Decided to try my hand out at a black currant lemonade.

One Inch Punch is a fruit mocktail created by Guerrilla Street Foods I saw on TV when Mr. Flavortown himself went to visit St. Louis. After I saw it, I thought "Damn, I want to go to St. Louis!" Yes, words I had never expected to have uttered out loud. Well, this recipe is the next best thing!

SSA Garden Mint - This flavour is absolute fire! Straight up fresh mint leaves with virtually no menthol or cooling. Very potent, and can easily overtake a mix. 0.5% is the perfect amount.

FLV Sweet Coconut - for the coconut water part of the profile, subtle and adds a bit of sweetness.

Molinberry Funky Pineapple - This is straight up fresh pineapple chunks, no artificial or candy notes here. 2% is the right amount for this and most recipes. Crisp and clean, just like the Man from Del Monte!

FA Blackcurrant - This is actually quite a weak flavour, I find it blends the mix together. This takes the 3% spot, any lower and it just mutes things without adding any blackcurrant notes.

Feel free to adapt, remix, add a few drops of super sweet if you want, etc. Pretty pleasant after a day or two, but could be enjoyed as a shake n' vape.

If you can see your way past the floral from the BBC, this one will grow on you. TBH, I don't SFT, but rather, approach my recipes through trial and error, and a little guess work! So, that'll be the extent of my description :-) Anyway...lotsa flavor from an overall low flavor total, and an ADV, for me.

A dark tobacco with thick and bright currant.

FLV Native for the base tobacco.
FLV Tatanka for darker RY4-ish notes.
FLV Arabian for a deep tobacco and helping bolster the dark berry.
FA Black Currant for a brighter version of the fruit.
FLV Boysenberry to twist the black currant into more of a jam.
OOO Marshmallow Vanilla for some top notes and thickness.
JF Biscuit because I fuggin’ like it here.

Definitely a red gummy chew.
TFA Raspberry has an appropriate amount of sourness to give this an authentic red gummy taste. Enhanced by 27 fish and black currant it’s got a lot of that chewy classic red gummy flavor and then a pinch of lemon lime to seal the deal. I added caramel in as a darkening agent that adds to authenticity of a gummy texture and might even be the note that added that heavy corn syrup note that all candies are known for. I didn’t use any sweetener in my blend because I find it sweet enough but anywhere between 0.25% and 0.50% FW or Capella sweetener might just boom 🚀 this over the top and make it a comercial ready type blend.
I hope you Enjoy this as much as I do.
It’s a good shake and Vape but gets a lot more depth within a day or two and after two weeks it’s not fading so it’s got longevity power.

This is a clone/remix of TWELVE MONKEYS BONOGURT. Myself and 3 other mixers made 100s of versions over a year and a half to come up with this recipe.

Its all in there from the delicious bright non-descript fruit flavor to the cream yogurt with just the right amount of sharpness fron the Greek yogurt. There's even the phenomenon of getting individual flavors for a puff or 2 then back to the combined flavors just like the original does.

Best after a week but can be a SnV.

A sweet and juicy Raspberry Sorbet

Nothing to fancy but pretty damn tasty.

Enjoy

My oh my! This one is tasty as fark😅👊

And with only 6.5% flavor, this packs a lot a flavor. Don’t you worry bout dat 😎

You get a perfect balance of sweet syrupy strawberry, blended with fresh tart rhubarb and slight cool feel.

The SASAMI Rhubarb and the SUPER AROMA Garden mint is definitely the ⭐️ in this one.
If been working on this for quite some time, but I just didn’t had the ONE rhubarb to finish it if. Tried with inw rhubarb. That one got I bit to dry. Tried Vt rhubarb compote. That one was to watery, and was hard to balance with the strawberry without drowning the whole recipe in rhubarb. Cap just wasn’t the right tasting rhubarb.

But... SASAMI Rhubarb was it! Man oh man is that a GREAT rhubarb. It defines the whole recipe as a strawberry RHUBARB slush. If you haven’t got it yet. Go get it! Works wonders in bakery’s as well, if you are looking for a fresh authentic rhubarb👍👊

The garden mint 🪴is turning the ice 🧊 into slush. After a shake it’s very dominant, but after just a couple of hours it has blended in to the mix and it just works wonders with both creating slush but also gives the rhubarb texture and authenticity.

The black currant is there to make the strawberry “pop”.

... and if you haven’t noticed yet, I am VERY pleased with this one. And I would very much like some feedback on this one ☝️ 🙏🏻🙂

Tested on a Hadaly with a fused Clapton, 0.38, 40 watts 👍

Wow that's a bit dark, haven't we passed the era with all these cool names of eLiquid?

I'm not getting any younger so I am pretending to be cool ok, let me have my midlife crisis lol

How did I come up with this del-ic-ious recipe?
whooo ahh arr ahh, is that how a vampire laughs?
I don't know. I'm an old dag lol

Ok so my better half is to blame for this one, yes seriously.
She was one of those "Goths" back in the day & she has been intrigued more lately with my flavour stash since we got the new soda stream.
She wanted a lovely fresh blood orange flavour so I customized this for a vape eLiquid first because I'm still learning the ways of flavouring sodas.

Yes this is an eLiquid recipe though & I think it's worked out really well.
She wanted something cool with a just a lil something slightly deeper than your usual blood orange with also little cooling, hence the FA Blackcurrent & WS-23.

The rest sort of came by instinct, well sort of, but being experienced with the other flavors that I have used before that I hypothesized with here work well here & paid off I think.

So what is the profile?
Ummm, a Bubbly like Blood orange with a gentle vampire depth left with a little cooling that doesn't leave you in the cold.

I think it's a good one, but what do you think?
Let me know!

Regardless have fun mixing & staying off those dam stinkies!
Educate, advocate & be good to a mate!

I enjoy this at 65W on a SST single coil Recurve RDA.

I do a mixing show on YT if you want to take a look:

A delectable sherbet centered blackcurrant lollipop to keep you licking & licking...

FA Blackcurrant is uber realistic and nails a fresh, juicy blackcurrant masterfully. The earthy notes make this beauty stand out form the also-rans.
CAP Sweet Currant brings some sweetness and vibrancy while keeping to the authentic "greenness" of the fruit.
Candy Roll is a magnificent "clean' candy used to anchor the fruit & provide the the sweet goodness of a conventional lollipop.
A slight sherbet layer compliments of Fizzy Sherbet completes our delightful licker....
