I really like the versatility of Jackfruit, and I thought it would provide a great canvas for the other flavors. It has a soft, tropical fruit body that really helps bridge bright fruits together.
TPA Nectarine really shines here. If you've never used it, it's very similar to TPA Juicy Peach, but it has more of a fleshy taste. It's got a bit more tartness than the peach, and personally, I think it's juicier. It's the high note that brightens the entire mix.
I thought TPA Strawberry was the best Strawberry for the mix. With the other flavors, it provides that red, almost syrupy flavor that you'd find in commercial fruit punches.
FA Black Cherry was used because I felt like the recipe wasn't "red" enough without it. I know that might not make sense, but I can also pick out the red fruit flavors in a fruit punch, and the black cherry does a nice job of complimenting the strawberry- it adds more of an overall punch flavor.
FA Royal Orange was used to keep the nectarine in the forefront of the mix. Without it, the nectarine falls a bit flat, and it doesn't pop as much. Royal Orange on its own is somewhat of a soft, flat, orange flavor, but here it helps in keeping things fruity.
Koolada is obviously optional, but as with all of my fruit mixes, I think it helps in pushing the entire mix to a crisper, brighter level.
I know it might seem like low amounts for the FLV flavors, however, when compared to the flavor of the CAP Yellow Cake, if they are much higher they would overpower the cake and there would be no perception of it whatsoever. I did try an exact version of this with 3% JF Yellow Cake (all the rest of the recipe exactly the same) however I did not feel that JF yellow cake quite hit the mark on replicating the aromas experienced when actually eating a piece of pineapple upside down cake. Cap yellow cake is a little more bland of a flavor which represents the actual cake part which is not the main aroma of the experience of eating the real food. In experiencing the real food the pineapple and the glaze is really the star of the show, the cake playing back up to that (pretty much just the vehicle to get the pineapple and glaze to your mouth) and the cherries dance just along the edge of perception adding a slight sweet twinge of their almondy, vanilla, cherry notes mingled in with the overwhelming pineapple.
In previous attempts I have tried using both butterscotch and caramel coupled with the liquid amber in order to create the glaze effect, but it wasn't until I got the INW Creme Brulee did I find the perfect match for that sweet glazed taste. The Creme Brulee is caramely just enough to add the baked effect, but also slightly creamy to not overwhelm the mix with too much caramel.
I used FLV Sweetness as it is the only sweetener I can vape. If you are partial to sucralose as a sweetener and want to have this recipe a bit sweeter, my suggestions on amounts of the different sweetener brands are as follows: 1.75% TFA Sweetener (for mildly sweetened) 3% (for significant sweetness.) - 1% FW Sweetener - or 0.75% CAP Super Sweet. I prefer the FLV Sweetness as it doesn't over sweeten the juice but provides just enough sweetness to mimic the glaze and cooked pineapple.

Bilí is a popular drink from Vieques, a small island off the coast of Puerto Rico. Traditionally, it’s made by fermenting rum with quenepas, a local tropical fruit. However,i expand the infusing concept with other fruits. In this one, cherries, orange, lemon & Lime, cucumber and spiced cinnamon are macerated with sugar before infusing dark rum.
This is a digestif that packs a real punch, a very refreshing vape
FLV Rich Cinnamon 2 drops per 15ml!
S/V let it sit 24 hours, better or perfect 3 days.

The building blocks:
Flavorah Basil, the crown, the secret, the missing link.
On opening the bottle i experienced a freshly cut basil. I think it's more of an asian basil type than european, a ripe basil leaf aroma with a slight aniseed, fennel taste and with light earthy notes.
Flavorah Basil is fairly strong so i used .25% which is about perfect to give that basil feel and taste to the recipe and perfect to infuse my strawberry mix.
JF Strawberry Sweet and RF Strawberry SC, the perfect combination for me, adding a pinch of FA Black Cherry is like opening the gates of fruit heaven, it's like strawberries on steroids.
Tahitian Vanilla Cream 2% gives a nice creamy structure to the ice cream mix and adding the vanilla spices i was looking for. All that combined with 3% of my preferred vanilla ice cream from LB and you get the perfect ice cream.
Flavorah Cream 0.50% and FA Marshmallow 0.25% thickens the whole mixture even more.
What you get after a short steep of 3 days?
A fresh made and delicious creamy strawberry mix with lovely basil notes.
On inhale you immediately sense the basil with some minty notes and rich strawberries with a touch of black cherry.
On exhale the vanilla ice cream fills your mouth perfectly in balance with the rich and tropical vanilla aroma from the WFTahitian Vanilla Cream.
Finally, a strawberry combination that works for me.
(I am one of those people that can't hardly taste strawberries in recipes but can smell them perfectly. In fact i smell and recognize strawberries into all their facets.)
Makes it difficult to mix? Not at all
S/V sit for 24 hours but better or perfect when basil flavor get into the mix after 3 days,

I love the strawberry limeades from Sonic. I make one at home sometimes and the only thing missing is the seed flavor, that is the only reason it is still "In Progress" but this is the closest I have gotten to the profile without too much extra noise and once I find a strawberry with seeds I will update.
I am also open to suggestions on a flavoring.
"hey sparky" is just like hey, this is like a shock of rejuvenation!! at least that's how I feel about drinking these.. ;0)
This has been a little project of mine for a while, my first ever rendition was super close, but then I tinkered too much and it fell apart. Recently I went back and rewrote it, and I think I nailed it. Vaping this is like shoving a handful of lifesaver gummies into your mouth, it's sweet and fruity. It needs a couple days for the FW Hard Candy to settle in, as well as the CAP Sweet Tangerine to die down. Vaping it at lower wattage can bring out the cherry and pineapple as well as the tangerine a bit, I feel like it changes every puff into a new flavor. Higher wattage you can taste everything pretty well, its a very fruity mix. The watermelon isn't so prominent in the recipe, but it gives a nice sweetness. Meringue was just to sweeten it up without Sucralose or EM.
From @Queuetue : I find boston rounds to be the very best bottles for mixing and temporary storage. I use them for my VG and PG as well as on the scale while I'm making a mix. With a top that's easy to fill, easy to cap and with minimal access to air, I keep a bunch on hand for unflavored base, or whatever project I may be up to for handy, quick access.
The tip is small enough to use with most top-fill RTAs or RDAs as well.
