Mixers club: March 2020. The ice cream man @eyemakepizza is about to be a father. To toast this, I've mixed a green "milk".
It's a monster alright? Neither a blue or a pink recipe. The pun wrote itself (okay, that's a lie. @nowar wrote it), and the cream base is ripped right out of DAAPled pears.
TFA honeydew is delightful if a bit pervasive, it's almost hard to keep this fruit down to a manageable level to let anything else shine through.
TFA key lime is basically candy lime, green jello type flavor. Distinctly green but different enough that it sweetens the mix and stands outside of the shadow of the honeydew.
FA Aurora is sharp, like lime zest sharp. In this instance something that can really make itself known and fight that bully honeydew to a stalemate was necessary. It was important for the sake of contrast to find something that would stand side by side with the honeydew without clashing.
Special shout out to @rainbowdragon for helping with the art(okay, that's selling her efforts short, she did all the work) in this month's series of MC recipes
I wanted something citrus with a floral twist.
Cap blackberry gives us our base.
Fa blackberry adds that extra bit of floral.
Cap sweet lychee adds a nice tropical twist but still fitting in with overall floral flavour I was looking for.
Then to bring in the citrus I used fa aurora, which to me tastes like a limeade.
Super sweet is optional but does help boost the flavour a touch.
Ws23 can be added 0.5-1%.
Can be snv but give it a week an the floral n citrus notes will balance out perfectly.
Juicy. Tart. Floral. Mystical.
These were the words floating in my mind soup as I crafted this delectable masterpiece.
FA Aurora - This one here imparts a sharp, sweet, fresh-squeezed lime note near the top. It's very versatile and should be in everyone's stash.
INW Dragonfruit - Pitaya - The real dragonfruit flavor. This and JF Honeydew Melon form the unspecific desert-fruit base.
INW Cactus - Here is your juicy, sour, tart enhancer.
CAP Hibiscus - Here to provide humidity, sweetness, and the distinct floral tone you'd expect from a peyote.
JF Honeydew Melon - The king of honeydews and just incredibly complex and amazing on its own.
FA Lavender - To activate your throat chakra and speak your inner truth.
This has almost entirely replaced Grack Juice as my primary addiction. I hope you enjoy and I'd love to hear your reviews.
on the inhale a sweet buttery vanilla cake cookie that transitions to a sweet slightly tart orange
Tested on a Relaod RDA at 65 watts with a alien col
Sa madaline is a lovely and could probably go a bit higher is you want more of a cake note, but the the angel cake fills it out and adds light vanilla note
Aura will add a nice citrus zest note that works in this mix
Orange marmalade and golden syrup combine to had a honey orange note on the back end
I think this is a pretty straight forward profile. The Aurora and Fizzy Sherbet base give you that limeade start. Once I added the strawberry trinity I realized it would over power that lime so I added the Florida Key Lime and Tahity cold pressed to even it out. I get this earthy spice from the Tahity that I love, but I also felt the sweeter florida key lime would help minimize it in the mix. Overall I'm really enjoying this mix after a full day steep. On SNV its super floral and you can't really taste the strawberry. On day 2 the strawberry really pops. I think FA Kiwi could work really well in here so there may be a V2 coming.
Inspired by Lilt. I came up with this last autumn, when I wanted summer back in my life, but it’s taken a fair few iterations to get it balanced.
The Aurora is here to add a little carbonated zing to the profile. You could alternatively sub in FW Pink Champagne around 1% for a similar effect, but I like the brightness that Aurora brings here.
Everything else should be self-explanatory. The pineapples offer the main base, playing off the tart grapefruit from Inawera.
It’s good off the shake, but I recommend giving it 4 days for everything to settle together.
Based off a Bourbon Rickey... and well seeing as Concrete River's name is Rick and he put me onto Auroa which I love I thought I would use his name in this one.
Kentucky Bourbon = We all know and love for that boozy note
VT Bourbon = Has more complexity in flavour than the Kentucky so rounds out our bourbon heavy cocktail
FA Aurora = The real citrus bite that you need in a Booze and Lime cocktail plus it adds some "fizz"
Fizzy Sherbet = Helps boost that fizz of the soda water and general cocktail feel
FA Lime Tahity = Pushes it a bit more towards the "lime" rather than a generic citrus or lemon
The harshness seems to settle after a day but its pretty good off the shake
