This is a very simple, easy to mix, easy to understand, Watermelon Lemonade, that focuses more on the watermelon/fruit notes compared to v1
Made for article:
Red drink profile submission for Mixin Vixens.
I mix low so you will more than likely have to increase (up to double) my percentages.
A quirky, indescribable jelly candy that will keep you guessing...
This is a jelly candy celebrating the unique flavour that is Li Hing Mui. WTF is Li Hing Mui I hear you ask?
Well, wiki tells us "Li Hing Mui is salty dried plum. In most parts of China it is called Huamei. It has a strong, distinctive flavor, and is often said to be an acquired taste, as it has a combination of sweet, sour, and salty taste. It has also been described as tart, and even tangy."
DFS Li Hing Mui can be described as the love child of plum, pomegranate and cranberry with a full, sweet and sour body. The taste is almost impossible to describe - some pick up Red Bull type flavours , some Gatorade type notes and others have absolutely no way to describe this intriguing flavour. The closest profile would be something like FW Jungle Juice, but not quite...
What it is, is delicious though - it is unlike anything you have ever tasted and once you taste it, you will be hooked!!
This juice turns a magnificent pink colour when mixed and makes it stand out from your stash - almost screaming to be noticed!
I added a touch of FLV Watermelon to provide a bit of familiarity and boost the juiciness just a tad. FLV can be subbed with PUR or FA Red touch at the same %.
The 27 Fish and Jelly candy provides the jelly body (duh!) and sweetness needed to restrain the punchy flavors provided by our main protagonist. This combination provides just the right amount of gummyness and works beautifully in unison.
The Vanilla swirl was added thanks to the idea by Wayne and adds that additional chew/fluff and slight vanilla flavour, which combined, takes this to the next level!!
If you are feeling adventurous and tired of strawberry, apple and freaking mango - give this one a go - you will thank me later...
Give this one 3 days to fully settle but it is good after an overnight sleep.
Week 1 of The Year Of Mixing - Inspiration picture used for the thumbnail. The aurora in the night sky against the white cold snow covered ground inspired this recipe completely. Nice cold frosty bite with the strawberry and watermelon notes dusted with a sweetness of powdered sugar and a dash of cap super sweet.

Melon Cream. It's good off the shake too!
Bavarian Cream/Vienna Cream
Vienna Cream gives that light cream with a subtle vanilla, Bavarian Cream thickens it up and provides that thick dairy mouth-feel
Custard Pi 3.14
This is used to thicken everything up nicely, it also adds to the vanilla slightly, and eats any of the harshness that the Lemon provides.
Tartness. It prevents the combination of creams from getting too heavy and thick through tartness
This provides the main flavour note, underpinned by Double Apple.
I wanted To see how a lemon/Citrus would work with a grape, not like a candy, more of a soda. Kind of. Ish. Sadly I was out of any lemons. It works pretty nicely, and will probably be nicer with the addition of some Koolada. It's still in testing, but have at it.
This is an annoyingly weak concentrate, but I fancied working with it, and trying to get to work is a nightmare. @ 5% it stands up as the main note without overshadowing any of the supporting flavourings. This is going to be substituted for INW Grape in the next batch, in the hope that that'll lend itself more to the flavour profile.
Citrus Punch/Oba Oba
Seeing as I was waiting on some lemon to come through the post box, I went down the citrus line. Citrus Punch also helps with drawing out, and adding a sense of fizz to the grape, and the Oba Oba was used to accentuate the tang
This serves two purposes: I personally feel in this context it fills out the body of the grape, thanks without actually adding a huge amount of flavour, and its refreshing nature adds to the soda-y vibe, and the juice overall
As Mentioned above, INW Grape is getting subbed in in the next batch, and I'm going to try it out with a hint INW Raspberry as well in the hope that it'll feel out the body better than the watermelon and add a little more natural sweetness/tang.
Koolada 10% would also make this a more enjoyable and refreshing vape as well. I'll play with some percentages and adjust the recipe accordingly.
