So the Developed boyz of Summer stole my thunder with this recipe - ha! like I have thunder to steal. It does seem to me that these Blackberry/Raspberry Lemonade vapes are somewhat the rage these days, so I might as well join in with my Razzleberry/Boysenberry Lemonade recipe. Not much to say here other than the berry notes come out in the initial exhale with the Lemon lingering on for a while. While not a complex profile it is a pretty smooth and refreshing vape on a hot Summer day. The addition of Polar Blast at around 1 drop / 15 ml is optional, but I like the effect it gives along with the WS-23.
I usually vape this on a restricted air flow single coil RTA like a Kayfun V5 running 38 Watts into a Kanthal Clapton at around 0.5 Ohm.
I wanted to try and see how close I could get to the an actually curd rather then a pudding or custard and I think this is pretty darn close to that sweet and sticky tart lemon curd. I am happy with this as it is pretty much what I had in mind.
This was mixed for the PRIDE fundraiser, for the Ali Forney center for LBGTQ homeless youth on Fresh03 channel https://youtu.be/5Xa1eZqfwK8
The Lemon Square is pretty much full on lemon curd with alight bakery but needs some support to help it fill out - so this is the base for this mix
Custard by FA is the perfect custard to bring out some of the egg notes with a light lemon note
Fe lemon, and lemon Sicily bring a solid realistic lemon and a nice bit of lemon zest. VT sour lemon helps to carry that lemon to the finish with a bit of a tart note
Orange marmalade helps to add some depth to the lemon with some sweetness and sticky mouth feel
27 bears supports the sticky mouth feel that you get from a curd ( thanks @mlNikon I think it worked well )
NOTE: I added .5% of cap sweetner to help bring out the top notes of the lemon , and it really helps to give that super sweet versus a tart contrast , you can also bump that VT sour lemon to 3% of you really want more of a tart note. That tart note will dissipate some so this is best vaped with in the week of mixing , if you like a sour mix/
This is a delicious super flavorful lemon vape. The lemon needs about 5 days to mellow out, but once its steeped its the perfect balance IMO
The crust base uses INW Biscuit and pastry zest (Which carries a nice lemon note)
The lemon base uses WF Lemon squares, another delish flavor, along with FE Lemon and cap lemon meringue pie.
Fa Custard premium brings it all together.
Feel free to leave out the super sweet if thats not your thing, but I feel it contributes to the recipe and makes everything pop
Really have been enjoying this one.
If you choose to mix it, please let me know how you like it.
This is still a work in progress. Comments are welcomed.
Edit: Sour Lemon changed from 2 to 1% Thanks @Tamvapes for the suggestion.

Yes, it's another LMP, but this has taken me months to perfect, and is one of my favorites. So much so, that I seldom allow it to make it to a full steep. I wanted a LMP with a traditional crust, not a graham crust, and fresh lemon flavors that lasted, hence the name. I finally collected all the right flavors, and this pie is complete. Lemon lovers like me can appreciate it.
If you would like to use your own sweeteners, or go without, the NN Monk Fruit Extract and NN Stevia can be removed. The ratio I use of these two is perfect, pops the flavors, and saves my lungs and coils from damage, while providing serious sweetness. Less is best here, and I have no off notes. Look on https://nudenicotine.com/search?type=article%2Cpage%2Cproduct&q=Sweeteners* for complete information. They ship internationally.
So my base to build upon was the well known CAP Lemon Meringue Pie, it just needs help imo.
FA Apple Pie has an excellent pie crust flavor, and the apple is faint, easily buried by the lemon filling, and ends up just adding a light sweet fill. The crust was finished with JF Biscuit for texture.
The lemon filling was the biggest challenge for me, I wanted a full lemon flavor, without fading issues, and that wouldn't make me choke while vaping it. FE Lemon gave the lemon it's legs to last, fresh and realistic. CAP Italian Lemon Sicily and FA Lemon Sicily added the full complete lemon profile I was looking for. VT Pudding Base filled a double role here, both contributing to the full texture of the filling, without adding unwanted flavors, and the bready exhale just helped the crust even more.
FA Meringue was the best choice for me for flavor and texture enhancement of meringue offered up by the CAP Lemon Meringue Pie base.
Yes, it's complex, but it's good and not muddied. I have tried many different 'simplified versions' and they missed the mark for me. This recipe was developed for my own pleasure to vape, and there are plenty of LVP recipes out there to choose from. To thine own tongue be true!
Profile: Licorice rod with sweet citrus filling!
I started this off with CAP Licorice at 3%, FE Lemon at 2% and FLV Sweet Coconut at 1% and TPA Marshmallow at 1%
However, the licorice weren't strong enough and the FE Lemon didn't really stand a chance on it's own.
I tried upping the licorice to 4% (was too much!) and adding in VT Sour Lemon at 1.25%. Which just made it taste like citrus dishwasher soap with a shot of heavy licorice in it - NOT GOOD!
So I ended with the following:
I was very much against using sweetener in this, as I know CAP Licorice and sweetener doesn't always tango that well, plus I wanted to see if I could make a candy without any sweetener in it.
I dropped the FE Lemon a bit to avoid the soapy flavor it potentially can add and brought in FA Blood Orange to help it. The Blood Orange also brings some of the sweetness I felt would fit a candy and 0.75% seems to be just right.
Both the marshmallow and meringue serves is the texture for the filling and helps the candy flavor on its way too.
I feel this profile fits people who don't like black licorice that much, but also works as a great entry into the world of licorice vapes.
Feel free to give it a mix and a review - even if you're a licorice hater <3
