth and a smoother, slightly sweeter finish.
VT-Bilberry Ripe-(1%)-The minute I smelled this one I knew this was it!! I used this to boost the "blueness" in the recipe.
TPA-Blackberry-(0.15%)-***Be careful with this one do not over use it is very potent* **I used the Blackberry as the main blue note because I pick up some florals out of it ,which sings with the hibiscus beautifully. (The blackberry has a tendency to stick to whatever you put it on)
TPA-Hibiscus-(1.5%)-Big Shout out to Edible Malfunction for pointing me toward this hibiscus and away from FLV, compared to how the FLV was making this mix taste like i was eating the stem with everything this work a lot better but can be perfumery at high %(Not Saying FLV is bad but for this mix for me it just didnt work)
(Removed 10/6/19 because of fading) LA-Lemonade-(2.25%)-This is my Lemonade base to provide that tartness I need to counter all the sweetness in this recipe.
FLV Lemonade-(2%)- As a replacement for the LA Lemonade I kept having fading issues with it this also bring some juiciness to the mix
CAP-Hibiscus-(1%)-Serves dual functions as an accent to the TPA hibiscus and an emulsifier to help everything blend.
TPA-Strawberry Ripe-(1%)-helps make everything pop and bring some sweetness to the party.
VT Yellow Passion Fruit-(0.25%)- to give it more of a tropical body (did experiment with FLV Boysenberry, FA Passion Fruit , VT Passion Fruit and FLV Passionfruit) Felt like this one fit the best and joined with the florals,
FWIW I feel like this capture the drink perfectly if there is anything u guys think i can sub to make it better etc. please lmk =]
I used 1 drop cap super sweet per 30 ml you can add WS-23 to your liking hope you enjoy as much as I did working on it then finally getting it the way i wanted

A fresh honeydew forward melon soda for y'alls!
FLV Citrus Soda the only flavor that gives me that "fizzy" feeling. I usually think it needs some help from another tangy lemon lime flavor, but here I opted to use FLV Lemonade instead, to kind of sweeten it, rather than making it pop. I think it works great together with the melons, as they are so sweet, so the sweeter citruses blends great.
FLV Wild Melon is just an incredible flavor by itself, a blend of many different melons all mashed together. I opted to make the honeydew part even more prominent by adding FLV Honeydew, which can be a bit thick if you use it too high, but at 1% I think it does just what it should here, add even more of that great honeydew flavor.
FLV Cucumber was just some experiment I did, but I think it turned out great, as this flavor in particular has a quite distinct almost salty cucumber note to it, and cucumber/melons are a well known pairing. It's used relatively low here, so you have to look for it to taste it, but I think it adds a great juicyness and complexity to the whole mix.
WS-23 for cooling, as a soda should be cold! This is optional though, and use at your own prefered percentage, but I highly recommend it.
Mostly cold on the back of the throat since there's more polar blast than ws23 but I felt it needed a little coldness on the front end as well.
Flv lemonade is the middle ground between smoothie base and pink guava that pulls them together and fills it out. It also lends a touch of inherent sweetness while keeping it light and bright.
Reminds me of Arizona Green Tea.
Basically cold green tea with honey and lemon.
Mostly cold and honey on the inhale with the green tea and lemon coming out over the lingering cold sweetness on the exhale.
Really good off the shake but better after just a few days.
Sweeten to taste. (I didn't find the need to sweeten this at all though)
