Mixer's Club April Submission - April Fool's: make a tasty vape with one odd ingredient - FLV Arabian
I originally wanted to use LB WCPM to make an odd vape with tobacco. That ended up being a delightful ADV for me that I had no need for feedback on. So when it came submission time for this entry I was out of fresh ideas that I wanted to pursue (and test various failures of). So, I saw some notes scrawled on a post-it note by my computer and I remembered a mix that worked with an idea I had a while back to use FLV Arabian as an accent note to a bakery of some sort.
I have been really lazy mixing during Covid, mostly spending the time doing tests and write ups at the computer over the busy life I generally lead where I can make some tests and not have a chance to vape it until 3-4 weeks later when I next have time. Needed a quick mix one day and decided to try Kokanda's Sick AF. I like SC and MnH so why the hell not? I was struck off the shake how sweet it was and it didnt have a strong singular note that stood out on top of that sugar. I figured this would be a great base to play with and i probably over-complicated it with a couple of flavors I knew would pull it where I wanted. To top it all off, I added a few drops of Arabian and so v0 was born. The current recipe as it stands is a bit pared down. I am currently in love with WF HnC with tobacco thanks to Tesla DelMar and so I opted to leave out the MnH from the original mix. SC could probably go higher if I wanted a prominent 'cookie' vibe, but I didn't. I wanted it to be in this nether region between sweet and spicy, tobacco and bakery, sugar and cream. I chose WF Caramel Butter over FM or FA Caramel or an RY4 because I wanted it to play to the cookie vibe, HnC because good but also to add that nutty creaminess to blend the bacco to the cookie. Decided to see if I can bend the spice notes of Arabian just a bit with a touch of Cardamom. For me, 0.5 is about right but here I'm going for an indistinct blend of warm subtle spice. This is a new addition and I know Cardamom works but not sure if it will poke through enough at 0.15, but fuck it, let's try it. It is taking the place of FW Hazelnut which was there to boost the nut and overall vibe, I just felt it wasnt needed opting for SV for mouthfeel and to match that ry4 vibe. The Cardamom should add to the overall flavor, blend in nicely but also remain a distinct, warm spice that plays both sides tobacco and bakery while highlighting the Arabian spice notes. Not like me to play it light touch and, if anything, I am proud of my restraint.
Do mind the steep. I haven't actually pinned down when it gets best, 2 weeks is a minimum guess, 3 probably better.
Thanks to the support of the gang in MC for being such a cool group and always encouraging me to try new things!
Profile: Creamy vanilla rice pudding with a hint of cardamom
Quote @Zany: "Unlike Traditional Chinese Medicine - This will actually make you erect!"
We wanted to make a delicious rice pudding with hints of spices and vanilla without actually making it too thick and disgusting.
@Zany aka. Dico and I sat down and looked over which flavors we had that would fit such a profile.
The very first version contained VT Thai Sticky Rice, FM Pistachio, VT Yoghurt Drink, FLV Vanilla Pudding and TFA Whipped Cream.
To begin with, we only had VT Thai Sticky Rice on the table for the rice base, but we kinda figured out that it wasn’t enough rice so we introduced FE Sweet Rice to the mix.
At some point, we also had FM Pistachio in the mix, but the more we huffed and puffed, the more we kinda figured that it didn’t really quite fit in for what we were going for.
Pretty early in, it was decided that FA Cardamom would maybe be an awesome addition, so it was added. It somehow didn’t clash very well with VT Yoghurt drink, which also were just kinda weird, so we scrapped VT Yoghurt Drink early on.
Final addition to the line-up was FLV Sweet Coconut and it all just fell into place.
Concerning the taste of this mix, it’s not overly strong on the rice taste as VT Thai Sticky Rice comes with a hint of a spice note. It’s there to add some depth in the mix.
In combination with some notes of vanilla, coconut, a little cream to bind it all together and a wonderful warm and round taste of cardamom as a finisher, it’s a twirl of flavors that dances in your gob.
Please do let it sit for about 5 days to let it all blend in nicely together.

"Your task for this month is to make whatever you want, but then pick an additional flavor that typically wouldn’t go with what your base recipe is. "
This was my mission and I chose to accept it.
As a kid my mom used to make me rose milk all the time. Its a great little Indian version of Nesquik syrup. I've really enjoyed my Kheer recipe, but I've also really enjoyed my smoothie recipes which are basically lassi's. So I decided to go all pen pineapple apple pen and UNGH Rose Kheer Lassi. This is basically my Indian version of bubble tea, don't @ me.
For those that do not know kheer is an Indian dessert that is a rice pudding. Generally consisting of rice, milk, cardamom, almond and pistachio. I decided to use the first 3 ingredients. My go to for rice was always FE Sweet Rice, but I decided to switch it up and give the VT Thai Sticky Rice a shot. I gives you a nice sweet cooked rice flavor for the kheer base. The cardamom was easy, its always FA Cardamom. Next up we need the milk this is where the VT Peach Yoghurt comes into play. I don't get much peach from it at all and I get no yoghurt, but what I do get is a rose like flavor with some nice milky creaminess. When told @Zany I was combining VT Peach Yoghurt with Thai Sticky Rice he called me a monster, so that's how I knew I was on the right track for my mission. I added the VT Glazed strawberries for some added pink syrupiness, but its not strong enough to turn the rose flavor into a strawberry. The FLV cream rounds the cream base out. I wanted to add a touch of tart which is where the MB Greek Yogurt comes into play, its not quite as tart as I want it, but I'll get there.
This vape is a swedish pastry traditionally eaten around easter to fatten you up before the fasting.
There is always a rave in media with extensive testing of different bakeries and so on, and every grociery store and gas station with selfrespect sell them.
Often put in a bowl with some hot milk and eaten with a spoon. In this case it is called "hetvägg", meaning hot wall for some reason.
I stole some of that.
Came up with some of this.
Made some changes.
It is very good and suprisingly acurate.
My wife's ADV atm.
Steep it for three four days for the TFA Whipped Cream to get properly into the groove.
My take on the Indian Masala Chai.
I guess the only flavor needing a note here is FLV Thai Chai. For those of you who want a "chai" flavor, this is not it. It's rather spicy and works well for this specific recipe, as the masala chai is rather spicy and usually made with black pepper. The "chai" part is instead built from the ground up, with FA Cardamom being the star and FLV clove/cinnamon/ginger as support.
FA Bilberry = FA Blueberry Juicy Ripe (cause it's not added here yet - don't use bilberry!!!)
I was going for a pie with a little something other than apple. Originally I put 0.25% FLV Pastry Zest and FLV Basil in it...but I don't know if it is just me not liking pastry zest or if it really was clashing with another note in the recipe, so I altered the recipe slightly and it definitely tastes better to me without those two, though I am tempted to add Basil back in, but I'll leave this recipe as is and if you feel adventurous you can give it a go with the basil and pastry zest if you want to.
Check out Episode 94 of the Mixin Vixens to see the full run down of what I get out of this recipe.
This is a lemon forward citrus mix, with green tea accents provided by the Cucumber, Zen Garden, Black Pepper, and Cardamom flavors. 4 drops of FA Bitter Wizard per 30ml is essential (that’s less than 0.1%, but 0.1% is the smallest amount you can list here). I use Bitter Wizard in every recipe I mix, unless it’s meant to be very sweet. Bitter Wizard neutralizes the sweetness of the VG and uncovers the subtleties of the flavors. This is the first mix that’s entirely my own invention, and I’m very pleased with it. It tastes good without steeping, but the herb and spice flavors don’t show up until a week or two after you mix, so I recommend steeping it. Adding a little coconut makes for a good variation.
This ice cream is inspired by Vietnamese style iced coffee, which is typically very strong coffee served over ice with sweetened condensed milk. Vietnamese Coffee is just slightly lighter then French roast , smooth and not acidic.
On inhale you get a light vanilla note that transitions to the coffee/ cinnamon and ends with touch of cardamon. it needs a week for the creams to really fill out and become a nice rich and creamy ice cream
Tested on a Reload RDA tested at 68 watts on a .16 alien coil
Made on Freshes show on coffees https://youtu.be/ZqN1wzWIFbw
This ice cream is a custard styled ice cream - so @Freshepies quick custard base ( LB ice cream and FLV pudding) works ideally here.
The only condensed milk I have had any luck with is PUR - it just really works and worth picking up and helps fill in the middle of this mix
For the Coffee I wanted a darker roast that would hold up to all the creams and WF brazillian can do that - the Coffee liquor leans more to a coffee sryup and blends into the ice cream base. (Off the shake the coffee will be light but WF brazillian coffee tends to grow - so wait a week before you decided to tweak this mix to you preference)
Cardamon is used more in the middle east with coffee but a couple of recipes for Vietnamese coffee ice cream I saw on line included it, so decided to add it and I really like some of the contrast it providers to the darker coffee notes
OPTION: ADD WS 23 and sweetner to your taste - I wanted a touch more sweetener, as this leaned a bit on the savory side without it to me . I like a a little bit of cinnamon in my coffee - but not every one does so add the cinnamon brown sugar if it is your thing
So this is a Dr Pepper styled beverage using the spectacular @alfredpudding .007 cola mix https://alltheflavors.com/recipes/121307#007_cola_by_alfredpudding cola base . if you have never made this mix, you should - to date It is one of my favorite mixes. From the minute I tried his mix, I wanted to try and make a Dr Pepper styled mix -
while Dr Pepper may have 23 flavors there are several flavors that I think make it signature : birch/ sarsaparilla, almond/ amaretto/Cherry, cardamon and molasses are the key flavors I wanted to try and pull out
FLv root beer to me is one of the best root beers around and will provide that birch note I am after
FA almond provides that sweet almond extract / amaretto sweetness
WF molasiess is a dark syrup sweetness that works really well with the WF blackcherry jelly bean together I get almost a licorice type cherry note
FA cardamon is not something that you can notice unless you are really looking for it but I do find it adds "something" and you notice it when is it not there on the finish for sure
While this may not be spot on Dr peper for some - I think it is close and am really enjoying it
