You like strap on recipes? How about a prickly strap on? Sounds painful? Well, i'ts actually pretty tasty.
Since I've received Inawera's Prickly Pear in my last order, I've been tinkering around with it a fair bit. Searching for a nice fit for a great flavor. And this is what I came up with. Many iterations later, this is my (for the foreseeable future) final version of the Prickly Strap On!
INW Prickly Pear:
The main flavor. It's a bit like INW Cactus, but sweeter and more fruity. Just a great single flavor that, as it turns out, mixes really well with other ingredients.
FA Red Summer & CAP Sweet Watermelon:
The first versions of this recipe only had Capella's Sweet Watermelon, and tough being pretty good on it's own, it really drowned in the other flavors. This is where FA's Red Summer comes in. Those two combined give the recipe a very nice watermelon base.
CAP Sweet Strawberry & INW Shisha Strawberry:
A similar story as mentioned with the watermelon, but this time I felt like the INW's Shisha Strawberry needed a little boost, and CAP's Sweet Strawberry really helps. I've also tried TPA's Strawberry and Strawberry (Ripe) in previous batches, but didn't liked it at all.
My apple of choice. As many of you probably know, this flavor can be very overpowering. This is why there are no other apple flavors in here. In my opinion, this suffices to get the apple across in the recipe.
I usually mix it with 0.5% WS-23 (10% dilution in PG). It's very sweet on it's own, so I don't recommend using any sweeteners.
But I'm not your dad, so make your own decision on that.
It's nice right off the shake, but for the full flavor experience I would recommend a 3 day steep at least.
I hope you find as much enjoyment with this recipe as I have, and have a nice vape!
Once more, this recipe exists because of Foment_life's spectacular pear trinity, as found in his recipe DAAPled Pears. The combination of FA Pear, TFA Pear, and FA Fuji is hands down the best, most realistic pear I've ever had in vape form. I'll, again, repeat what I said in my review of DAAPled Pears: it is a smooth, sweet, crisp work of art. Using it in a take on Charlie Noble's Commodore Peary ( recipe released in 2017: https://charlienoble.com/blogs/the-not-so-discontinued-series/the-not-so-discontinued-series-commodore-pearry ).
Yes, the name is long and flowery . . . no, this is probably not a recipe for the percentage minimalists out there. However, this was a recipe I envisioned while drifting off to sleep last night (which has become common practice in this time of safer-at-home). It is Foment_life's pear utilized in a Commodore Peary-esque recipe, where Holy Holy Grail RY4 acts as the caramel note (instead of FW Caramel Candy). VT Vanilla Cream instead of the FW Bavarian Cream and CAP French Vanilla V2, FLV Sweet Coconut instead of CAP Coconut, FA Custard Premium instead of CAP Vanilla Custard V2, and TFA Red Oak just because I like the way it plays with custards.
The painting is from N.C. Wyeth's cover art for The Bounty Trilogy . . . the emblem is from the book cover beneath the dust jacket. I just thought it went well with the ideas of dissent against a boat's captain and what not. Great off of the shake . . . this 15mL will not see tomorrow. Enjoy!
Crap! You're late because you got caught up enjoying this sweet and delicious crepe filled with smooth buttercream with apple chunks and crushed almonds, topped with a gooey spiced amaretto sauce. Still have to get to that AA meeting though!
So I've had this sitting around awhile and it seems to have gotten a bit harsh even though it was smooth to start with. I am trying to work out of it's the apple, the cinnamons or just my change in hardware.
Update 2: lowered the fuji, marzipan and crepe. Much smoother now.
This project started out as an attempt to clone the popular commercial liquid with a similar name. Orgasm by One Up is a staple in my wife's rotation, and if she could find it by the quart, I'm quite certain she'd buy it. After mixing several iterations of my take on what's in it, I've settled on this one. While I believe I fell short on the clone aspect, it came out PDG! You may find this plenty sweet without the sweetener,but, the original is loaded with it. I'd like to know what you think about this little diamond in the rough.
Stay Safe...And keep mixing!
The inspiration for this one came from trying an Apple and Mango juice I’d picked up from a supermarket. It was the first time trying the Apple/Mango pairing and I can say for sure that it’s not the last time. They go so well together.
FA Fuji and FLV Mango were no-brainers for me. They are two of my favourite concentrates. Very authentic tasting! I used FA Pear to sweeten and juice up the mix a little more. It’s such a light flavour, that it doesn't take away from the goal profile, but supports it. Sweetener and coolant to taste, if desired.
It’s another simple 1-2-3 recipe and I hope you enjoy it.
Let's make one thing clear from the start: I love anise. I can vape that stuff all day. If you don't like anise, don't even think of mixing this up.
With that out of the way: I've tried many commercial anise apple juices. But they were all lacking that certain "something" or were loaded to the brim with sweeteners. So I've decided to make my own anise apple recipe. And let's just say, after testing many apple flavors I think I nailed it with this mix. So let's get started:
FA Anise: Just straight up the best anise flavoring on the market imo. Nothing more to say, i'ts mandatory for this mix and not replaceable.
FA Fuji: As many of you know, it's the of the best apples on the market. It fits perfectly here at 2% to be present in the mix.
INW Shisha Golden Apple: The secret weapon of the recipe. It's just an awesome apple and gives the recipe that little special something.
CAP Double Apple: This is used here as the apple base and is a great flavor all around.
I like to add 1% WS-23 (10% dilution in PG). You can decrease the amount or leave it out completely, you call.
If you love anise as much as me than this can easily be SNV. If not I would suggest a 5-7 Day steep to let the anise calm down a bit.
Happy vaping and all hail to king anise!
A little experiment that turned into one of my ADV's. It's weird, it's unusual, it's tasty af. Can be SNV but is best after a 3 day steep.
FA Papaya: The main star of the recipe. To me, it kinda tastes "pink" in a way and pairs very well with floral notes, that's why...
TPA Cherry Blossom: ...is in here, same as FA Rose. Those two in combination with the Papaya really give it that sort of "weirdness" that's making this so addicting for me. If you don't have FA Rose, you could get away without it, but there would be something missing.
FW Blueberry & TPA Boysenberry: These two combined in here bring the sweetness of the FA Papaya down a bit and add a bit more texture and juiciness. Especially the TPA Boysenberry brings out a certain sort of "bite".
FA Fuji: Tbh, it's in here because I'm addicted to it and sneak a little bit into most of my fruity mixes. Also fits surprisingly well in here.
TPA Koolada: I like my recipes to be very cold. Adjust the percentage to your liking.
This recipe exists because of Foment_life's spectacular pear trinity, as found in his recipe DAAPled Pears. The combination of FA Pear, TFA Pear, and FA Fuji is hands down the best, most realistic pear I've ever had in vape form. I'll repeat what I said in my review of DAAPled Pears: it is a smooth, sweet, crisp work of art.
I wanted to see what this pear trinity would do in a Placid-esque recipe (I assume everyone is aware of Adirondack's Placid . . .if not look it up). I combined the pear trinity with VT Persian Lime, WF Strawberry Gummy Candy, TFA Honeysuckle, and LA Cheesecake. I wanted a cream presence in this recipe and find LA Cheesecake to be a perfect neutral cream. It has a heavenly aroma and adds a full, creamy mouth-feel to this bright fruit/floral mix. It turns this into a creamy, sherbet-like version of Placid. I could also see this pear trinity working with VT Fizzy Sherbet and/or VT Yoghurt Drink.
Even if you don't mix this . . . please don't sleep on the beauty that Foment_life has created with DAAPled Pears.
Crisp and juicy with the perfect sweet-tart snap, a very realistic Fuji apple, (I swear I can taste the skin of the Apple, and the sweet perfect fruit underneath) natural sugar flavor you'd expect from an apple without tasting artificial.
