This was a nightmare to create! Aperol Spritz is a very famous italian cocktail based on Aperol bitter, champagne and sparkling water. Of course the star of the show is the Aperol with it's orange and aromatic herbs in it. The champagne in this cocktail it's mainly the stage where Aperol will act.
In order to create the right orange mix I tried really a lot of them in the market, but at the end, not a coincidence IMHO, the italians oranges of FA( FA orange and FA tanger) where the most similar to the orange flavor of Aperol.
I tried a lot of herbs too, but all they would distract the nose. So I started searching for bitter notes and of course I found the FA bitter wizard, but it has an off note in it, so I searched for other flavors with a bitter in it to pair with FA bitter wizard. At the end the best answer was FA bergamot in order to remain in citrus area and get a bitter note to pair to FA bitter wizard.
But the very fascinating and strange thing in Aperol Spritz is the combination of bitter and sweet. Of course I used a bit of CAP super sweet, but a bit of vanillin was really necessary here to give a sweet contrast to the recipe.
For champagne I used TPA champagne both for calm down the cost of this recipe with something cheap and because this is not a bully wine flavor like others.
At the end I worried about how to give a sparkling esperience to this recipe. I watched a lot of Noted episode in youtube to find inspiration and at the end the answer came from @ID10T and his endorcement of VT fizzy sherbet.
Now guys I really ask you from the bottom of my heart to review this recipe in order to give me a partial compensation for all this work on it.
Simple Orange ice cream using ID10-T's 1 2 3 idea.
I'm still trying to figure out VT Mandarin. IMHO it is a candy orange but has an almost effervescent quality to it (ALMOST). I'm just getting into Orange vapes so my stockpile of flavors is limited. This is the most candy-like orange I have and it works pretty well here.
FA Orange gets a bad rap but it's very realistic which seemed to balance out the VT mandarin's syrupy taste plus it's strong enough to show up @ 1%.
LB Vanilla Ice Cream was a no brainer for me since I don't get pepper from it and it works well @ 3%.
I didn't use sweetener because VT mandarin is very sweet already but it's DIY so if you like it sweeter then go for it.
Working on a Jaffa Cake based on the description from my live stream on 2/3/18.

Never had the real deal so I have no idea how close we got.
I figured since we are now eating em, we may as well vape em too.
This was quickly thrown together... never to be mixed again.
FA Whiskey - Gives it a bite. Something subtle in the backend to throw off everything. Adds that soapy hand sanitizer.
JF Marshmallow - The pods sit on a bed of chalk. At a higher percentage, the dry marshmallow adds to a whole bite.
FA Orange / Lime Tahity / Liquid Amber / HS Blueberry - Based off the blue and orange pods, easily needed a fruit note. Orange is self explanitory while the Blueberry needed a more 'green' note sting. The Lime Tahity brings on that Pledge lemon, while Liquid Amber gives a gel feel overall.
CAP Jelly Candy - Some plastic note, almost waxy coating.
CAP Super Sweet - Wayne told me to.
