One year while working lakeside at a really epic tattoo studio, I made my second home at this really stellar Mexican restaurant. Aside from their mexi-dip that would have me getting outta bed for midnight cravings, they served this in-house made Sangria that led to me sleeping in their booths more than once. You'd get these massive jugs for 20$, they'd put citrus slices & cherries In there that would sink to the bottom & be the most delish booze soaked treat to fish out the bottom after you polished off a jug. This sangria was so fresh & fruity that you barely tasted the alcohol, so couple that with the price, ergo; booth bed!
This place has since closed the franchise taking their recipes to the grave :'(
I was attempting to make a sweet & slightly boozy sangria without the chill factor because I don't like any sort of cold feeling in my juice & also because the way I was taught to drink sangria by my ex GF's mom who grew up in spain is at room temp (something about the smoothness of the wine and brandy?) but in the heat sometimes with chilled perrier & cold fruit. I DID try it with a drop (15 ml) of WS23 in it but just didn't like the taste, you can add if its palatable to you.
I am finally finished with this recipe which initially started out as just 8% RF sangria and 2% champagne which, simple as it is, is UHmazing! But since I started out with this intending a more complex recipe I kept tweaking & playing with it & have come up with something juicy, boozy, bubbly, fruity...and in perfect time for our stupidly late warm weather.
When I first tried RF sangria in a single flavor sampling...OMG it is just so good!! Dare I say it was almost one hit wonder right off the shake (hey theres always a 1st!)
(if you have the non SC version of sangria, it should be increased to 8%)
Champagne gives it a touch of bubbly booziness which is enhanced by the soda base (you can almost feel it fizz on your tongue on the exhale) & liquid amber. The combo gives such a contradictory but unique mouth feel.
Mexican cactus gives it some juiciness (really an awesome flavor from Molin Berry, if you haven't tried it, do it NoW!)
The fruits; Royal Orange juice, Lemon, cherries/black cherry, shisha lime are for the fruits added to the sangria
Its honestly sweet enough on its own but I enjoy it with 1% SS or 2% ricks sugar daddy (depending on whether I have some coils to burn..nyuk nyuk)
Id love to hear anyones thoughts if they mix this or suggestions as to what to add. I'm new on here, never been the type to "show my work" but figure if I'm taking, I should give as well :)
The popsicle that was made popular by the ice cream trucks all over the globe. They also go by the name Rocket Pops and Firecrackers, and I'm sure there's a few more names for them as well. These popsicles had a lemon/cherry/blue raspberry flavour, which i'm sure most have enjoyed at least once in their lives. I know Flavor Art has this specific flavour called Booom, but I feel that this is more realistic and layered. Please give it a try and let me know if this hits the profile. I am still going to try and get it closer, but I think it's close enough and I want to move on to something different.
Lemon Flavour - LA Lemonade / FA Lemon Sicily - The lemon from the BombPop gives me the taste of lemonade so I went with this combo.
Cherry - FA Black Cherry - Not a huge fan of any cherry flavour available ATM, but I feel that this seems to work best.
Blue Raspberry - CAP Raspberry / CAP Juicy Peach - This combo tastes like a blue raspberry to me, and apparently others feel the same.
Add WS-23 if you'd like, but you can leave it out if you wish or don't have in your arsenal.
Refreshing hawaiian tropical rum styled vape
RF SC Baja Soda, it seems RF reinvented the bubbles, a fizzy taste of tropical lime.
Myrtle (SA) is my choice for this mix, its having a very light menthol and spicy taste that goes very well with the mix.
It can be subbed with a blueberry of you choice, i would recommend the TFA Blueberry Extra if you do sub.
I added WS-23 but it can be made without the cool, you miss some of the ocean breeze tho :-)
No need to add sweets on this one, enjoy the vape.
s/v but let it sit for 24 hours.
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,
