A Blood Orange Sour Bourbon is exactly what I was longing for these hot days. This was the starting point to recreate this as an enjoyable vape.
FW Blood Orange brings the full fruit with the right strong bitterness to it but was on its own a bit overwhelming in providing the Blood Orange as the main note in a reasonable percentage to stand the other flavors. Adding FA Blood Orange in a 2:1 ratio helped in that direction.
For the Sour, I had a look on several bartender blogs and found multiple ratios of Lime or Lemon with straight sugar syrup. The TPA Key Lime with the CAP Super Sweet does the trick in the mix and complements the Blood Orange main note nicely.
The Bourbon was with a mix of TPA Kentucky Bourbon and FLV Bourbon a solid well-known combination to start with. The TPA Toasted Marshmallow added a hint of smoky notes with the advantage of really mellowing all the flavors together and increasing the mouthfeel.
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:
This is my orange cake for this weeks profile pic on mixin vixens. I wanted to take this opportunity to use some new wonder flavors. I love how dark and buttery this turned out and the orange compliments it nicely. Inw shisha orange is a very sticky sweet italian soda type orange that I thought would go well with the dark sweetness of the cake and used fa blood orange just to punch it up a bit with some brightness that is also deep.
If you like the vixens and want to support is in a fun and tasty way, check out our one shots at flavor jungle.
I made this recipe a year and a half ago for my girlfriend and my stepbrother and they vape at least 60ml each every month... I thought it would be nice to share it since they enjoy it so much. To me it's a cross between the orange powder fun dip and the cheap little orange gumball that you get at Halloween( with a touch of lychee of course but it's tasty😋). It's ok S&V but a little bit harsh for me, give it 3 days to calm down.
This recipe has turned out really nicely, and I will continue to expand on it. 50/50 Lime Bar is an underrated flavoring that packs a nice candied lime with subtle cream. That's utilized as the main sherbet note, with the blood orange and pink raz filling out the rest of the profile
It's a very bright recipe, with lime and orange citrus dominating the profile. The finish is accompanied by the raz. The depth, while simple, does pack in all three flavor profiles, which seem balanced nicely.
Lastly, I want to improve this recipe by utilzing a different orange. Something that will pair with the lime a bit better, something as bright and as sweet. I also want to add a bit more of a cream note (think yogurt actually, for a "Yerbet". So stay tuned to my recipes here, and on my YouTube for updates on this profile.
