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 have played with a fruity pebbles and milk recipe since I first started mixing, and have had some success and created a couple decent mixes in the past. But, they all seemed to be missing "something" I couldn't put my finger on it but it needed something else. This recipe is a spin off of one of my most recent fruity pebbles recipes. I added FE Lemon, replaced the strawberry with FA Juicy Strawberry and then upped it to 1%, Then..... I got the WF Vanilla Ice Cream in and decided to give it a whirl in my FP mix. And VOILA I finally found that balance and little "something" that was missing... I gave this one a short 1 hour warm bath, an over night steep uncapped, then capped to steep for 5 days. It is a creamy balanced fruity pebbles almost fruit loopy at times yummy vape. Give it a mix and let me know what ya think.. Hope you enjoy..
his was based off of a crown royal apple valentines day cocktail. Brandy is used here since there are very few solid cognac flavors that come across as cognac without some hard to avoid off notes.
On the inhale you get nice sweet apple brandy that transitions to with a slight tart lemon berry finish. Best vaped in an RDA at 60 - 70 watts (4.2v) this is a easy all day vape
apple-cranberry and two - apples work to create the cranberry apple fruit juice for this mix. Apple cranberry is just a great tart slight sweet flavor that is perfect for a cocktail mix Two apples has more of a fermented apple similar to a sparkling cider and works with the brandy
bandy has a sweet grape that leans almost dark raisin fruit note with a nice warm boozie . There is also a bit of an orange peel finish. it is ideal for cocktails.
Pomegranate and grenadine create a pretty solid genedeine type of syrup. WF grenadine is thin but has a solid flavor and needs help. FA pomegranate is really close to a solid grenadine so it is used here.
milk and honey works for some body and darker sweetness
Lemon FE is just a solid fresh lemon that will hold up and last in this mix , as many lemons tend to fade. honey Pomelo adds a nice finish to the mix and helps the pomegranate and lemon. f you want a more prominent sour note try a bit of VT lemon sour in addition.
NOTES: FA brandy can be used in place of VT but it does not carry a boozie note but will work nicely here are as well. I like a bit of sweetener with fruit so I added FLV sweetness at .50% . FLV cranberry can be subed for apple - cran for a tarter mix. but I really like that touch of apple in the cran apple.

I wanted a tangy lemon meringue without too much biscuit.
VT Lemon Meringue Tart is a lemon tart with a crispy biscuit pie base.
It is pretty nice on it's own but had a bit too much biscuit for the profile I was going for.
The lemonade cookie is not a strong flavor but I feel it is useful for acting as bridge between the base and the middle.
The middle body is FW lemon meringue pie, topped with more meringue to balance the added biscuit notes. I added FE lemon as it does not fade and provides the tangy kick I was looking for. VT sour lemon gives the sweetness and extra tang to the lemon.
You should get full lemon meringue on the inhale and the lighter biscuit at the end of the exhale.
Vaped using 0.18ohms at 55 watts single coil rda.
Rationale behind the marriage of rosemary, vanilla, and lemon: From time to time, my wife will simmer a pot of vanilla extract, slices of lemons, and sprigs of rosemary with water to scent the house. It is a delicious smelling aroma . . . and apparently, one of the scents that Williams-Sonoma uses to scent their stores (hence the name). I've always been enthralled by the scent and thought it might make for an interesting vape. Recently, she bought a cool mist aromatherapy diffuser and got amber vanilla, lemon, and rosemary scents to use in it. I found myself drawn to it. The amber vanilla added an almost bakery type aroma to the mixture, and I decided to get some rosemary concentrate to try my hand at this flavor. I got into DIY to scratch the itch for flavors that I could not readily buy . . . and this is something I've been wanting to try for quite some time.
I wanted vanilla to be dominant with lemon and rosemary falling in line behind it. This was not originally intended to be a custard, but I felt lacking the body of a custard really affected this and made it fall flat rather quickly. I knew I wanted it to have that same full-bodied flavor that I was getting from the aroma, so it needed that thick mouth-feel that only a custard can provide. This also helped add to the richness that I was getting from the aroma my wife concocts . . . when she boils water, lemons, rosemary, and vanilla, the scents come together to equal something much greater than the sum of their parts (I suspect it is due to the ingredients slowly cooking in the simmering pot).
Variations on a theme. This is a remix of my first shared recipe. This mix seems much more cohesive with flavors layering and settling in together instead of on top of one another. The lemon is a bit more prominent with the rosemary blending in and acting as an earthy accent. This is perfectly sweet without any added sweetener. All in all, I feel like this mix better represents the original scent that inspired it. I used Wayne's combination of FW Butter Cream and French Vanilla with TFA Meringue from his Maple Vanilla. I kept Holy Vanilla and Shisha Rosemary from the original recipe. I used FE Lemon and INW Lemon Cake for the lemon layer and used FA Custard Premium for the custard layer. I used OOO Vanilla Marshmallow to blend the layers together and for its extra hint of vanilla and mouthfeel.
Mixed 60vg/40pg . . . works as a SNV but give it a day and it shines. Enjoy!
Most of the strawberry cakes that I tried lacked the richness that I was looking for. With Paddy Cakes, I've added FE Sweet Rice to help fill out and lift the FW Yellow Cake to get a rich, moist yellow cake base; I love the way that the Yellow Cake and Sweet Rice dance and embrace each other. A little FA Meringue rounds out the cake and completes it.
I borrowed a technique @Shyndo used in his Mango Sticky Rice...the CAP Super Sweet is meant to tame the slight bitterness that Sweet Rice tends toward, rather than provide sweetness to the recipe, and it works very well, here.
I prefer the classic TFA Strawberry Ripe/TFA Strawberry combination, over CAP Sweet Strawberry/Shisha Strawberry mix, as I feel it works better in bakery recipes. The latter seems to sit on top, while the former seems to blend into the recipe better, and the TFA combo does not disappoint, here. A little lemon zest brings just a tad of brightness to the fruit.
I recommend an overnight steep, before the initial taste, to let the Sweet Rice calm down a bit. After 3 days, the recipe is very good, but if you can wait 14 days or more, Strawberry Paddy Cakes becomes amazing. Give this recipe a try, and let me know what you think. Enjoy!
The 7 DAY STEEP required will result in a vape with light fluffy angel food cake, topped with a sweet lemon-cream cheese icing. (Warning: vaping earlier than 7 days will be slightly 'Pledgey'!)
