This recipe is for The Year of Mixing week -42 inspiration.
This is a blend of berry notes with a touch of citrus intertwined, softened by a gentle cream and sweet coconut flavors. The Candy Wizard is used to sweeten and add a jammy richness, while balanced with the sour notes of Sour Wizard, and everything is softly smoothed with a bit of TFA Smooth.
This works well as a shake and vape recipe, but if you find it a touch harsh shake and vape, add up to 1% TFA Smooth to calm down the harsh notes as long as you don't plan to steep it. If you are going to steep for the 2 weeks it needs to be fully steeped leave the smooth levels as is in the recipe. I do also suggest adding (if you enjoy it) 0.75% FA Arctic Winter (Menthol) and 0.2% WS-23 to this mix. It adds a lovely element to it that I quite enjoy. If you do not like menthol or Cooling you can leave one or both out if you dislike them.
Started as something light. fruity and cold (no hazelnut, 1% for each mint), but i felt like it needed a bit of a twist and some body so in comes FW Hazelnut.
WS-23 to taste. I like it @2%, 30%.
Respect (Illusion's Taste of Gods Remix)
In Memory of Aretha Franklin
A coconut, pineapple and blackcurrant mix
I've been working on this remix for quiet some time.
It was hard to nail the pineapple in this recipe because the coconut was overpowering the pineapple.
Allthough the pineapple is very subtil in the original it was very hard to get the right one in.
After I made the Papio Remix I had to revisit my Taste of Gods remix to check how the Double Apple and Sweet Guava would work in here.
Gotta say it was a pleasant surprise.
1.3% FLV Sweet Coconut and 0.1% FLV Coconut is the perfect combo to get the coconut taste from the original juice. However for me personally I lower the Sweet Coconut to 1% because it suits me better. If you want to get as close as possible with the original juice you should stick to 1.3%
4% FW Blackberry, 0.5% FA Blackcurrant and 1% FLV Boysenberry gives a perfect and sweet blackcurrant taste.
6% CAP Golden Pineapple, 0.5% CAP Double Apple and 1% CAP Sweet guava will give you that subtil Pineapple taste that holds up against the coconut.
Don't be affraid to use CAP Golden Pineapple that high because that's what it takes to even get a subtil pineapple flavor in it.
0.5% Super Sweet is optional.
You can vape it S&V but after a few days the pineapple and blackberry come through a little better
I'm mixing for a few years now. Most of my mixes are based on premium juice profiles.
My recipes are remixes and not clones. In my attempts to remix these juices I'm always trying to make
it as good as, or even better than the commercial juice without the loads of sweetener these companies throw in.
Give it a try and enjoy ....................................
Imagine if you mixed Brandy, Triple Sec, Blackcurrant syrup and then threw in a splash of Bourbon for good measure. This is what it would taste like. Take a walk on the darker side of life and give this a try. This gives you a delicious stiff drink without that pesky hangover the next day.
I used the Bergamot and Blood Orange to create a Triple Sec profile. It may not be exact but it was the ratio that I was happy with. If you do not like the taste of orange zest you may want to notch the Bergamot back a bit. The Dulce De Leche adds depth and sweetness to the fruits as well as mouth feel which is also why I added a splash of Sweet Cream. IMO a good hard liquor coats your mouth and lingers on the tongue. I am trying to recreate that texture. The Oak Wood is simply to add that "top shelf" cask aged taste to the Bourbon. If you do not have the Oak Wood you could get by without it but it really does pair well with the other flavors that I have used here. This tastes best after 24 hours and its optimal window is 1-2 weeks. After that the warm boozy notes tend to fade and the creamy caramels start to take over too much. So if you want to let it steep try cutting the Sweet Cream and Dulce De Leche in half.
This does not really need extra sweetener but I did try it with some Sugar Daddy Vanilla at 0.4% and it worked nicely. The photo was found on Google images.
Saw something about a Mango Blackcurrant chutney somewhere, and figured just those 2 fruits would be good together. I know it exists, but I wanted to put a little spin on it. I decided to go with a more natural coconut, not sweeter/creamier coconut to offset how sweet blackcurrant and mango are. This is a simple and low % flavor that tastes great.
I was working with another mixer, leptest, on a raspberry/currant profile. He went another direction. This is what I ended up with.
FA Blackcurrant is dominant here, turning the raspberries darker and highlighting the show. It sits on top here very well.
INW Raspberry/TFA Raspberry Sweet gives us a pretty potent Raspberry with a little bit of sweetness (EM) to tone down the floral notes a bit. If you're sensitive to INW Raspberry you can dial it down to 1-1.5% if you want. I can vape it straight all day long at 2%. Some people can't.
INW Shisha Strawberry brings more berry sweetness to the base and keeps the mix interesting, giving it that certain something.
FA Pear is here for juiciness and to lighten things up. I find that it keeps a leash on the syrupy side of Shisha Strawberry.
FE Lemon here in a tiny amount helps to lift and brighten the berries just a smidge.
I like this without sweetener and/or coolant. This mix is really great with a little koolada or WS-23 though.
