As the summer slowly arrives I've been craving for a fruity refreshing recipe. For some reason that got me back to my summers as a kid in the countryside. I used to love my honeydews with some lemon juice over them to combine their sweet taste with a sharp citric note.
For some other reason I also recalled my times in Istanbul. There you often find people selling in the streets freshly pressed pomegranate juice. I used to dig its refreshing yet sour and slightly floral taste.
So this recipe is my take on combining both experiences. I'm going for a fruity floral vape with sweet, sour and citric notes to it.
TFA Honeydew II is pretty accurate but fairly thin and weak. So I'm helping it with some FLV Wild Melon, which is mainly a honeydew but with more potency and other melons going on.
CAP Pomegranate brings out a pretty realistic floral juicy sour note.
FA Lemon Sicily adds the citric note I'm looking for. INW Cactus the usual juiciness and a bit more sourness.
CAP Supersweet brightens it all up a smidge.
All in all a refreshing summer vape!
P.S. This is my first public recipe. So all comments/critics welcome.
I've always been a fan of FA Grape White, it's an nice authentic fruit profile but on it's own in a vape, it needs some love to make things more dynamic. IMO
Grape Juice TFA - the grape juice is used to push the grape to a sweeter profile and give a bit more brightness. I would experiment with other grapes as well to see what works best. I haven't had a chance to try anything else yet.
Double Apple CAP - A great apple taste thats authentic and doesnt really need any other help to get there.
Wild Melon FLV - This keeps things a bit more fruity rather than candylike.
TPA Black Currant - I find this really helps round the flavors out and bring them together. This is optional and totally up to you.
Let me know what you think and if you guys try anything else, let me know in the comments.
Liquor portion inspired by https://alltheflavors.com/users/Juicefairy and her delicious Tipsy Coconut (It's great!), but I bumped up the "call an Uber" factor a smidge to make sure the creams don't drown that aspect out.
FA Cinnamon Ceylon for good measure.
FLV Wild Melon and FLV Cantaloupe make up the melon profile. FLV Wild Melon is great, but I've not used FLV Cantaloupe before...no time like the present.
Bavarian Cream, Cream and Vanilla Swirl complete the recipe with a thick and rich milk base to tone down any sharpness found in the liquors and tie the whole recipe together.
This recipe was originally called Red Hot Melon Horchata and I used FLV Red Cinnamon which is a fireball/red hot candy type flavor. I thought it would be a good twist but even at 3 drops per 30ml it took over the entire recipe. I was forced to go with a safer FA Cinnamon Ceylon.
Soda base adds the fizzy bite.
Wild melon, watermelon, watermelon candy make the base watermelon flavor.
Pear candy adds the body.
Yumberry adds slight tartness to the soda base.
Dragonfruit helps lift the watermelon candy making it a bit brighter.
Cotton candy adds to the candy quality.
Add whatever about of sweetner you prefer.
I normally don't release a recipe so quick, but I mixed this up yesterday on a whim and god damn did it come out perfect. I'm going for a melon mint gum. I didn't want an actual bubblegum flavor, more of an orbit or trident style gum. So I went with RF Taffy base and TPA Marshmallow to get the actual gum portion. Everything else fell into place right where it needed to be. Summer is right around the corner and I see this in my regular rotation so give this one a try if this sounds like something you might enjoy. Shake and vape approved.
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.
