The Floradora is a classic cocktail that you might not know, but you should know because it is a truly fabulous (and rather sexy) gin drink. It is semi-sweet, tall, refreshing, and beautifully pink. One might even call the Floradora the "original girly drink."
The cocktail was named after the first Broadway musical hit comedy of the same name in the early 1900s. The name was originally spelled "Florodora" following the show name and the cocktail was a hit among New York's high society up through the 1950s.
Originally, the drink was made with raspberry syrup, but now uses framboise liqueur (raspberry-flavored) almost exclusively. There are a number of raspberry liqueurs available with Chambord (black raspberry) being the most common poured into today's Floradora cocktails.
FA Gin is an uber realistic gin which perfectly encapsulates that familiar and distinct juniper flavor. This is the main flavor note of the cocktail and pulls through beautifully without overpowering.
The raspberry combo has been my go-to for years and just works so well here. Authentic, slightly tart and semi sweet raspberry goodness.
TPA Ginger ale can be a bitch but used low, it provides just the right amount of a ginger ale vibe without annihilating the rest of the ingredients.
A wedge of lemon and handful of ice tops of our cocktail perfectly.
My entry for mixer's club from the reddit diy ejuice for dec '18. I was surprised by the reception that was positive. This is still a work in progress because I feel like there's still some places I'd like to take this especially based on the feedback I got.
FA Gin & Blackcurrant. This started right out of the box with a pairing of FA Gin and Black Currant. If you want a simple berry cocktail, I'd try FA gin at 2% with Black currant at 1%. I enjoyed this for some time because I felt the citrus notes gave me a grapefruit-y feel and I decided to pursue that in adding the next layers. To me, this has been my base start for all my gin drinks. FA Gin is described as juniper heavy and booze light. I love it. i bumped it up to 3% here because at 2% with the other flavors it just wasn't shining through enough. In simpler mixes, I always keep it at 2%.
CAP Mixed berry & TPA DragonFruit - This was added to give a nondescript boost to the berry flavor in the profile and add a touch of sweetness. DF was added because the whole thing got too dry. You could probably swap the MB with different fruits for a change and DF out with whatever you prefer to use to add juiciness. I went with tried and true and it worked fine enough I didn't feel the need to uncover those rocks.
CAP Sweet Guava - added to boost the grapefruit notes, sweetness and to play off the berries. I think it worked well here and probably wouldn't swap it out, myself. It maybe wasn't as successful in boosting the grapefruit notes as it was in just making this a more rounded vape.
INW Lemon Mix & FA Lime Tahity CP - This ratio (0.25:0.5) is my standard lemon/lime wedge for drinks. It's aggressive and lasts through a steep, (though the lime fades more for me). This is swappable in my opinion. DIY, baby.
Coolant - I felt Polar blast worked well here. Adjust to taste.
Variant: Adding 2-3% VT Botanical Gin and lowering FA Gin to 2% makes this a much boozier vape. Adding 2% VT tonic water for a more realistic cocktail taste but without that effervescent pop.
Enjoy and leave feedback/suggestions as you like. It's always appreciated.
Well Here is my weekly drink mix... This is my Midori Sour I am heavy on the wild melon , and using the jack fruit & papaya to round out the melon flavor .. Lemon Sicily to add the sour note oba oba to clean it up , and sweetener to help with the over all sweetness(this is a sweet type liquor).. and Gin to add the presumption of alcohol to it.. i hope everyone enjoys it ....
Optional : is the WS23 cooling agent
Another Mixer's Club entry. This is uniquely delicious and possibly one of the best recipes I have ever created. The only problem with it is it needs citrus support because the FLV Lemonade will fade within 2 weeks. I will eventually update it and include detailed notes once I get the right support figured out that doesn't mess with the delicate balance of some crazy ingredients. I just wanted to go ahead and put it out there in the world.
Description: A ginger-lemonade spiked with gin with an exotic floral twist.
Everyone knows a Martini is gin (FA Gin) and vermouth (FW Martini + FA Bitter Wizard) that usually has an olive in it.
Did you know a Dirty Martini is a martini that also has olive brine in it?
A Pickletini is similar, but uses pickle brine.
A Gibson is a martini with a cocktail onion instead of an olive.
OoO Pickle is a pickle flavor with an odd oniony note.
Ergo, Pickle Gibson.
Shaken, not stirred, with WS-23. Garnish with a twist of INW Lemon Mix and an FLV Basil leaf. Cheers!
Big thanks to @Tamberina for encouraging words after trying an unfinished version of this, @ConcreteRiver for pointing me in the direction of FW Martini and helping to finalize the recipe, and @MattDGTL for turning Mr. Gibson into a Pickle.
Spotted Shops is my take on the coconut gin fizz drink.
It's refreshing, mysterious, creamy.
CAP Lemon Meringue / FW Butter Toffee/ FA Liquid Amber
ist the thick creamy base with that special treat of the liquid amber, the Butter Toffee thickens the Lemon Meringue and takes down the Pie note a bit.
FA Gin / FA Lemon Sicily / CAP Coconut
is the alcaholic part of the drink, the gin is just there to kick out the lemon a bit more, the coconut acts to bind the cream base to the top notes
Iced Volcano Gin is an interesting recipe which breaks a lot of your weekly routines and your all day vapes
I created it to use is in any good rda, rta or even good sub ohm tanks, just make sure that you maybe lower the VG % if using it in subohm tanks.
I crafted this recipe mainly on a dotmod petri and the hadaly.
The flavor profile is strong, floral, sweet and unusual.
Maybe a fresh breeze in all the creams, candys, custards.
FA Marshmallow - you all know what it does, binding the flavors together, balancing sweet and tart
TPA Cotton Candy - sweetens up your life
FLV Lemon Grass - well it does something to this mix, the exotic floral note really gets me here
INW Sparkling Wine - no seen very often but this also gives you a new tasting sensation
FA Gin - the lower, stronger note of my Gin
FM Gin Orange - suprising cool flavor, floral and unexpected
FA Hypnotic Mist - adds that special something to the mix, used it for the first time and i like it
Mix it at 70/30 and steep for 5 days or more
If the recipe is too strong for you, lower both Gin's a bit
Hope you all like something experimental and new
This one is a very strange flavour composition - but I like to vape it to have a break from sweet or fruity flavours. It reminds me of that kind of a situation when you're enjoying some blueberries in a hot sauna and someone nearby is eating a good sweet orange, so you decide to take a bite from that too. Why the sauna ? Mix it up and see for yourself.
Gin - In this recipe, the gin is mixed with blueberry and orange and magically turns into a juniper wood flavour with no actual taste but a lingering and somewhat savoury specific smell that feels very refreshing and surprising to your palate. Resulting smell, when mixed with blueberry and orange listed below, feels like a distinctive smell when you enter a hot wooden sauna and take a deep breath. To make things more sweet - I shall use a bit of a Strawberry ripe here, so gin won't kick.
Blueberry & Orange - INW Blueberry carries strong ripe jammy blueberry flavour which, at below median percentage, I shall pair with FW Blood Orange - a sketchy flavouring, but definitely good and one of its kind. As a result - I got nice and sweet full blueberry flavour with peel and a pulp, not too jammy, but still sweet and an orange peel flavour that resulted from high percentage of FW Blood Orange used. Orange peel feels quite refreshing, especially when paired with juniper and blueberry. And INW Grapefruit when used that low will provide a substantial kick for the blueberry, so it won't feel so heavy as usual.
Try to mix it, seriously. Let your palate be surprised for a moment.
Rhubarb and tangy apple gin with authentic juniper berry flavour. Imagine a mixed long gin drink with fresh and tangy apple juice and a rhubarb syrup - that's my perception of this recipe.
Gin itself - During my research of FA Gin I found it to mostly carry a juniper berry flavour than an actual gin flavour, so taking it from 2 to 3% at 2,8% max in a mix and adding a bit of INW Cactus, I made FA Gin feel more "drinkable" and juicy. To sweeten the whole thing up I've decided to use a bit of Strawberry ripe - just to get the sweetness without getting an actual strawberry flavour.
Apple & Rhubarb - To provide an authentic "boozy" feel of this mixed drink I've used FA Fuji as a fresh, tangy apple with a bite that will compliment the gin part. As for rhubarb - here goes a nice one - INW Rhubarb, IMO pretty much universal flavouring that carry an authentic rhubarb flavour with a rhubarb sour peel, it can make a drink more juicy and sour and add that specific rhubarb note, it can be also used in cakes and stuff - but that's the whole other story. Be mindful, though, don't use it over 0,5%, this flavouring can overpower every other with ease. In the end we've got a fresh and a bit sour apple and rhubarb mix that will be good in a drink and will be very light, but not creamy smooth, to provide our mixed drink a kick it needs.
Syrup - While I added TFA Strawberry ripe to the mix already to make it sweet, let's add a syrupy texture by adding INW Raspberry Shisha, it will add a smooth texture and will make our fruity mix more syrupy, so it can be mixed into our drink and blend with it well.
