GOT inspired mix made for FRESH03 saturday show - A pear dominate thick syrup brandy cocktail
I have always been a Yara fan, and lets face it that lady has a set!
For this mix pear is the star, WF ripe pear is full sweet pear with some flesh and juiciness. The pear halves is a sweet almost canned syrup pear which adds the syrup note to this brandy.
Cherimoya fills out the middle of mix with some body sweetness and pairs really nicely with the pear.
The yakima hops helps add that slight bitter note along with the brandy to add the warmth to give the impression of booze
FA brandy is not very booze but really adds a dark sweetness and sort of softens some of the brightness to the pair.
Sour apple was added for a light sharp note to contrast some of the sweetness and adds another note to the pear
Based on a suggestion by @Fear on Noted, on how great a (INW) Am4A mix with some apples could be, and he was absolutely right. I gave it a bit of a punch, so it is not overly sweet.
INW Am4a - the base of the sweet tobacco for the recipe, wich calls for apples naturally
FA Apple Fuji - a great apple, but can be too noticeable or evident
FLV Sour Apple - another good apple, drier and green
FA Pear - gives the apples some juice
INW Absolute Virginia - Was afraid it might be really strong, but as it is an extract I find it really subtle (needs steeping!)
FA Black Fire - gives the spice, some great smoke (non ashy) without dominating all
Needs to steep 4 days (a week better) so it all comes together!
Every single one of us has a little bit of Devil Inside.
With this in mind it was past time to start playing with fire & heat and a few other little things that were naughty whoooo ha wha ha whaaa wa ahhhhh........
There are few lovely cinnamon based cocktails out there that seem very trendy at the moment so I thought I would take my chances and create one in a vape, so said the devil inside.
The devil on my shoulder made me lick test Flavorah Fire Cinnamon & Flavorah Heat, kids DO NOT TRY THIS AT HOME otherwise you may discover the same melting point of brimstone!
FUN FACTOID: The exact temperature of Hell cannot be computed but it must be less than 444.6°C, the temperature at which brimstone or sulfur changes from a liquid to a gas.
May I use some orange I ask Lucifer,only if it's with my blood he replies. Adam was around the corner screaming use this Sour Apple as Eve handed me some raspberries bubbling in citrus (so they didn't make it to heaven apparently lol)
With these ingredients I went to work for the Devil.
Are you pleased with what I have created I ask the Devil.
He replies "we all have a bit of me inside us all ha hah,
so let all those DIY'ers decide ! Whooo wooo ha wha wa ha aha ahhhh"
I dare you to mix this !!!!
So a little cocktail for St Paddy day! this is a sweet and slightly tart cocktail based on a Midori melon ball. On the inhale you get that bright citrus note followed by the sweet honeydew and bit of sweet warmth added from the bourbon. Good on an RDA at 60 watts after a 3 - 4 day steep. NOTE This grows a bit and the honeydew really comes forward after a day or so, so give it at least 3 days before deciding if you want to change anything to suit your taste
For the melon - FLV honeydew is the main note - it is a sweet almost creamy type of honeydew it is full body and has a slight syrup/ sticky sweetness note to it and seems to grow over time this need to be balanced with some wild melon and melon rind to add some more wetness of a cocktail
For the sweet and sour mixer i used a combination of citrus soda which to me is very much like a sprite soda with a lemon/lime main note - it is bright, front forward and also seems to grow.. Blood orange which brings a nice bright citrus sweetness along with some tartness and helps filling the middle a bit finally apple sour which is a sweet and sour candy syrup like note. This contrast is needed to create balance in a handcrafted cocktail.
Bourbon is used low here for some warm notes as you would expect in an alcohol beverage - but it is not booze . it also add some darker sweet notes to contrast some of the brighter top notes
SWEETENER: I added sweetness to mine at .5% as I like that additional sweetness which midori has but it is really not needed as the honeydew is pretty sweet on its own
This started out as an experiment to test Honeydew as I have not used it before (I have tasted it in other mixes, but never used it myself until now). I also had some FE Mango around that I wanted to try.
A soft tropical Juice putting attention on the Honeydewz! Using Mango as my boosting tropical background and Country apple to liven things up with a fresh fruit vibe.
I also added some FA Pear for a touch of moistness and some TPA Sour Apple for a pucker of tarty freshness of a delicious fruit Juice.
This vapes great as a SnV! and Strangely also changes flavor depending on temp/wattage vaped at. Lower wattages I get mostly Honeydew and Higher tempts a more blended Honeydew with the Mango and WS23 coming forward.
A Great Summer Vape!
SS- Leave sweetener out if you want to BUT I used 0.4% SS. Your choice.
WS23 - Push up to desired %
Give this a mix if you enjoy Honeydew or Mango
Sour Blue Raspberry Bubble Gum.
Bubblegum from FLV is stellar.
Blue Raspberry LB + Blueberry HS is a great combo for a solid blue raspberry candy.
Cactus for some juiciness.
Lemon Mix to make the berries pop, and add some more sour and tartness.
Sour Apple from FLV brings some tartness.
Candy Wizard from FA is a nice texturizer, brings some sweetness, and drives home the candy profile.
An accessible and dead simple green apple hard candy for people used to paying way more for juice. The fancy label and booth babes are in your mind.
Special shoutout to Flavorah and Liquid Barn for putting together the DIY Extravaganza at the Vegas Vape Expo. Mixers were breaking down DIY for attendees. This recipe was my attempt to create a quick, tasty, and "commercial" vape juice right in front of people on the fence about trying DIY.
As a "simple" juice, this is mostly about bolstering a single flavor into a fuller vape. Luckily, CAP Green Apple Hard Candy really doesn't need all that much help. It's a green apple jolly rancher, full stop. I don't get any of the acetone off-notes present in a lot of green apple concentrates here. It's almost perfect for a sweet, sticky and slighty warm hard candy vape. It's a simple profile, but executed really well. This recipe was specifically formulated to 16% to work with the liquid barn basic bottles, so the 12% is a bit arbitrary, but it works well there.
FLV Sour Apple brings in some support. It's another green apple candy flavor, but it isn't quite as full and sweet. The "Sour" part is pretty great though, and it just provides a bit of punch to keep the jolly rancher from building into something too sticky and cloying. Most "sours" aren't all that tart and the malic acid will gradually eat at the flavors underneath, hollowing out your juice. FLV Sour Apple doesn't seem to mute nearly as bad over the long term, and it really helps to set off the CAP. 3% of this flavor is a lot, but we're not in overflavoring territory and the CAP GAHC soaks it all up.
And Capella Super Sweet, well, it's a sweetener. The acids there seem to help further enliven candies and this is pretty much the perfect place for it. 1% is a bit high for a DIY recipe, but it's still on the low end for "commercial" stuff. It's also a candy recipe, soooooooooo..... But whatever, use as much or as little as you like. It's DIY. If Super Sweet is a bit harsh for you, then try FW Sweetener at 2 or even 3% for a comparable level of sweetness. This isn't the recipe for TPA or EM, and the muting with those options is probably detrimental with any kind of steep. I feel like you actually want a bit of bite with all that sweetness.
Can you add cooling? Yes, it's DIY. The recipe will work fine with it. Stick with a neutral coolant instead of something like menthol. I like .5% of 30% WS-23. You can go as cold as you want though. 1% will be "icy." 2% will be brutal. Again, it's DIY.
So there you go, this was actually relatively popular with the people I talked to, and I hope it's a pretty good illustration of how easy DIY can be if you stay out of the way of the flavors and just want to vape something that tastes good. For just 2 flavors and some sweetener, you get a good balance of sweetness, tartness, and depth of flavor. The level of flavor may be a bit obnoxious, but that's the point. You could make this more complex or less overwhelming, but I wanted to target an audience of people that were not already invested in the community.
I'll get back to 10 flavor existential nightmares soon enough, but I thought this might be worth sharing. As much as I enjoy the nerdier side of mixing, the show was a good reminder that DIY can be a bigger tent and I need to do something to help make it one.
Also, Shyndo came up with the name. I'm not sure if the DIY snobs or the juice line goons are Camp Tigerclaw in this scenario, but it's a cool ass name and sometimes that is enough. BIG TENT.
