I know there are tons of Watermelon Lemonades out there but, I was wanting to work up a mix I could use in my POD and be able to taste it without using 15 =% flavoring in it. As I like to mix with much lower %'s. So I knew I wanted to use flavors that were just stronger more vibrant flavors and what better flavor combo for that than Watermelon Lemonade.
I'm not a huge fan of Koolada so I went super low with it in this mix but it worked out wonderfully for me. It gives that slight cool icy feeling on the back of my throat and my teeth on the exhale just like When you take a big ICE COLD Drink. The watermelon and mix of lemons are really well balanced in this IMO. Watermelon upfront and tart/sweet lemonade on the back end followed by that cool bite from the koolada. It is sweet but not overly sweet which is how I prefer my mixes to be (just sweet enough). Over all I think this mix turned out just Lovely.
I let it steep for 3 days before trying it, 3rd day it was really good and smoothed out each day after.
Give it a mix and let me know what you think..
I was at a kids birthday party. My wife made a rainbow fruit salad and I accidentally ate a bite of pineapple and tangerine together. I immediately thought, this would make an awesome vape!
The taste was an explosion of sweet and citrus. I've been trying to recreate that experience in a vape and this is what I came up with.
Profile - Juicy and authentic watermelon mixed with a combination of red berries
FLV Watermelon / FLV Wild Melon - I find FLW Watermelon a very forgiving flavour. It can be used at low percentages as an additive role or as the main role. At 4%, stays right at the front note without messing the overall balance of the profile. It's the only watermelon I enjoy because it's authentic, juicy and doesn't fade so much especially at this percentage. Next, FLV Wild Melon to give a little more body to the Watermelon itself.
TPA Dragonfruit / TPA Honeydew - Both flavours make this profile even juicier and TPA Dragonfruit helps a lot here creating a bond between the watermelon and the berries.
FA Forest Mix / CAP Harvest Berry - Both percentages for my taste are just enough to be present in this profile. If I go higher, I start to get plastic off-notes especially with CAP Harvest Berry. Combined, the blackcurrant and the raspberry are present while the blueberry and the strawberry note stays right at the back being slightly present aswell.
CAP Super Sweet - Optional here but in this case, creates a more full mouthfeel.
This is a simple, stupid cucumber mix intended to meet or beat the cucumber mix used by the epidemiological pod device that shall not be named.
It's pretty good.
Cap cucumber gives it the mushy middle, FA adds in a bit more peel (Which of these are more attractive to the yoots of 'Merka is unknown at the time of this writing.)
Oddly, Since you'll see cucumber used in some cases to boost the rind note of many melons, I played around with adding some wild melon to boost the cucumber wet notes. I haven't played all that much with up and down percentages for this, but I'm pretty happy with it just where it is. :)
WS-23 gives it a bit of coolness to boost that fresh sense you get from biting into a good 'ole back yard cucumber.
Anyways.. Pretty fun little mix for pod devices if that's your thing..
Jumping on the 1-2-3 train with a fizzy, sweet strawberry melon drink. If you prefer, think of it as a blended non-alcoholic beverage using fruit puree- either way it's pretty tasty.
Fizzy Sherbet brings the bubbles and makes this into a drink.
Red Touch (strawberry) is the body of the drink..
Wild melon adds a candied quality to the strawberry. and gives it a pleasant melon flavor in the background.
Trying out some different accents for my last recipe, this is one of them I really enjoyed. Just going to go over the differences,and why I pick certain ingredients.
The first and most obvious got rid of the peach, and put in green apple. CAP green apple hard candy, is a great green apple candy flavor, that pairs perfectly with, FLV fire cinnamon. Also added a little FA pair to accent the Apple and melon.
Reduced the amount of vanilla swirl in this recipe. I made 120 mil test batch of mrs. Claus dirty melon milk, and it's gone 😋 so obviously I really enjoyed it. That said, I knew we should get away with reducing the vanilla swirl by a few percentage points.
Sincerely hope you enjoy, happy holidays!!!
Bonus recipe, this one was from last year, and still one of my favorites.
Loosely inspired by one of the first e-liquids I was hooked on, loosely an attempt to create something "commercial," mainly just something because evidently I really don't like mixing bakery stuff anymore. This is a pretty simple mix, but it's really enjoyable. Notes below, but they'll be short and sweet.
(FA Watermelon, FLV Watermelon, FLV Wild Melon)
I've been using FA watermelon for my melon note for a long time, but I always found it to be a little too subtle and "realistic" for a mix. I didn't realize that I even had FLV Watermelon, but upon smelling the bottle, I realized this would add that candied and artificial watermelon that was needed. Anything over 2% with FLV Watermelon tends to get a little harsh and offensive, but around 1.5, paired with FA's option, it's really fucking pleasant. Add that touch of FLV Wild Melon, and you've got a nice, fully fleshed profile that has some real depth and punch to it.
(FA Strawberry, TPA Strawberry Ripe)
Well, fuck me I guess. I have been pairing FA Strawberry and CAP Sweet Strawberry for so long, that I forgot about what TPA Straw Ripe can do to a mix. This combo provides us with a back-note of strawberry that doesn't overpower the watermelon, but adds some juicy backbone to it. I've found that lately, any mix that I use my normal FA/CAP combo on, it just ends up being a strawberry forward mix with accents of whatever else I had in there. This combination, at this percent, allows the strawberries to stay in back to support our melons.
(CAP Super Sweet/WS-23)
You already know what these are for. I don't normally like adding sweetener, but given that I was going for a more commercial idea here, I added two drops to a 20ml, and it's perfect. Brings some extra brightness to the fruits, while giving a little more mouthfeel overall. Just sweetness, obviously, but it's the right amount. WS-23 can be used to your liking, but 1% is a little too much, 0.5 - 0.75% will be perfect and not mute the fruits in the mix with ice.
No need to steep, just mix up, shake up, and enjoy. I've been gone for a while, I hope you fuckers missed me.
Okay I'll be the first to admit this is some weird shit!
Insanely creamy on the inhale, with a sweet and juicy melon top note, in the middle of the vape, you are hit with an insane amount of delicious vanilla, that blends in flawlessly with FLV peach, the edition of FLV cinnamon gives it a spicy counterpoint, to all the creamy, sweet, deliciousness that is going on.
can't really give you any steeping notes, I literally made this a few hours ago, just so good I couldn't wait to share it.
Super sweet can be substituted out for whatever your preferred sweetener. Or just leave it out if that's not your thing.
FLV Rich cinnamon, there are a number of cinnamons that could work here, FLV fire cinnamon is next on my list to try, I think it just might fit the profile better. If cinnamon is not your thing, nutmeg, cardamom, Ginger, and clove should all provide a nice contrast to the recipe.
FLV cream- 000 creamy milky undertones
This is a great, flavorful, refreshing, melon mix. I almost get an Orange Watermelon flavor from it, similar to INW Melon but a little better IMO. If I had to try to pick which melons I'm tasting I would say Watermelon, Honeydew, Cantaloupe. I'm not sure what exactly they were going for with this one but it came out really darn tasty.
