Alabama Apple Pie Moonshine straight from the backwoods and ready to vape. Created from the same recipe that my husband uses to make his famous moonshine for football nights. Apple Stark/Fuji (At home it's straight Apple Juice) with the dragonfruit give this its great apple punch (we don't use cider in the real thing and didn't do it here). Bourbon gives it the punch of liquor flavor and the Rum while not boozy adds a little something to that Bourbon. We always use Sugar so it's present here in the sweetener and the brown sugar to give it a little depth. And the last note is the cinnamon because we always put a few sticks of it in the 5 gallon drum.
FLV Yam and Eggnog are the stars of this recipe and they give you a GREAT pumpkin pie filling. Yam tastes JUST like pumpkin puree without added spices from the can. The Vanilla custard makes it richer along with the sweet cream. Graham cracker clear and the sugar cookie are for the sweet crust. Cream Cheese Icing is used here as the sweetener. I've been working on this recipe for three years and feel that I finally got it right! I omitted the cinnamon from my version as I can't vape cinnamon, but I had a friend taste test the version with cinnamon and mine and he feels it's even better with it.
Sagamore REMIX... again.
Sagamore by Adirondack vapors (along with their delicious chai flavored McKinley or Saratoga, their rendition on the tried and true strawberries and cream) was the stuff that got me off of smokes when I got my first vape. Since I've gotten into DIY, I've been cloning and remixing these 3 often. Sagamore is simply a RY4 with a bit of cupcake, creams, cinnamon, maybe graham cracker. In this remix, I forego the cracker, the extra creams, and the obvious choices like TFA RY4 Double, CAP CDS, or CAP Vanilla Cupcake. Instead, I went in a different direction but aimed to keep it simple. Think I struck gold. A thick, smooth caramel, touch of tobacco that cuts through all the heft, a nice cakey base to build it all upon, with a hint of that good ol' cinnamon tickle.
This one's solid, cost effective, and easily an ADV or big-batch worthy. Give it a go :)
Sometimes the logic works better then memory. I never had something like this recipe in my life, but I knew that these ingredients should work well together. So I mixed them and... BOOM. It's delicious!
THE RICE BASE
FE Sweet rice 3% and just 0.25% of FA cinnamon ceylon it's what I always mix when I want rice desserts.
FLV Sweet coconut 3% is the true fruit, the white pulp of coconut. But it is weak, so I need a bit of commercial coconut flavor. Fa cocò 1% it's the perfect pairing.
I need a sweet candy pistachio here so I use RF pistachio at 2%
FW blood orange is a complex flavor: it has a fruit part that talk with coconut and a bitter part to make a compensation to the sweeteness of RF pistachio.
You need a 0.5% of sweetener to help the coconut to rise up and to mute down the rice off-note.
I'm very proud of this recipe and I have to thank a lot of mixers for inspiration: @ENYAWREKLAW for his note about FE sweet rice, all the NOTED crew ( @mlnikon - @ID10T - @CheebaSteeba ) for their explanation of RF pistachio and FLV sweet coconut.
Enjoy and don't forget to review.
Apple crumble! The apple is not subtle, the cinnamon is not overwhelming, and the crumbly graham is on point :) Hope you enjoy it!
Apple Fuji FA + Pair of Pears INW make a nice melty apple, Two Apples INW is added as a fruity apple sweetener. Two Apples INW can work on many fruit mixes as a sweetener, if you keep below 0.5 the apple taste won't be overwhelming (give it a go in pineapple mixes!). The apple in this recipe is not "baked", but sweet and melty.
Cheesecake (GC) TPA + Biscuit Base VTA + Graham Cracker FW create a crumbly, slightly buttery graham cracker base.
Bavarian Cream TPA + Vanilla Bean Gelato TPA are added for mouthfeel, fluffiness, and to blend everything together.
Cinnamon Ceylon FA is a bakery cinnamon, not spicy at low percentages. Can be omitted if you don't want the cinnamon in here. I wouldn't replace it with a hot and spicy cinnamon in this mix.
Let it steep a bit, the crackers used here need some time to develop the full flavor and mouthfeel.
I may be the only one crazy enough to try to pull off a full recipe chai from scratch but here we go.
Your classic Masala Chai spices are usually made up of:
For the main note, I chose FA Cinnamon Ceylon at .75%. It is a bakery-type cinnamon that is perfect for spiced beverages that mixes extremely well with the next spice.
FA Cardamom at .5% is a sweet, green, true cardamom flavor that no other company does. Thank goodness FlavourArt does it right. You cannot have a chai recipe without cardamom.
FW Ginger has a fresh ginger root flavor. Too much, even .5%, can over take the mix. I found the sweet spot for this mix to be .25%
TPA Holiday Spice at .5% stands in for my Nutmeg spice. I love this flavor for any winter recipe.
FLV Clove at .30% is perfect to make this bold and spicy. Someone once said, "FLV Clove is pretty damn analogous to FLV Rich Cinnamon in that it's bold, ridiculously strong, way too expensive, and pretty great." I fully agree.
The last one I am sure has a lot of people scratching their heads. FA Black Pepper at .5%. It's a warm, woody spice that is a delicious addition to this recipe.
Then I added the FA Black Tea and made it sweet; And for the milk component, I went with FA Vienna Cream 1%, which really stands out when you add spice, FA Vanilla Tahity .5% for sweetness, and FA Cream Fresh 1.0% for bulk.
This puppy needs a 5 day steep and a day or so to breathe. Do not skip the breathing. It needs to breathe off some spice.
I wouldn't say it's an ADV, but it's definitely tasty with the cool weather coming.
