So this is a Dr Pepper styled beverage using the spectacular @alfredpudding .007 cola mix https://alltheflavors.com/recipes/121307#007_cola_by_alfredpudding cola base . if you have never made this mix, you should - to date It is one of my favorite mixes. From the minute I tried his mix, I wanted to try and make a Dr Pepper styled mix -
while Dr Pepper may have 23 flavors there are several flavors that I think make it signature : birch/ sarsaparilla, almond/ amaretto/Cherry, cardamon and molasses are the key flavors I wanted to try and pull out
FLv root beer to me is one of the best root beers around and will provide that birch note I am after
FA almond provides that sweet almond extract / amaretto sweetness
WF molasiess is a dark syrup sweetness that works really well with the WF blackcherry jelly bean together I get almost a licorice type cherry note
FA cardamon is not something that you can notice unless you are really looking for it but I do find it adds "something" and you notice it when is it not there on the finish for sure
While this may not be spot on Dr peper for some - I think it is close and am really enjoying it
This recipe reminds me to a hipster homemade root beer I tried a few years ago in Bariloche, Argentina.
FLV Root Beer is the best in its kind but for my profile I needed more body and sweetness. Flavorah Cream and Butterscotch toghether create a rich caramel cream full of body and texture, and a bit of FLV Milk Chocolate adds warmness and a sutil dark note. FLV Vanilla Bean is an idea I took from @Thadentman and @Kopel and it works great to add a very natural vanilla and also boost the vanilla from other flavors.
When Jen Jarvis asked me to join her on her Flavor-Pro YouTube channel for an episode called "Fantasy Food Fest", there was only one recipe profile that popped in my head....Butter Beer. Yes, yes,...I know you're thinking.. "Folkart is such a nerd." And well, you would be right. I absolutely love the Harry Potter story line. My brother and I even dressed like characters from the movies for a midnight showing of the last in the Harry Potter series; Don't judge.
Anyway, Jen Jarvis asked me to create a recipe based on a fantasy genre and Butter Beer was it. Now if anyone has visited the Wizarding World of Harry Potter in Orlando, FLA, you would know that they sell the fictitious brew in the park. It's a combination of a cream soda, butterscotch, and whipped cream; A very delicious desert drink. However, being the Harry Potter nerd that I am, I dove a little deeper into this wizardly brew.
Wikipedia describes this witchy brew as tasting a little bit like "sickly butterscotch". Butter Beer was served cold in bottles and hot in foaming tankards. An extra sweet variant was brewed by Madam Rosmerta. Another variant was named Butter Beer 1707, which was considered very rare and could be ordered for delivery. And so, this was my quest to imagine what this rare formulation of Butter Beer 1707 tasted like.
I imagined it to be sweet, thick, and stickier than the basic brew. Although most real Butter Beers are made with cream soda, the 1707 version needed to have more of a bite, so instead I used FLV Root Beer.
The star of a good Butter Beer is the butterscotch. I used FA Butterscotch on the first versions but Butter Beer 1707 needed to be richer. So, I settled on VT Butter Toffee Base to bring a much richer "butterscotch" and add that butter note I was looking for. Paired with VT English Toffee, it gave it a more "sickly butterscotch" note.
I used FA Bavarian Cream at 2% to fill out the mix by adding creaminess to the mix.
Butter Beer 1707 should only be served hot with a frothy whipped cream atop. Therefore, CAP Vanilla Whipped Cream was my choice for this layer.
I added a touch of TPA Vanillin to lift up the Toffee's and added 1% CAP Super Sweet. If 1% SS is too high for you, feel free to lower it, but as I mention in my description of Butter Beer 1707, it's supposed to be sweet, thick, and sticky.
Ok, so now I can go back to the muggle world but I hope you will enjoy this brew on those cold winter months. Enjoy :)
You can most defiantly vape this as a shake and vape, but I would suggest a week steep.
I hope you will mix, comment, and or rate, it make us all better mixers. :)

Made in honor of Grimm Green's Banana's and Root Beer flavor profile. It's a weird one.
I used what I had on hand and I think the root beer works REALLY well with the candy banana from the LA Banana Cream. I used the TPA VBIC to add a little bit more creaminess and sort of blend everything together and the FLV Vanilla Bean because I really like vanilla and wanted a little bit more.
I recommend a 3 day steep to let the VBIC balance out a little and give the Banana Cream time to mellow out. I find it a bit harsh as a SnV but it's definitely vapeable immediately if you so choose. I'll probably adapt this a touch as I'd like some more of the root beer flavor but it's great as is.
Tasty S&V Rootbeer Banana Custard inspired by Grimm Green & Fresh03.
FLV Root Beer is an excellent Root Beer flavor used it at 3% so it would still come through over the cream but not completely over power.
FLV Vanilla Pudding & LB VBIC is FRESH'S S&V Custard and it works well to bring a nice custard like base to the mix.
WF Banana Puree: is a good banana flavor but has some strange off notes if pushed too high
VT Banana Custard: is not a banana custard at all but it is a solid REALISTIC banana flavor.
Recipe also works well with flavor West root beer but you have to bring the percentage way down between .75 and .5%.
Tried this with super sweet and just wasn't getting the right sweetness... that said super sweet would be a bad substitution at .5%

Mixer's Block sucks. Thank god for FLV Root Beer for sparking this idea and to my inspirations from Minty Down Under v2 from Rage and Anubis Nectar from Vurve.
FLV Root Beer 2% - I like this here as its not overpowering but adds that great root beer spice. I love this flavoring so much.
HS French Ice Cream/TFA VBIC/FA Merngue - This is the base for most of my ice creams, shout outs to Vurve's Anubis Nectar that inspired this base
HS Chocolate Cream/HS Australian Chocolate - This combo comes from Minty Down Under v2 from Rage. I love how these chocolates work together and they really work well with the ice cream base and the FLV Root Beer.
I get a good flavor of that sip you take after you drop in a scoop of chocolate ice cream into a glass of root beer and it starts to melt just slightly.
I mixed this at 80vg/20pg and let it steep for a week.
