Earthy TFA Jackfruit and TFA Papaya work so well together with a touch of FA Lime Tahity (cold pressed). FA Pear keeps that earthy taste wet while adding to the tropical vibe. TFA Marshmallow sweetens without additional sweeteners and a touch of INW Shisha Vanilla just works to turn this into a sweet and fruity island drink. Original recipe had 1.5% TFA Vanilla Swirl instead so if you don’t have Shisha Vanilla feel free to sub. SNV certified.
Lemon lime slush with a sharp grapefruit, sweet and icy and straightforward.
This is the only recipe my girlfriend asks me to make for her again and again.
FLV Lime has that slushy type lime flavour but has a nasty chemical flavour also so i had to cover it with other flavours like pink guava, tahity lime and 2% ws-23.
FW Kiwi adds a little something extra to all the citrusy flavours, it tames them down maintaining the tropical vibe.
Ws-23 and super sweet balance each other so its not a blast of ice covering everything.
The Mai Tai is one of the most famous Tiki drinks in the world. Composed of rum, orange curaçao, fresh lime juice and orgeat (almond syrup), it’s dominated cocktail menu's for decades. Pineapple juice was a later improvisation, never part of the original base. According to legend, the name Mai Tai came from the first person to ever try the cocktail who shouted “Mai Tai!” which means “the best—out of this world” in Tahitian.
I made a conscious depiction, from the onset, to stick to "classic" flavours to pay homage to this classic cocktail. I admit that some of the new kids on the block (MB, VT, etc) can serve as a suitable analogue to some of these flavours but I wanted to keep it as authentic & traditional as possible.
Pineapple duo - a classic, combo of the godfathers of pineapple in INW & Cap Golden. This combo just works so well together and lays a rock solid foundation. Authentic, fresh & ripe pineapple = no more, no less...
Shisha Orange is a full, juicy, fresh orange with no artificial notes. This is a straight up orange without the excessive acidic notes (one extreme) or cloying sweetness (other extreme) present in many orange concentrates. There is a fabulous zesty back note which emphasizes the authenticity perfectly. Did I mention that it does not fade - ever!
Lime Tahity is the obvious choice, given its name!... There's not much more I can say about this phenom other than that it is a refreshing, slightly tart, fresh & authentic lime juice.
FA Almond replicates the orgeat, and in reality struggles a bit to push through the relatively strong fruit notes. It announces itself more prominently after a couple of days and sits proudly in the background. The addition of a touch of sweetener boosts the nuttiness slightly.
FA Jamaica rounds off our captivating cocktail and by adding the traditional rum forward taste profile. Feel free to drop the rum to 0.5 for a less rum prominent experience.
Sweeten to taste & enjoy!

What better way to represent this theme than to pay tribute to two of my long time best friends in this community.
This was a total shot in the dark here as I wasn't sure how these two would meld together. These two recipes on their own are outstanding. Two of my favorite recipes, DAAPled Pears by u/FomentLife and Sunshine State by u/eyemakepizza were smashed together to create a delicious union of citrus fruits and mouth-shattering cream. I left out the pear in Foment's mix and only utilized the brilliant creamy base. Sunshine State was used at its fullest here, with no changes. As I vape this, my mind wanders to a strange real-life version of fresh citrus sherbet bathed in a rich vanilla cream. Give this the full week to come together.
