Vaping something that actually tastes like beer would be gross. This is more of a collaborative interpretive dance inspired by a cold glass of Ruby Red Ale. Notes of hops, raspberry, grapefruit, blood orange, and frothy suds dance on your tastebuds.
Very much a work in progress, but after two revisions, this is getting pretty tasty and hitting most of the right notes.
The first version wasn't tasting "red" enough or fizzy enough. It couldn't quite decide what kind of ale it was..
Version 2 added raspberries, WS-23 to make it cool, and bumped the blood orange champagne up to 4% for more effervescence. Unfortunately it also picked up some cheap wine notes. Just a touch of Vanilla Swirl muted a harsh topnote and made the whole thing a bit smoother.
Version 3 dropped the blood orange champagne back to 2% and added fizzy sherbet to restore the bubbly quality.
Thanks to eyemakepizza and isuamadog, whose idea i remixed into this recipe and whose feedback made it better.

This is a Dominican recipe, and it smells terrible, but tastes good. It has that marvelous funk that is found in some tropical fruits, but none of the ingredients really stand out. If you don't like the funk, this recipe is not for you. I love that tropical funk and ended up going through my entire 15ml tester in one day. This might be interesting combined with a sweet cream, or condensed milk as is used in the original recipe.
The base of the recipe is the yam, but it is not a dominate flavor.
The top notes are provided by the fruits.
I chose the HS banana because I wanted a green banana to mimic the plantain in the original recipe, rather than a candy banana flavor.
The guava gives that tropical funk.
I wanted cinnamon, but wanted to keep it in the background, so I used CAP cinnamon sugar.
Tropical recipes frequently use sugar cane syrup as a sweetener, so I used VT sugar cane to add additional sweetness.
Here is the original recipe:
I have experimented with this at different wattage, and it seems best around 20 watts in a MTL device, much to my surprise.
Traditionally, the Mexican Paloma is served on the rocks and prepared by mixing tequila, fresh lime juice and grapefruit-flavored soda, like Jarritos.
In the US - the cocktail is often made with Fresca or Squirt.
This mix is very very much like Fresca with a dash of tequila and lime. iIt is incredibly refreshing and easily an ADV for me. tested on the reload s at 50 watrs.
The combination of citrus soda, honey pomelo and Pink guava really create a spot on fresca soda off the shake
citrus soda to me is a slightly flat sprite
Honey pomelo is a ripe bright grapefruit with out the biting notes and is slightly sweet
Pink guava brings out more of the pink grapefruit notes and at this percent had a very very light hop note which works with the tequila
Lime Tahiti pushes those grapefruit notes up top and is noted on the inhale
Tequila agave is hard to describe but to me it is very similar to cactus but slightly sweeter and wetter . it is smooth no harshness or booze in the least . I am noting it more on the exhale
NOTE I added a drop of WS 23 and FLV sweetness to add vibrancy and sweetness to the soda . CAP grapefruit could be used around 7% instead of Honey Pomelo but it will have a slightly bitter tart note and leans more white grapefruit then pink
My take on an Arnold Palmer updated with a smoother mix and less angst. While originally created as a concept mix, I did actually enjoy it. This is an updated version largely improved and yet different from original in many profound ways. It is a reimagining of life after being focused on problems, this here is the solution.
INW Plum/FA BC - Not very many recipes use Plum, but I loved its dryness, yet it was just a hair short of full. Plum to me is a bit thin at 1 and at 2 it's at it's limit. I wanted to give it a deeper fruity vibe and sweeten it up so I went with FA Black Cherry, and a touch of FW Sweetener.
FA Black Tea/VT Lemonade Clear/VT Sour lemon - This combo was used to create a lighter tea feel and a less sweet lemonade base to fit the dryness of the fruit. FA BT can probably be bumped up a bit if you want more tea out of it or maybe add a support with something less intense/more forgiving.
FLV Yakima Hops/Pink Guava/INW Cactus - This adds some very slight funk to the whole mix that at these low levels adds just a hint of tropical funk and wetness. It folds under the rest quite nicely to me.
FA Polar blast - I also mix this with Polar Blast at 0.4%,
You know how they say "nothing good ever happens after 2am"? Well that’s a load of s*!t. Per usual Alfred and myself (eyemakepizza) kept Isuamadog up waaay later than his bedtime, he strapped on a headlamp and we were feeling something tropical so we went to work.
We came up with Guava, Pineapple, Lime, and Apple, and some Fizz.

So normally this is where all the development notes would go. Normally. Problem is, there really aren't any. It just worked. FLV Pink Guava is the star of the show here and it does it so damn well. FA Lime Tahity Distilled and INW Pineapple are the background flavors here, they play off the Pink Guava really well. Even though Cap Double Apple is the highest % and our original intention was for it to be a dominant flavor, it ended up being very subtle and added a great bit of depth and heartiness to the overall flavor. VT Fizzy Sherbet does what we love it to do and adds some fizz into the mix.
Right on the S&V Pink Guava is very dominant, not to the point of muting out the other flavors, but it's there, it's out front and it wants you to know it. After a day or two, the Pink Guava mellows out a touch and everything balances out but also blends together beautifully. We are left with a super tropical refreshing juice that you're not going to want to put down.

Original Idea: pairing VT Gin with Honey Bee
Process: Worked on in the diy_ejuice discord by members who were present. Alfred Pudding was on a mission to find the perfect use for Honey Bee and we were interested in pairing Honey Pomelo with Gin. We were thinking FA gin which is less boozy and mostly juniper, and VT Gin was suggested as an alternative which we went for as it fit better for those alcohol notes.
Description: Boozy, citrus, slightly sweet/slightly cool, gin
Result: This is a great vape if you are finally looking for a use for your FLV Honey Bee. It's potent stuff and it's scary smelling. At 0.25 here it does its magic without overpowering. Links in with the citrus combo: VT Honey Pomelo, FLV Pink Guava, and VT Persian Lime which stand strong as an unusual citrus with a twist of lime on top of the gin base. A little coolant without ruining the hot boozy note and presto! We hope you enjoy this as much as we did!
